2019 PPSSC Website under construction

We welcome you to participate in the 12th Pan Pacific Symposium on Stem Cells and Cancer Research (PPSSC 2019), held at Hualien Tzu Chi Hospital, Buddhist Tzu Chi Medical Foundation between May 3rd and 5th, 2019. Because of the fantastic landscape and affable community, PPSSC 2019 will take place again in Hualien so that we can introduce the idyllic scenery of Hualien to all of you.

New diagnoses and treatments have been developed along with new research methods globally, and our vision in this field continues to broaden as we strive for new discoveries. Therefore, we are very pleased to provide a platform that allows doctors, physicians, researchers and clinical investigators worldwide to gather annually and exchange new ideas on topics in stem cell research and new drug development. The program for PPSSC 2019 has copious main themes:

A Disease modeling derived from stem cell and targeted drug delivery.
B Stem cell differentiation by epigenetic regulation.
C Tumor homing peptide for drug delivery and tumor imaging.
D Nanobody and Aptamer application in medicine.
E Clinical application: Neural progenitor transplantation therapies for Neural degenerative diseases.

On behalf of the organizing committee, I sincerely welcome you to join this symposium with us. If you couldn’t attend PPSSC 2018, please do not miss the opportunity this year; if you have attended PPSSC 2018, we welcome you once again to PPSSC 2019 and experience the diverse culture and hospitably of Hualien!

Sincerely yours,
