Tuesday, Sep. 10, 2013

Grand Hyatt, Taipei

On behalf of 2013 Taiwan-Swiss Biomedical Symposium, we have the honor and pleasure to invite you to participate in the opening session of the program.

Taiwan-Swiss Biomedical Symposium was initiated in 2006, which brought together scientists from around the world to Taiwan to share the latest development on neuroscience. The topic for 2013 Taiwan-Swiss Biomedical Symposium will focus on translational medicine.

Novartis delegation from around the world will assemble top translational medicine scientists from Novartis Institute for BioMedical Research (NIBR), Academia Sinica and other research institutes to seek the opportunity for mutual collaboration.

This program aims to foster scientific exchange between Taiwan and Novartis scientists and to identify collaboration opportunities. Through experience and knowledge sharing on current and upcoming research in the area of translational medicine at Novartis and Taiwan, we can expand and deepen the bilateral research ties.

We look forward to your participation.

Sincerely yours,
