Welcome

Distinguished colleagues and dear friends:

To promote the development of translational medicine and precision medicine in China, and facilitate international exchanges and cooperation in these fields, the Peking Union Medical College Hospital (PUMCH) will convene the Sixth PUMCH Conference on Translational Medicine in Beijing from November 13-15, 2015. On behalf of the organizing committee, I cordially invite you to attend the conference. 

After five successful sessions, the PUMCH Conference on Translational Medicine has grown into a first-rate, annual conference on translational medicine in China, boasting widespread international influence. The Peking Union Medical College Hospital founded its Center for the Research of Translational Medicine in the year 2010. Joining hands with medical elites from across the country, PUMCH is committed to establishing the center as a leading international platform for research in translational medicine. In 2013, under the overall planning of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), a key national infrastructure facility for translational medicine was established in the hospital, focusing primarily on cerebrovascular disease and difficult and complicated medical cases with relation to aging. The facility is poised to become the central node in a national research network for translational medicine, playing a major role in facilitating the rapid application of advances in basic and clinical research, and promoting the rapid development of the related medical industries. 

This year marks the sixth anniversary of the founding of PUMCH’s Center for the Research of Translational Medicine, and the sixth time that PUMCH has convened the PUMCH Conference on Translational Medicine since the event was first held in 2007. Revolving around the theme of translational medicine and precision medicine in China, this year’s conference will have a particular focus on the fields of tumors, cerebrovascular disease, metabolism, infection and immunity, and difficult and complicated medical cases. With speeches from renowned experts, discussion panels, satellite meetings, and various other activities, the conference will provide attendees with an open, shared, and international platform on which to communicate and interact.  

We are dedicated to creating a sincere, rigorous, and practical platform for academic exchanges in the field of translational medicine in China. Let us gather in Beijing to share the latest academic developments, and find inspiration amidst the collision of ideas, Together, we can usher in a new chapter in the development of translational medicine in China. 

May the conference be a resounding success!
