Trace element meeting of BSC proves a success
The annual meeting of the Biological Trace Elements Branch of Biophysical Society of China (BSC) and the 4th China International Conference on Biological Trace Elements were held at Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province on Nov 30.
Nearly 300 scholars and experts in the fields of trace element metabolism and translational medical research from various institutes at home and abroad participated in the conferences.
The annual meeting has been another international-level academic exchange event in the frontier field of trace element research since the establishment of the Biological Trace Elements Branch of BSC in August 2018.
Professor Liu Pingsheng, secretary-general of BSC, Professor Tian Mei from Zhejiang University, Esther Meyron-Holtz from Israel Institute of Technology and a number of renowned academics gathered together to initiate a series of discussions around topics from basic research to clinical transformation.
Forums on special topics were also opened on Dec 1. Young scholars and students carried out academic exchanges and interactions with their peers about leading-edge technologies such as single-cell sequencing and gene editing, iron death and human health, and application for National Natural Science Funds.
The event provided a platform for the exchange and cooperation among scholars and researchers in the field of trace element research at home and abroad, and actively promoted the integration of basic researches and transformation applications.
