The founding ceremony for the Terahertz Biophysics Academic Subgroup of the Biophysical Society of China (BSC) was held in Guangzhou, capital city of South China's Guangdong province on Nov 18.
The event attracted the participation of over 40 subgroup members engaged in terahertz biophysics research at major universities and research institutes in China, as well as some business representatives.
At the founding meeting, Chang Chao, head of the academic subgroup, gave a briefing on the current situation in terahertz research in China and the challenges and opportunities it faced.
He said that under the BSC's leadership, the subgroup would spare no effort to develop a platform for attracting terahertz researchers in China, to share their latest research progress and promote research of terahertz biophysics in China.
After the ceremony, the first academic seminar of the subgroup was held and plans were made for the second session of the subgroup forum to be held in the city of Tianjin in 2021.
The subgroup aims to build a multi-form and high-level communications platform.
Among other things, it will explore the development status, opportunities and challenges faced by terahertz technology and future application prospects.
It will aim to strengthen domestic and international academic exchanges and cooperation in the terahertz industry and break through theoretical and technological bottlenecks restricting the development of terahertz science and technology.
It will also aim to produce a number of domestic first-class and international landmark achievements, seize the strategic high ground for terahertz technology development and effectively promote technological progress and the industrial development of terahertz biophysics in China.
