On December 3rd (next Tuesday), CCBS and the Cancer Research Institute will host a one day symposium in the Cal-IT2 auditorium, with speakers representing National Taiwan University (NTU) and UCI. As you may know, CCBS has sought to foster academic exchange and collaboration with NTU—the premier University in Taiwan—for several years. Areas of overlapping interest include Systems Biology, Precision Medicine, Cancer Biology, Immunology, Microbiome Science, Biotechnology and several others. Last year our colleagues at NTU were kind enough to host a Symposium in Taipei, which included talks from Ali Mortazavi, Paul Gershon, Katrine Whiteson, Kyoko Yokomori and myself.
This year they are sending five representatives from NTU to talk alongside six UCI faculty members. A flier and a tenative program are attached. All members of the UCI community are invited to attend, learn about the science being done by some of our Taiwanese colleagues, and have an opportunity to hear about potential opportunities for collaboration and exchange.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
