The PRESDA Foundation is organising it’s 2014 Asian Conference on Life Sciences (ACLS) and is kindly inviting you to participate. The event will be held on August 27 – 29, 2014 in Hiroshima, Japan at the KKR Hotel Hiroshima in parallel with the 2014 Symposium on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Asia (WASH).
The explosive development of the life sciences and its expansion into other disciplines such as the IT field is yielding groundbreaking discoveries from novel genes and bio-products to cutting-edge nanotechnology, resulting in a transformed science landscape with profound global applications in understanding life, eradicating diseases, securing a more equitable food and water supply/distribution as well as creating novel bio-industries and products. The sheer scope and number of these scientific advances and the never-ending influx of knowledge, while at times overwhelming, both challenge and inspire hope for an improved quality of life for all.
Hiroshima, Japan, the City of Peace, is proud to host the 2014 Life Sciences Conference. The three-day conference will provide an interdisciplinary platform for academics, researchers, policy makers, students and professionals. With the theme Global Trends in Life Sciences, it is hoped that this intersection of disciplines will help scientists and professionals to stay at the leading edge of recent advances in life sciences, act as a catalyst for further research, improve international collaboration while bridging the scientific and technological differences between developed and developing nations, and foster global health security.
