Biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences has greatly enhanced our understanding of molecular and cellular mechanisms underpinning various aspects of living organisms in health and disease. Many of the outstanding questions in biomedical research call for interdisciplinary collaboration among scientists in basic science, clinical medicine, and pharmaceutical sciences. Accordingly, the goal of Technical Group F symposium is to present the latest advances in biological, medical, and pharmaceutical sciences, to facilitate mutual understanding of these rapidly advancing fields, and to foster collaboration across the disciplines. We will focus on introducing latest developments in not only biomedical principles but technologies to enrich our understanding. This year our symposium is designed to cover topics ranging from basic biology to translational science to clinical medicine. Specifically we will focus on cardiovascular science, cancer, diabetes, immunology, neuroscience, systems biology and bioinformatics, and drug discovery. We will also collaborate with leaders in other symposiums to create interdisciplinary forums. I believe that this symposium will offer an invaluable opportunity for a wide range of scientists, engineers, and physicians to broaden their perspectives and to facilitate collaboration among participants.
