The 2nd ** EITA-Bio ** Conference

(the EITA-Bio 2012)


"Recent Advances in Biomedical Research"


The Frick Chemistry Laboratory

Princeton University

Princeton, New Jersey, U.S.A.


Saturday-Sunday, October 27-28, 2012




EITA-Bio 2012--the 2nd Bio conference will be held on Saturday-Sunday, October 27-28, 2012 at the Frick Chemistry Laboratory, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, U.S.A.. The conference theme of the EITA-Bio 2012 is "Recent Advances in Biomedical Research". Please visit the EITA-Bio 2012 website for more conference details.

Biomedical Science and Engineering Research represents the research activities in the areas of Medicine, Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Physics, Engineering, New Materials, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), and Health-related topics. These scientists work to understand the biological principles that govern the function of the human body, to discover the mechanisms of disease, and to find innovative ways to treat or cure disease by developing advanced diagnostic tools or new therapeutic strategies. The increased longevity of humans over the past century can be significantly attributed to advances resulting from Biomedical Sciences Research.

The main purpose of the EITA-Bio 2012 conference is connecting the dots to form a big picture for vision and talents. This conference, bringing together a global network of today's best thinkers, visionaries and thought leaders, serves as a multi-disciplinary forum for the discussion and exchange of information on the research, development, and applications on all topics related to Biomedical Science and Engineering.

We are pleased to invite you to attend EITA-Bio 2012 and submit proposals for papers, panels, demonstrations, and SIG discussions. The Conference Review Policy requires that each proposal will be peer-reviewed by for inclusion in the conference program, and CD-ROM proceedings.
