In the past decades, Taiwan has made significant contributions to the field of biophysics and several of its biotechnology firms have brought drug candidates into the late stages of clinical trials in the U.S. and other countries. Furthermore, the Taiwan’s government recently increased investments into artificial intelligent, deep learning, and computational modeling for biomedical applications. Here, we invite and gather all the membrane biophysics experts in computational modeling and experiment to Taipei, Taiwan. We hope this symposium can provide a platform for linking these efforts, and a future generation of scientist in Taiwan, with the wider biophysical community in the United States, the United Kingdom, China, and Taiwan.
This mini-symposium will be financially sponsored by the Department of Chemistry at King’s College London, Institute of Biomedical Sciences at Academia Sinica, and Biophysical Society in Taiwan. It is free to everyone but registered only. We will promote King’s College London, Academia Sinica, and Biophysical Society in Taiwan during the symposium. It will provide a platform for the talented students in Taiwan who are looking for inspiration and frontier research at leading universities in the United States, the United Kingdom, China, and Taiwan. This mini-symposium will provide presentations from professors allowing the students to inquire and discuss the science. In addition, it will promote more collaboration and bring more ideas to overcome the current challenges in the field.
