Conference Introduction

Nature Conference on In Vitro Diagnostics/The 4th Chinese Experimental Medicine Conference (CEMC)2019  is going to be hosted from March 21st to 24th, at Nanchang International Convention Center.

The 4th CEMC will be jointly hosted with Nature, which is one of the world's top academic journals. It is the first time that Nature will hold an academic activity with the theme of in-vitro diagnostics for brilliant plenary lecture inviting distinguished academicians, experts and specialists from Chinese Academy of Engineering/Science, American Academy of Science in different fields such as experimental medicine, preclinical medicine and biomedical engineering. These leading-edged professionals at domestic and overseas will give us splendid speeches in experimental medicine development, international advanced technology and the latest achievements in scientific research to carry out extensive communication and discussion. Mr. Pep Pàmies, chief editor of Nature will elaborate deeply in experimental and clinical application fields for significant scientific technology.

The conference is supplying simultaneous interpretation from cover to cover aiming at presenting a wonderful academic feast. CEMC is going to make some guiding reports around following topics: macro country policies, latest industry achievements, future directions and development potential of the industry. At the same time, we will discuss the most concerned hot pots and problems. For the purpose of encouraging technology innovation, improving the research results transformation, the conference will establish the special stage for research results patent publish, which can be considered as the communication platform among the industry, experts and research. Simultaneously, for the purpose of encouraging those experts, researchers and entrepreneurs who have contributed to the experimental medicine field, the conference organizes the Chinese experimental medicine annual dissertation award, and Chinese IVD innovative product (instrument/reagents) award, the award will be commended during the conference.

We sincerely invite experts, researchers, and entrepreneurs from science and research management and experimental medicine fields (including diagnostic, pathology, transfusion, nuclear medicine, central lab, clinical lab, etc.), to drive the development of science research, manufacture and application in experimental medicine field.

Hosted together with Nature Conference/4th CEMC 2019, the 16th CACLP Expo 2019, the 6th China IVD Industry Development Conference (originally called Bode China International In-Vitro Diagnostics Industry Forum), and the 2nd Enlightening Lab Med · IVD Youth Entrepreneur Forum is going to start on that days in Nanchang.
