Dear Colleagues,

It will be a great honor for us to host you all at the Annual Biobank China 2017 (ABC 2017) & International Symposium on Precision Medicine, which will take place from November 30 - December 3, 2017 in the Empark Grand Hotel Changsha. This hotel is located at No.199 Jintai Road, Kaifu District, Changsha, Hunan, China.

The tradition of the Annual Biobank China Conference and Exhibition is interaction and innovation. Since 2011, five prior ABC workshops have established a global network of professionals, offering the opportunity and momentum for major progress in the development of biobanking and related medical research. The previous conferences attracted international counterparts from more than 10 countries, including physicians, researchers and business representatives from the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Sweden, Canada and Austria, etc. At the same time, prior conferences also included a large number of experts from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Pan-European Biobanking and Biomolecular Research Infrastructure (BBMRI), the Public Population Project in Genomics (P3G), the International Society for Biological and Environmental Repositories (ISBER), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB), the College of American Pathologists (CAP) and the Karolinska Institute (KI) to share their experiences about biological sample applications and biobanking.

Comprising five plenary symposiums, five parallel sessions, two seminars and two special interest group programs, ABC 2017 promises to further advance the international collaboration by bringing together leaders, professionals, and top scientists from all over the world.

The theme of ABC 2017 is: Moving Precision Medicine Forward in the 21st Century.

The theme of this conference is “ABC2017: Moving Precision Medicine Forward in the 21st Century”.

Built on the success of its predecessor conferences, the ABC2017 Conference & Exhibition will be one of Asia’s largest and the most up to date Biobanking & Precision Medicine events.

We look forward to seeing you all in Changsha.

The Organizing Committee of ABC 2017
