Dear Colleagues,

It will be a great honor for us to host you all at the Annual Biobank China 2017(ABC2017) & International Symposium of Precision Medicine, which will take place from November 30th - December 3rd , 2017, in the Empark Grand Hotel Changsha. This hotel is located at No.172 Jintai Road, Kaifu District, Changsha City, Hunan, China.

The tradition of the Annual Biobank China(ABC) Conference and Exhibition is interactive and innovative. Since 2011, five prior ABC workshops have established a global network of professionals, providing the opportunity and momentum for major progress in the development of biobanking and related medical research. The previous conferences attracted international counterparts including physicians, researchers and business representatives from more than 10 countries such as the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Sweden, Canada and Austria. 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, more than five parallel sessions, two seminars and two special interest group programs, the ABC 2017 promises to further advance the continued international collaboration by bringing together leaders, senior professionals, academics and top scientists from all over the world.

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

The theme of ABC 2017 is: 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.
