Brief & Idea

Cancer has emerged as one of the top ten leading causes of death globally, significantly impacting human health worldwide. It arises from the transformation of normal cells into cancerous ones through complex mechanisms. Understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying cancer initiation and suppression has become a primary focus of biomedical research aimed at combatting this global health concern. In recent years, biomedical research, both globally and in Taiwan, has seen unprecedented advancements in both quality and quantity. While notable progress has been made, modern biomedical research necessitates interdisciplinary collaboration and knowledge sharing. Close interaction and collaboration among diverse fields have become essential practices in advancing biomedical science. The establishment of ICABS aims to facilitate scientific exchange between Taiwanese experts and their international counterparts, fostering mutual benefit and progress in the field.


International Conference on Advanced Biomedical Sciences, Taiwan2024/10/25- 2024/10/26

We are delighted to announce that the annual International Conference on Advanced Biomedical Sciences (ICABS) 2024 will once again be held at China Medical University in Taichung, Taiwan. This esteemed event will bring together leading researchers, academics, and industry professionals from around the world to share and discuss the latest advancements and trends in biomedical sciences. Attendees can look forward to a comprehensive program featuring keynote addresses, research presentations, and extensive networking opportunities. Trainees will also have the opportunity to present their research findings to an international audience. Additionally, this conference will showcase Taiwan's soft power in biomedical research. Join us in Taiwan for ICABS 2024 to engage with cutting-edge research and explore the future of biomedical science and its impact on healthcare.


International Conference on Advanced Biomedical Sciences, Taiwan2023/12/01- 2023/12/02

Following the conference tradition we have organized yet another strong lineup of both international and domestic renowned speakers for the ICABS2023. These speakers include prominent cancer researchers such as Drs. Robert Weinberg and Lewis Cantley along with several Members of the US National Academy of Science and Medicine, Academician of Academia Sinica, acclaimed scholars from US, Singapore, Taiwan, and domestic young investigators. Credit to the lift of travel restrictions affected by COVID, all international speakers will attend the conference in person. We encourage all participants to take advantage of this rare opportunity to interact with these world renowned researchers.
Per request from last year’s participants, a special session again will be devoted to meet the editors-in-chief or senior editors of prominent journals such as Science, Nature, Cancer Cell, and Cancer Discovery. They will share the insights of how to publish in their respective journals. Distinct from last year, in addition to poster sessions to encourage abstract submission from , the ICABS2023 committee will preselect several outstanding abstracts for a short platform presentation.


International Conference on Advanced Biomedical Sciences, Taiwan2022/11/04- 2022/11/06

Continuing with last year's tradition we have again organized a strong lineup of internationally renowned speakers from US, Japan, and Taiwan for ICABS2022. These speakers include a Nobel Laureate, Members of US National Academy of Medicine, Academician of Academia Sinica and several young and senior investigators from Taiwan. Furthermore, we have a special session where speakers are either editors-in-chief or senior editors of prominent journals such as Nature, Cancer Cell, Molecular Cell, and Cancer Research. They will share the insights of how to publish in top-rated journals. It is hoped to promote the publications in high impact journals from biomedical research communities in Taiwan. Similar to last year, ICABS 2022 will have poster sessions to encourage abstract submission from trainees and graduated students. These abstracts will be reviewed and the top 10 abstracts will be selected for an award.


International Conference on Advanced Biomedical Sciences, Taiwan2021/11/19- 2021/11/21
