Select Biosciences South East Asia is delighted to announce that our Enabling Genomic Technologies and Screening Asia Conference and Exhibition will take place at the Biopolis, Singapore on the 11th and 12th September 2014. 

We are co-hosting the event with The Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) at A*STAR’s state of the art conference facilities within the Biopolis, the Biomedical Science hub for Singapore. 

The event will have two concurrent conference tracks, with presentations from the leading scientists within these fields. The first conference track will cover Enabling Genomic Technologies and we are proud to welcome Dr. Kosuke Yusa as our Keynote Speaker for the meeting. Dr. Kosuke Yusa is a member of the Sanger Institute Faculty, UK.

We are also pleased to welcome both Dr. Ramanuj DasGupta, Group Leader/Senior Investigator, GIS, Cancer Therapeutics & Stratified Oncology, Assoc. Professor, NYU Cancer Institute and Dr. Pauline Ng, Group Leader/Senior Investigator, GIS, Chief Informatics Officer, Polaris. They will be representing our partner, The Genome Institute Singapore (GIS).  

The second track is entitled Screening Asia and we are privileged to have Dr. Alex Matter, M.D., Professor David Virshup and Dr. Litao Zhang, as our Keynote Speakers. 

Dr. Matter is the CEO of the Experimental Therapeutics Centre, A*STAR, Singapore. Professor Virshup is the inaugural Director of the Cancer and Stem Cell Biology Program at the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School in Singapore. Dr Litao Zhang is the Vice President of Leads Discovery and Optimization, Bristol-Myers Squibb.

Attending this meeting will give you an excellent opportunity for networking with like-minded peers, helping you to find unique solutions and build long term collaborations. With all delegates having full access to both conference tracks, everyone has the opportunity to develop the specific agenda of their choice. 

Select Biosciences South East Asia is looking forward to welcoming you to this exciting event, and we hope that your experience will be both informative and enjoyable.
