CHENGDU, China, Aug. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Six Nobel Prize Laureates and over 20 internationally acclaimed researchers and scientists will present at the third annual, "World Nobel Prize Laureate Summit" (WNPLS) in Chengdu, China, September 2-3, 2016. The 2016 WNPLS will feature three programs of scientific exploration: 1) "Anpac Bio World Youth Innovation Forum"; 2) "International Symposium for Precision Medicine"; and 3) the "Bio-Pharmaceutical Industry Forum".
The 2016 WNPLS participating Nobel Prize Laureates are:
- Richard J. Roberts, WNPLS Co-Chair & 1993 Nobel Laureate, Physiology or Medicine
- Aaron Ciechanover, 2004 Nobel Laureate, Chemistry & 2016 WNPLS Speaker
- Martin L. Chalfie, 2008 Nobel Laureate, Chemistry & 2016 WNPLS Speaker
- Sheldon L. Glashow, 1979 Nobel Laureate, Physics & 2016 WNPLS Speaker
- Harald zur Hausen, 2008 Nobel Laureate, Physiology or Medicine & 2016 WNPLS Speaker
- Craig C. Mello, 2006 Nobel Laureate, Physiology or Medicine & 2016 WNPLS Speaker
The WNPLS leadership and corporate sponsor Anpac Bio-Medical Science Company will host WNPLS' Program I: "Anpac Bio World Youth Innovation Forum" (ABWYIF). Featuring the theme, "Serendipity in Science", the ABWYIF will differ from many scientific meetings by focusing on the importance of "chance" in the process of scientific research. Presenting Nobel Laureates will share with thousands of young scientists their own, personal experiences of scientific inquiry, challenges, failures, and disruptions; before eventually achieving their Nobel Prize Award-winning breakthroughs. The Laureates' presentations will demonstrate through hard work, overcoming and investigating obstacles, and "following the science", all scientists may eventually realize their own Nobel dreams.
"Anpac Bio-Medical Science Company is very proud to sponsor the inaugural 'Anpac Bio World Youth Innovation Forum' at this year's 'World Nobel Prize Laureate Summit'," states Chris Yu, Anpac Bio CEO and ABWYIF Moderator. "Our company's mission is to foster novel and innovative technology to detect and treat disease. Many of our breakthroughs were the result of both persistence and 'Serendipity in Science.' Therefore, when the Laureates suggested sharing their personal experiences of overcoming obstacles and investigating surprises to achieve significant, scientific discoveries, we immediately chose to help them."
Led by Zhan Qimin, Director of China's State Key Laboratory of Molecular Oncology, WNPLS' Program II, the "International Symposium for Precision Medicine", will highlight research advancements and breakthroughs in Precision Medicine - particularly impacting cancer research. Among the subjects presented in WNPLS Program II: Cellular and Molecular Biology, Chemistry in Cancer, Tumor Genesis, Clinical Research Trials, Epidemiology, Endocrinology, Targeted Molecular Therapy, and Immunology, among others.
WNPLS' Program III is the "Bio-Pharmaceutical Industry Forum" - encouraging WNPLS participants to build new connections with Bio-Pharmaceutical contemporaries; while connecting in lively and thought-provoking discussions, and learning directly from world-renowned leaders engaging Bio-Pharmaceutical advancements in the ongoing battle against cancer.
The meeting of international researchers and scientists at the WNPLS is due to the cooperation of a multi-national coalition, including: International Society of Scientific Communications for Nobel Prize Laureates (ISSCNL); China Association of Chinese Medicine; Chinese Medical Doctor Association; China International Conference Center for Science and Technology; Technology World Nobel Medical Media Company; sponsors; Chengdu Provincial Government; the Chengdu Hi-Tech Industrial Development Zone; and others.
"The vision of the World Nobel Prize Laureate Summit is to bring the world's most eminent scientists together in China, to organize and improve collaborative efforts with their counterparts, and to invigorate a new generation of young students and scientists," states Roberts. "I hope that the participants attending this meeting will find the talks inspirational and thought-provoking; and will be stimulated to make groundbreaking discoveries that will revolutionize the biosciences and benefit mankind."
