The China Post - - LOCAL -

A con­fer­ence to kick off this week will bring to­gether sci­en­tists from Tai­wan and Is­rael in an ef­fort to strengthen bi­lat­eral co­op­er­a­tion in life sciences.

The 2nd Bi­lat­eral Is­rael-Tai­wan Life Sciences Con­fer­ence, ti­tled “From Ba­sic to Trans­la­tional Re­search in Life Sciences,” will be held June 7-9 at Is­rael’s Tel Aviv Uni­ver­sity.

Lead­ing sci­en­tists from both sides will present their lat­est work at the con­fer­ence, the largest science event be­tween the two coun­tries to take place in Is­rael, said Is­rael’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive of­fice in Tai­wan.

It will be at­tended by 18 speak­ers and poster pre­sen­ters from Tai­wan, as well as other speak­ers and re­search stu­dents from Is­rael, it said.

“This con­fer­ence will en­able the 21st cen­tury lead­ers in the area of life sciences to present their ground break­ing dis­cov­er­ies, which have al­ready led — and will con­tinue to trans­late — into im­prov­ing life qual­ity, treat dis­ease and col­lab­o­rate for a bet­ter fu­ture for mankind,” said Is­rael’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive to Tai­wan Si­mona Halperin, a driv­ing force for the up­com­ing event.

This con­fer­ence could be a path­way for in­creased col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the sci­en­tific com­mu­ni­ties of Tai­wan and Is­rael, she said.
