The 4th International Anatomical Sciences and Cell Biology Conference (IASCBC)

The advances in microscopy, cell and molecular biology have placed the anatomical science and cell biology at new horizons. Anatomical science is no longer a morphological discipline on structures and functions. Recent development in live cell imaging enables us to examine normal and disease processes in real time. The State-of-the-Art super-resolution microscopy and intravital imaging have provided us with powerful investigative tools to study molecular events in live cells, tissues and animals. In education, innovative teaching methodology of anatomical sciences and cell biology facilitates students to explore and learn in an interactive environment. By integrating digital histology atlas with in-class teaching and introducing live-video sharing of aberrant or special anatomical structures during dissection session, it enhances the effectiveness of learning experience.

For this year’s meeting, distinguished speakers in various disciplines of anatomical sciences and cell biology shall be invited to share their achievements. The meeting will comprise of a full day workshop on advanced imaging platforms including super-resolution microscopy and intravital imaging. This will be followed by two-day programme with sessions on neurosciences, developmental biology, cancer, stem cell biology and novel biotechnology platforms in cell biology. There will also be sessions on body donation programme and education in anatomical sciences and cell biology. The meeting will provide us an ideal opportunity to establish collaborative network and promote research and teaching in these disciplines. Let us explore the frontiers in sciences and teaching in this exciting meeting.
