Message from Co-Chairs:
On behalf of Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore, Duke Medicine and SingHealth, we are pleased to host this symposium on “Frontiers in Translational Science : From Preclinical to Clinical Investigation”. As its name implies, this symposium focuses on translational medicine, particularly that which involves clinical application of advances in cellular and molecular biology and genetics. The sessions will explore investigational medicine from the vantage point of clinician-scientists, and the theme running throughout the entire symposium is that of human investigation. We hope that this gathering of investigators from throughout Singapore and from Duke University will develop further interactions between these two great centers of academic medicine, and catalyze innovative collaborations to advance both the development of translational medicine for all partners and its realization for clinical application and commercialization.
We welcome all participants to this exciting event, which is designed to provide everyone with an opportunity to engage in discussions. In addition to the formal talks by leading investigators, we would particularly like to point out the workshops on the final day of the program where all attendees are encouraged to participate.
