SZBL Young Scientist Symposium Successfully Held



More than ninety people participated on August 29 and 30 when Shenzhen Bay Laboratory (SZBL) held a Young Scientist Symposium. This symposium co-organized by the Institute of Systems and Physical Biology and the Office of Human Recourse of SZBL aimed to create an opportunity for enhancing communication among all newly-joining scientists so as to facilitate potential scientific collaborations across the SZBL community. 

Most of the participants met remotely through video to practice social distancing while the others attended at the main site of the symposium at SZBL. The symposium started with a speech by SZBL Executive Vice Director WU Yun-Dong, highlighting the connection of scientific missions, development and major science problems. WU Yun-dong called for further exchanges, coordination and more collaborative efforts from all SZBL scientists to collectively address grand scientific challenges. 


The two-day symposium was scheduled into four sections. Sixteen scientists from five SZBL institutes including Institute of Molecular Physiology, Institute of Chemical Biology, Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Institute of Systems and Physical Biology and Institute of Cancer Research shared stories on their science career and research. Participants involved and interacted actively throughout the symposium.
