This virtual conference will be conducted on 'Zoom Webinar'. CSH Asia will inform all the registrants of all necessary information about the zoom meeting, including the meeting ID and the link to the zoom meeting room, at least one week before the start of the meeting via email. Please do check your mailbox from time to time. For inquiries, please contact us via [email protected]


The current COVID-19 situation is challenging and difficult for all of us - we hope this virtual conference will allow colleagues to share and discuss their latest research, while under travel and stay-at-home restrictions.


The conference will include six oral sessions and one poster session covering the latest findings across many topics in biomedicine . Many talks will be selected from the openly submitted abstracts on the basis of scientific merit and relevance. Social events throughout the conference provide ample opportunity for informal interactions.

Major Topics:

1. Modeling and analysis of biological systems and ecosystem

2. Biomedicine development (e.g. antibiotics, neuronal medicine, cancer-drug, genetic diseases and gene therapy, etc...)

3. Novel drug screening methods and clinical studies.

4. Broad surveys of new tools of biophysical principles and computational tools:

Computational modeling, machine learning, bioinformatics tools, neural-networks, imaging and sequence analysis, and robots.
