The 7th Springer Nature Cell Death & Disease Symposium on Translational Medicine

The 7th Cell Death & Disease Symposium on Translational Medicine will be held in Changzhou, China, from October 18–20. In line with the "Translational Medicine" theme, the symposium will focus on cutting-edge discoveries in cell death and differentiation—related disease mechanisms and therapeutic approaches. The organization committee is honored to have recruited a team of world-renowned experts in cell death, proliferation, stem cells, cancer, and immunology to present their exciting findings.

This symposium represents a highly focused and intimate forum to foster interactions and collaborations among renowned scientists and young investigators from both inside and outside of China. One of the highlights is the discussion with a group of Nature Publication Group journal editors on how to publish scientific papers. On behalf of the Springer Nature journal Cell Death & Disease, the symposium committee will be presenting awards in several categories to promising young scientists.
