'Pan-Asian hub' for life scientists to open in Suzhou, China, on Monday, April 6
Date:4/5/2010

Cold Spring Harbor, NY and Suzhou, China A major new hub of activity for scientists at the leading edge of research in the life sciences will be launched in Suzhou, China, this coming Monday, April 6th, with the opening session of the 1st James Watson Cancer Symposium.

"Our object is to make the Suzhou Dushu Lake Conference Center the premier hub for scientists throughout Asia who are exploring the frontiers of molecular biology, biomedicine and biotechnology," says CSHL's Dr. David Stewart.

CSHL's President, Dr. Bruce Stillman, said he hopes the CSH Asia program will have a tangible impact on the way science is communicated within Asia, where, he observed, researching the life sciences is growing at a faster rate than anywhere else in the world.

A search of the Pub Med database shows this clearly. Over the last 10 years, the number of English-language peer-reviewed papers published annually by scientists in China has more than doubled, while in Taiwan, Korea, India and Australia growth has been between 60% and 95%.
