我们荣幸地邀请您参加第八届北京大学生命科学(与医学)北美年会!本活动又名北京大学生科北美校友年会,将于 2017 7 22 日于美国纽约市的康奈尔大学威尔医学院举行。年会旨在为居住在北美的众多北大生科校友提供一个团聚的机会;也为北大生科校友以及工作于生物医药领域的与会人士提供一个学术交流、职业发展的平台。

自2009年开始举办至今,北大生科北美年会持续传承着北美生科校友的一项优良传统,即由毕业十周年的在美校友年级承办该年年会,借以增进团结,强化凝聚。此次的2017年会正是由北京大学生命科学学院本科2003级校友承办,并由北京大学生命科学学院校友会和北京大学大纽约地区校友会联合协办。历年的聚会吸引了来自北美各地的北大校友及社会各界友人参加。与会者中,既有上世纪50年代入学的老校友,也有初到美国的年轻学生;老少校友济济一堂,重叙燕园情谊成为了与会者的共同话题。

You are cordially invited to attend the 8th PKU Bio-Net Symposium, also known as the 2017 Peking University School of Life Sciences North America Alumni Reunion. The symposium presents a perfect opportunity for the Peking University School of Life Sciences alumni living in North America to get back together. It also provides alumni of Peking University Life Sciences as well as other life sciences professionals an excellent platform for networking and sharing information regarding the latest development in the biology arena and career opportunities. The symposium will be held on Saturday July 22nd, 9 AM – 5:30 PM at Weill Cornell Medical College Uris Auditorium, New York, NY, USA.

The annual Bio-Net Symposium is a tradition honored by the Peking University School of Life Sciences alumni. Since 2009, almost every year a symposium has been organized by the undergraduate class of alumni that had graduated for 10 years. One purpose of this tradition is to strengthen relationships among the alumni. For eight years, the symposium has served Peking University alumni from all over North America as well as friends and life sciences professionals around the world. Attendees range from alumni who went to Peking University in the 1950s to young students who had recently arrived in United States. A common topic for attendees is the good old friendships formed at the beautiful campus of Peking University.

The 8th symposium is organized by alumni from undergraduate class of 2007 (enrolled in 2003) and supported by Peking University School of Life Sciences Alumni Association and Peking University Alumni Association of Greater New York.

Dr. Hong Wu, Dean of Peking University School of Life Sciences and Dr. Chong-Ren Xu, former Dean of Peking University School of Life Sciences will speak at the symposium, bringing greetings from the Alma mater. Highly prestigious speakers from academia and healthcare industry will share their knowledge and experience, with topics including academic breakthroughs, drug development, intellectual property, healthcare policy, and entrepreneurship. Intended as a platform for resources to be shared and integrated, the symposium provides attendees with wonderful opportunities to connect and collaborate.

We look forward to seeing you at the symposium in July!

Sincerely,

The Organization Committee of PKU Bio-Net 2017
