Introduction: The novel coronavirus, also known as SARS-Cov-2, has caused pandemic with almost 235 M cases, over 4.8 M deaths since 2019 and significant impact on socio-economics globally. Although Biomedical research worldwide and in Vietnam has been seriously impacted in the current pandemic, the “Life Science Links” team, aiming to advance the biological research in Vietnam and continuing the extremely successful annual-scientific meeting chain in Quy Nhon, Binh Dinh since 2017, is pleasure to announce that RENCONTRES de QUY NHON IV: BIOLOGY CONFERENCE 2021 will be held at the International Center for Interdisciplinary Science and Education (ICISE), Quy Nhon, Binh Dinh, on December 13-15, 2021 (providing that the pandemic situation and the related regulations will allow this).

The meeting aims to promote scientific exchange and collaboration for Young Vietnamese scientists working in fundamental and applied academic research, industry, and regulatory fields of life science. We believe that scientific meeting is essential opportunity and a professional environment to maintain the existing and initiate new multidisciplinary collaborative networks.

We cordially invite you to join RENCONTRES de QUY NHON IV: BIOLOGY CONFERENCE 2021 and will be delighted to welcome you to Quy Nhon!

Conference Themes: 

  1. The evolution of Coronavirus. Updating on the Variants of SARS-CoV-2

  2. Bio-pharma-medical research and development on bioactive compounds and vaccines targeting Covid-19 and other related diseases. The global visions and case study in Vietnam.

  3. Search for molecular markers associated with different variants of viruses.

  4. Updating on SARS-CoV-2 infected patients: disease severity on various groups of patients.

  5. Antimicrobial resistance in human and animal, including that in parasitology.

The conference will take advantage of the global experiences in bioactive compounds and vaccine technology investigations to cure the emerging threats of public health. Participants will have the opportunity to work together, exchange, and learn experiences from various senior scientists, and to build multidisciplinary scientific collaboration. They will also have opportunities to approach information about funding sources from different research funders, including local and government, public and private sectors.

Conference format: The conference will use a range of formats: Keynote speaker presentations in the plenary session, poster exhibitions, oral presentations in the parallel sessions, exhibitions and training courses from private companies and enterprises operating in the fields of Biomedicine and Pharmacy, open roundtable discussions and excursions which will offer opportunity for you to further networking and discover the beauty of Quy Nhon.
