Canada-China Symposium on Atherothrombosis, Diabetes and Obesity

Simon Fraser University Harbour Centre

The second Canada-China Symposium on Atherothrombosis, Diabetes and Obesity is being held at Simon Fraser University Harbour Centre on July 20-21, 2013. The symposium will appeal to academics and trainees interested in the biology of atherothrombosis, diabetes and obesity. Due to the popularity of the first China-Canada Symposium held in Beijing in the Fall of 2011, this second event is intended to continue to enhance communication and further collaboration among Canadian and Chinese researchers and trainees. This will be a great opportunity to network with like-minded researchers from both countries in an intimate setting. Dr. Scott Lear, BCATPR lead, will be helping to organize this event.
