Chemistry advancing health


Modern scientific research has become very interdisciplinary, and experts with different backgrounds work together to face universal challenges. One such topic is human health and a great variety of chemists are working together towards a better understanding of the underlying biological processes as well as developing better diagnostics and treatments. The Elsevier Chemistry Connect China Tour – Chemistry Advancing Health in collaboration with Shanghai University [***or Tsinghua University***] is designed to provide you with an overview and inspiration from the various contributions chemists have made to human health. The talks will cover the investigation of diseases, generation of drugs and the monitoring of human health. The program invites you to discuss and network with colleagues interested in related areas of your research to further China’s leading role in this interdisciplinary research topic.
