Taipei. June 14, 2009. The 12th SCBA International Symposium started today. The registration started at 10 AM with many eager participants starting to register for the meeting. The registration package came with detailed schedule booklet, abstract book, a handy carrying bag and numerous goodies. There were 3 early sessions with diverse topics, including environmental carcinogenesis and cancer prevention, new drug development and therapeutics, and genomic medicine, Y chromosome, germ cell and gonad development. The attendance was reasonably good, considering this is a Sunday holiday.
An informal reception followed the conclusion of the sessions with numerous delicious dishes and drinks. An exciting karaoke session followed the dinner with important participants, among others. Everyone was happy and was looking forwards to the official opening session the next morning.
