MCCS-Asia

The MCCS is an international organization focused on fostering exchanges in the field of Molecular and Cellular Cognition.

Molecular and Cellular Cognition Society - Asia 2017 Meeting

1-3 August 2017

Singapore

The MCCS is an international organization focused on fostering exchanges in the field of Molecular and Cellular Cognition, with headquarters in North America, and major branches in Asia and Europe. This symposium will be the first MCCS- Asia meeting to be held in Singapore.

The aim of the conference is to provide a platform for prominent experts from both overseas (USA, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Japan, South Korea, China, India, Israel and Australia), and local institutions including NUS (National University of Singapore), NTU (Nanyang Technological University), TLL (Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory), NNI (National Neuroscience Institute), IMCB (Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biology), Duke-NUS and GIS (Genomic Institute of Singapore) to discuss and share the latest developments in molecular, cellular and cognitive aspects of memory and memory disorders.

 Aligning with the Singapore government’s RIE2020 (Research Innovation Enterprise 2020) plan, the symposium focuses on ageing, neurological disorders and dementia. Together, we hope to invigorate interest in biomedical research in Singapore and to feature NUS as a center of excellence for neuroscience research. Implicitly, we aim to motivate our students and research staff towards undertaking research and development careers and ultimately augment the knowledge-based economy in Singapore.
