Dear Friends,

After working hard for the past 3 months, we have now put together a vibrant, exciting and embracing Scientific Programme, in collaboration with many regional and national societies, including the Asia Pacific Society for Immunodeficiencies, ROTA Council, Japan Pediatric Society, as well as many local paediatric societies.

The breadth and depth of the programme is truly amazing, reflecting the spirit of our slogan “From Genes to Communities – Excellence in Child Health” for this 13th Congress of Asian Society for Pediatric Research.  There will be a spread of emphasis in our programme connecting genetics to clinical practice, individual patients to entire communities, personalized medicine to global health policy, practice issues in less resourced environment to the most technologically advanced interventions.  The programme reflects the enormous diversity of our continent, which demands us to come up with a creative approach, to have a balance.

We have now invited more than 90 speakers to deliver over 110 lectures in plenary sessions and concurrent symposia.  Moreover, there will be 4 pre- and post-Congress Workshops/School focusing on stem cell transplant, rotavirus vaccine, bioinformatics, and primary immunodeficiencies respectively.  Of course there will be poster and oral presentations, with the award winning Best Abstracts presented on the last day of the programme.  We need your support, and please register now and submit your abstracts, the deadline has been extended until the 7th July.

We shall continuously improve our logistics in ensuring a most successful and rewarding experience for our speakers and delegates.  Please come to join hands with us in making this a great Congress.

Dear Friends,

Our Hong Kong College of Paediatricians has been given the honor to host the 13th Congress of the Asian Society for Pediatric Research (ASPR) from October 6th to 8th 2017.

We are now planning an exciting scientific programme for promoting research across disciplines and countries, in order to achieve Excellence in Child Health.  Therefore the programme shall be emphasizing on building up the research interest, capacity and networking in Asia, which is the long-term goal of the Asian Society for Pediatric Research right from the beginning of her inception back in 2005.  We realize this goal will need perseverance and collaborative spirit among nations, regions, and disciplines to be realized.

For the ASPR 2017 Congress, we will invite colleagues from different Asian countries and regions to come together to design focused symposia, clinicians and scientists to present their research findings as well as organize pre- and post-Congress Workshops to promote research capacity and education.

We shall constantly update the webpage to inform you how the scientific programme is being developed.  Please inform us how you would wish the programme be developed in the next few months.

As President of the Hong Kong College of Paediatricians and the Asian Society for Pediatric Research, I sincerely invite you to come to the ASPR 2017 Congress to promote Excellence in Child Health.  The Organizing Committee chaired by Professor Godfrey Chi-fung CHAN is committed to ensure great success of the Congress.  Please mark the dates in your diary and Hong Kong welcomes you!
