Bio Sciences and Health
Bio Sciences and Health groups aim to bring together Korean and European scientists working in various fields of Bio Sciences and Heath-related research, encourage communication, and strengthen the global networks. We also encourage establishing the global networks and developing joint research projects between Korea and Europe. The sessions will be organized in different categories as listed below: Poster presentation Oral presentations This year, we co-organize 1 keynote and 6 oral presentation sessions with Korean Academy of Science and Technology (KAST) and 2 oral presentation sessions with IBS Center for Plant Aging Research. The sessions with KAST will cover various fields in Science and Technology, under the common topic of “Convergence Science and Technology for Human Heath” as following: - Keynote session: “Convergence Science and Technology for Human Health” - Talk sessions: o Biomedical science and technology o Innovations in drug discovery o Biophysics and nano bioscience o Novel Therapeutics and Chemical Biology o Emerging and challenging human diseases o Information and data science for human health The sessions with IBS Center for Plant Aging Research will focus on "Comparative study of aging and death processes across species" as following: o Aging Mechanisms ; comparative aspects I (STEPI/IBS Forum) o Aging Mechanisms ; comparative aspects II (STEPI/IBS Forum)

Synopsis
Aging followed by death is a universal and inevitable fate in most organisms including humans. Yet, there remain many significant questions. Each species exhibits its own characteristic life history of aging and death. Comparative study of aging and death processes across species will provide important insight into general and species-specific mechanisms of this fundamental life history strategy and into understanding and curing aging of human species. For this purpose, scientists from Sweden and Korea will be presenting aging mechanisms in broad spectrum of species including plants, invertebrates, vertebrates, and human. This session should not only provide the state-of-art status of aging mechanisms in each species but also become a forum to compare the aging mechanisms from a broad perspectives and to foster collaborative researches among the aging scientists from two countries. Session I will be led by speakers and students from Center for Plant Aging Research, Institute for Basic Science and DGIST. There will be four speakers, and each of them will deliver a 25-minute talk.

Synopsis
Korean medicine (KM) is the traditional medicine practices that developed in Korea. Although influenced by ancient Chinese medicine, Korean medicine developed its unique diagnostic and treatment features. Also, its traditional herbal medicine is being loved by a lot of people until now. Korea Institute of Oriental Medicine (KIOM), the government-funded research institute on KM, conducts various kinds of research projects on herbal medicine, acupuncture, medical devices, etc. utilizing cutting-edge technology. Recently, complementary & alternative medicine is drawing global attention as a supplement or substitute for Western medicine including Europe. Especially, herbal medicine shows its efficacy for treating modern diseases such as fatty liver, acute fatigue, etc. that decreases the quality of our lives. As the interest in complementary & alternative medicine increases, evidence-based research on it becomes more important. Therefore, it would be meaningful to share the remarkable research result on herbal medicine conducted at KIOM. Also, finding a way of cooperation and collaboration between European countries and Korea would be the most expecting result from this forum.

Synopsis
Korean medicine (KM) is the traditional medicine practices that developed in Korea. Although influenced by ancient Chinese medicine, Korean medicine developed its unique diagnostic and treatment features such as Sasang Constitutional Medicine (SCM), Sa-am, Tae-guk and Hand Acupuncture. Korea Institute of Oriental Medicine (KIOM), the government-funded research institute on KM, conducts various kinds of research projects on herbal medicine, acupuncture, medical devices, etc. utilizing cutting-edge technology. Recently, complementary & alternative medicine is drawing global attention as a supplement or substitute for Western medicine including Europe. A lot of patients prefer acupuncture treatment for some diseases such as pain in the neck, spine, or legs or even internal diseases for effectiveness and safety. As the interest in complementary & alternative medicine increases, evidence-based research on it becomes more important. Therefore, it would be meaningful to share the remarkable research result on acupuncture conducted at KIOM. Also, finding a way of cooperation and collaboration between European countries and Korea would be the most expecting result from this forum.
