On December 19-22, Westlake University and the Chinese Biological Investigators Society ("CBIS") will jointly launch an "academic marathon" - the 13th Chinese Biological Investigators Society 2022 biennial meeting. With the theme "Enhancing and Reconnecting Biological Research in the Post-Pandemic Era", this conference will be held simultaneously in Hangzhou, China and Las Vegas, USA.


The biennial meeting adopts a combination of online and offline forms, and invites experts and scholars in the field of life sciences from around the world, bringing together more than 100 special academic reports, including 39 reports in Hangzhou, discussing the latest developments in the field of life sciences, and exploring and revealing life phenomena and the essence of life.

The CBIS was founded in 1998 by Ray Wu, an outstanding Chinese scientist in the field of life sciences, at the University of California, Los Angeles. It is the responsibility of CBIS to cooperate and promote the development and progress of life sciences, and cultivate young scientists.


The society is composed of more than 1,000 Chinese and foreign academicians, as well as well-known experts and scholars from home and abroad. Most of them have studied in the United States since the 1980s and obtained doctoral degrees. They are actively promoting the development of China's life sciences by returning to China to serve. The CBIS meetings are held every two years, providing a high-level platform of interactions and collaborations for biologists worldwide in the life science field.
