I feel honoured to invite you to attend the 5 Indo-Japan International Symposium on “Innovative Molecular Approaches in Global Health Research” during September 20-22, 2010 at Biyani Girls College, University of Rajasthan, Jaipur (INDIA).

In countries where diseases, which are treatable in developed countries, often become deadly mainly because of lack of diagnostic tools to identify disease at hand and thus there is a high dependence upon the state for health care. This symposium will provide meaningful exchange of ideas dealing with development of point-of-care diagnostics, led by scientists engaged in research and primary care physicians involved with patient care. Innovative molecular diagnostics tools with simple operation, high quality and affordable range will be the central focus of this symposium for global health care. Discussion on these issues by renowned scientists will assure that this symposium will be informative and interesting as well as will be useful to practice physicians who can apply this knowledge in a clinical setting. This symposium is also aimed to understand the current trends towards information medicine and biotechnological medicine and thus will provide relevant data for the societal introduction of advanced technology into the health care system.

We welcome you and look forward personally and professionally satisfying meeting at the historical, cultural, pink city Jaipur.

Manish Biyani, Ph.D.
