From Oct. 30th, the 17th International Biophysise Congress goes well in China National Convention Center, and will end up by tomorrow. Although rare topics are related with my direction, talks which I managed to listen still strongly inspired me. Here is my notes from this event.
 
1. About 300 speakers from the globe distributed into 30 sessions, 3 satellite meetings and 8 plenaty lectures, it makes a efficent participant can only cover approx 10% talks in the whole. If English is a barrier, one need to veiw abstracts in advance, On this point, I personally believe most of the participants obtain appropriate English capacity on their own expertises.
 
2. Nobel laureates Thomas Steitz, Venkatraman Ramakrishnan (Chemisty 2009) and John Walker (Chemistry 2007) attended and gave lectures here. As to those giants, I admire what they did on ATP synthase and structure basis of ribosome RNA on which antibiotics exert effects. But they just like majority of scientists who focus on their interests and then move on. I mean, unlike Einstein and Hawking who shown extremely different with their contemporary physicists, those there just like supervisors or well-known scholars runing their research groups, and  they don't have bureaucratic manners which can be found on asian big heads. I suddenly recalled Youyou Tu, same stroy, the prise is awarded on one's contribution, not how great and productive of the work in ones career. So they accepted the prises and keep going on their interests.
 
3. Well known scholars from all over the world present their current achievements here, I took notes on my booklet but which I may never view again. Patricia Bozza from Bazil talked about her discoveries on lipid droplets on inflammatory diseases, gave a new approach on immume signalling pathway research. Shawn Li from Canada shown the binding site diversity of protein tyrosine kinases SH2 and also, its binding manner. Peng Li form Tsinghua discussed her finding in lipid Droplet fusion which really confused me. Qi Zeng from Singapore presented her 10 years work on intracellular targeting Abs in tumor eradication, whose outcomes are for sure fantastic. Hartmut Luecke from UC reported the structure of the acid-activated urea transporter from the human pathogen Helicobacter pylori, this lecture killed me cause I knew nothing about those techniques. Christopher Garcia from Howard Hughes gave us a basic understanding on the stucture of TCRs and their germline spicificity, truely a good lecture. Too many...
 
4. Asking questions should be formly a part of a scientific report not only to query the author's conclusion, which cannot be concluded perfectly, but also to show the respect to him (her). Participants exhibited high enthusiam in asking and debating along with their respects to the speakers, it shows a very good premonition that our academic atmosphere will be better in the near future.
