On behalf of the International Advisory Committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to attend the 12th International Symposium on Applied Bioinorganic Chemistry (ISABC12), taking place in Guangzhou, China on 3rd – 6th December, 2013.

The ISABC was initiated in 1990. As serial conference, it was held every two years. The past eleven symposiums have been held successfully in nine countries since 1990. Sun Yat-sen University (SYSU, then called Zhongshan University) hosted the Conference in 1992. We are honored that this event comes back to SYSU after two decades. SYSU is one of the leading comprehensive multi-disciplinary universities of China and is prestigious with fine traditions in teaching and learning. The host city Guangzhou, also known historically as Canton, is the center of southern China and the emblematic city of Lingnan Culture with a history of over 2 000 years as well as the epitome of China's modernization. It is renowned for the pleasant climate, a myriad of cultural heritages and the gastronomy. The scheduled social and cultural events of this symposium will offer you an excellent opportunity to experience the Traditional Culture of Southern China and the modern townscape feature.

ISABC12 is intended to bring together innovative academics and experts in the field of Applied Bioinorganic Chemistry. The following topics will be covered: (i) Metals in medicine, diagnosis, and therapy, (ii) Metalloproteins and diseases, (iii) Bio-inspired metal complexes, (iv) Metal transport and metabolism, (v) Metal regulation on structures and functions of genes, (vi) Bioinorganic chemistry and nanotechnology, (vii) Biomineralization and related applications, (viii) Metal ion interactions with nucleic acids and related topics, (ix) Environmental and toxicological aspects of metal ions, (x) Other hot topics. We believe that your participation will bring fresh thoughts into the field of Applied Bioinorganic Chemistry.
We look forward very much to welcoming you to Guangzhou in December 2013.
