Dear Colleagues and Friends,
It is my privilege to invite you to attend the 7th Mind-Body Interface (MBI) International Symposium, held at China Medical University, Taichung, Taiwan on Nov. 3 & 4, 2017.
The MBI Int'l Symposium has been vigorously promoting a global agenda of translational medicine by encouraging interdisciplinary research, and integrating biomedical discovery and development focused on patients, to provide better care and service in the field of mental health. This year, the main theme is From Molecule to Mind: Bridging the Gap between Research and Practice in Mental Health. The symposium will comprise keynote speech, plenary sessions from international researchers and clinician worldwide, and poster sessions. Bursaries for overseas participants are provided. Abstract for oral and poster presentations, as well as symposium sessions, are welcome. Submission deadline is July 15, 2017.
With the emerging and compelling evidence for nutrition as a crucial factor in the high prevalence and incidence of mental disorders, it is suggested that diet is as important to neuroscience as it is to other fields of medicine. This year, the symposium is featured with a broad spectrum of research, including basic science and the biological processes and factors underlying the links between diet, nutrition and mental health, including immunology, metabolic processes and molecular science as well as the brain-gut-microbe axis. Furthermore, there will be a strong focus on neuroimaging, personalized medicine, lifestyle intervention, health promotion and disease management, and epidemiology and population studies in mental health for different age groups.
Finally, we are delighted to welcome our academic partners to actively take part in this symposium, including International Stress and Behavior Society (ISBS), International Society for Omega-3 Research (ISOR), Japan Society for Lipid Nutrition (JSLN) and Psychoneuroimmunology Research Society (PNIRS-Asia Pacific). With the inspiration, intimate interaction and our great hospitality during the conference, the 7th MBI Int'l Symposium is guaranteed to be a wonderful event like it has been in the previous years. We look forward to greeting a group of multidisciplinary participants, including biomedical researchers, psychiatrists, psychologists, dietitians, and other health professionals in Taichung, Taiwan in November.

Chairman, 7th MBI Int'l Symposium
