Dear Colleagues and Friends,


It is my great pleasure to announce the 8th Mind-Body Interface (MBI) International Symposium is to be held at China Medical University (Taichung, Taiwan) on Oct. 26-28, 2018. The main theme this year is “From Molecule to Mind:Bridging the Gap between Bench and Bedside in Neuroscience”.



Organized annually by Mind-Body Interface Lab (MBI-Lab) and Taiwanese Society for Nutritional Psychiatry Research (TSNPR), we are delighted to co-chair this three-day international conference with ISBS Regional Asian Meeting and PNIRSAsia-Pacific Symposium this year.



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. With the great works from bench to bedside, breakthroughs have been made to reveal complex interactions among immunity, inflammation and brain disorders. Compelling evidences have supported the crucial role of nutrition, underlying the cause of major depression disorders. We are really excited to be at the cutting edge of neuroscience research.



The symposium is featured with a broad range of topics, including immunology, metabolic processes and molecular science, psychopharmacology, psychology, the brain-gut-microbe axis as well as biological processes and factors underlying the links between diet, nutrition and mental health from the perspective of Western medicine and Chinese medicine. Furthermore, there will be a strong focus on neuroimaging, personalized medicine, lifestyle intervention, health promotion and disease management, and epidemiology, population studies and big data application in mental health.



With the inspiration, intimate interaction and our great hospitality during the conference, the 8th MBI Int'l Symposium is guaranteed to be a wonderful event like it has been in the previous years. We look forward to greeting biomedical researchers, psychiatrists, psychologists, dietitians, and other health professionals worrldwide in Taichung this October.





Sincerely yours,



Kuan-Pin Su, M.D., Ph.D.
