Dear colleagues,


On behalf of the organizing committee of the 8th Xiamen Winter Symposium, we would like to invite you to attend our conference. The theme is “Nuclear Receptors: From Structure to Disease”.  The meeting will be held at the new Xiang-An Campus, Xiamen University, Xiamen,China from December 8th to 11th of 2017.


Nuclear receptors play important roles in development, homeostasis, and disease, providing potential targets for disease treatment. This Symposium focuses on the latest progress in identifying the structure and function of nuclear receptors/coregulators, unraveling the molecular mechanisms of disease-related genes, screening of potential therapeutic drugs and the possible application of these recent achievements in translational and regenerative medicine research. We hope you will take this golden opportunity to present your latest exciting research results, meet colleagues from all over the world, and visit Xiaman, the most beautiful and friendly coastal city in China.


We are sure that this will be a very enjoyable and rewarding meeting, and we hope that you will be able to come. We look forward to seeing you in Xiamen in 2017! If you have any other enquiry, please write to Ms. Denghong Xu at xws@xmu.edu.cn
