6th International Symposium on Plasma Biosciences

ISPB 2016

August 21-26, 2016
BEXCO, Busan, Republic of Korea

I am very happy to open the “6th International Symposium on Plasma Biosciences (ISPB 2016)” at Bexco, Busan, during 6 days from August 21-26, 2016. Scientists have been looking for possibilities of applying atmospheric pressure non-thermal biocompatible plasma (hereafter bioplasma) to cells and tissues with the desire of achieving new plasma medicines during the last 10-15 years. Up to now, it is not yet clear and insufficient for basic mechanisms of bioplasma interactions with biological fluids, micro-organisms and cancer cells for human healthcare. This international symposium has been prepared to overcome this barrier by the formation of systematic global networking at the “Plasma Bioscience Research Center (PBRC), which is a National Advanced Center of Excellency for convergence sciences, in Kwangwoon University, Seoul, Korea.

This ‘ISPB 2016’ international symposium covers nearly all aspects and overview of fundamental interactions of bioplasma with biological fluids, micro-organisms and cancer cells along with their medical applications for human healthcare. Systematic developments for this international conference could lead to a world class level of plasma biosciences and medicines with highly-organized communication networks. Scientific results reported here may also lead to a great contribution to much better understanding of the interaction between bioplasma and living systems, which will result in a significant contribution to plasma medicines.

More than 100 important papers on these various topics will be presented, and more than 200 scientists are expected to participate in this ‘ISPB 2016’ from USA, Japan, China, Taiwan, UK, Australia, Thailand, India, Germany, France, Czech Republic and Korea. I would like to acknowledge the contributions of all cooperative scientists and organizations, and also to all participants from various countries.

I look forward to seeing you soon in Busan.

Sincerely yours,

Prof. Eun Ha Choi
Chair, ISPB 2016
Co-Chair, Organizing Committee of IVC-20
