Dear Colleagues

On behalf of the Organizing Committee I am delighted to introduce you to the 1st International Student Congress of Health Sciences that will be held in Almaty, Kazakhstan  on 30-31st March  2018 under the auspices of the Department of Molecular Biology and Medical Genetics at KazNMU.

Congress program will consist of outstanding lectures, including keynote talks, plenary sessions, applied workshop, oral & poster presentations & exhibition.

In our 1st International Student congress the main topic is CONNECTING HEALTH SCIENCES, we try to bring together young motivated students, scientists and academics from all different fields. We want to connect the different groups as early as possible to exchange views, create a network and get to know the way of thinking and working.

Health Sciences Congress will provide the latest novel applications in molecular mechanisms and therapeutic developments. It will also offer new ideas and approaches for research and offer the opportunity for scientists to collaborate with the experts in this field. Our panel of distinguished speakers will present their recent discoveries and most updated scientific information, which will make for a very exciting and rewarding conference to attend.

The congress is for bio-medical students and motivated high school students who are interested in research and science. Students may be either presenting or non-presenting participants. If a participant wants to present their research, they are required to submit their abstract before hand. A strict selection procedure takes place and only the best students are invited to present their research at the congress.

When accepted, participants are divided into different session in which they present their research. This may be either through a poster presentation, or an oral presentation where students can present their research by means of a slideshow presentation. In both sessions other students and professionals listen and discuss the research. Thirdly, there is a plenary session: the 15 best abstracts will be presented in the primary lecture Honorary Hall of the University.

The congress also holds pre-course workshop on Cell Culture and Bioinformatics tools. Besides that 1st International student congress of health sciences, Almaty offers keynote lectures from renowned scientist presenting their research to the participants.

We look forward to welcoming you and spending valuable time in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
