Korea셲 Hallym University Medical Center (HUMC) is hosting the 11th Hallym-Columbia-Weill Cornell-NYP Symposium at New York Academy of Sciences in New York City on October 22, 2014, in conjunction with Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, Weill Cornell Medical College and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. Under the theme of 쏛dvances in Translational Neuroscience Symposium, the symposium will bring together the world셲 leading scientists and physicians to provide cutting-edge findings in neurodegenerative diseases and share their research experiences. This is the second occasion that HUMC is having a neuroscience symposium in New York since it successfully held the 5th Hallym-Columbia-Weill Cornell-NYP Symposium themed 쏯eurodegenerative Diseases: Genetics, Biological and Vascular Mechanisms in 2007. Among the Hallym dignitaries who will participate in the symposium are Dr. Dai-Won Yoon, Chairman of Ilsong Educational Foundation, Dr. Hae-Ran Lee, President of Hallym University Medical Center, and Dr. Yong-Sun Kim, Executive Vice President for Health & Biomedical Sciences at Hallym University. Hallym셲 collaboration with the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, Weill Cornell Medical College and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital goes back to the year 2004 when Hallym signed an international affiliation agreement Columbia University College of Physicians to promote exchanges of professors and students, collaborative research and joint academic meetings. Since then, the institutions have collaborated on a series of annual symposium, with this year being the eleventh. The ten previous annual conferences have addressed a wide array of medical issues including geriatric medicine, obesity and metabolic syndrome, innovative surgery and medicine, pediatrics, neurodegenerative diseases, arthroplasty and spine surgery, cardiovascular diseases, pulmonary diseases, gastrointestinal cancer and prematurity. The specific programs of the 11th symposium including speakers and topics are as follows: 뼚Session 11. Optical Analysis of Neurotransmission in Basal Ganglia (David L.
