About Academia


    Getting There










The Congress is a common platform for our staff to showcase their research achievements and share knowledge on the recent advances in healthcare. The number of participants has grown, and the infrastructure for the Congress has also improved. Academia is a good place for this meeting because all the rooms are co-located. You can choose the lectures that you want and go from one room to another.
