Mr. Tang Daiwei, a Chinese young scientist stood-out from a science talents search program-Awarding Program for Future Scientists (APFS) hosted by China Association for Science and Technology (CAST) is attending the ongoing Stockholm International Youth Science Seminar (SIYSS).
During the weeklong event, Tang Daiwei along with 25 participants from 19 countries will be given the chance to touch in scientific activities and lectures, and meet Nobel Laureates in the annual Nobel week in December. Moreover Swedish science and technology as well as Swedish culture and customs will be introduced to these young scientists.
The main event of SIYSS is a big seminar where the participants present their research to the world. Mr. Tang attends the seminar with his own research focusing on Biology and his project name is “Computational Profiling of Tumor Microenvironment from Gene Expression Data”. The correlation between his research and this year’s Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine is impressive.
SIYSS dates as far back as 1976 and is organized by the Swedish Federation of Young Scientists. The program aims to promote international understanding and friendship, bring together young people from all over the world. Every year CYSC is invited to select one or two Chinese young scientists to attend SIYSS and the Chinese participants usually are selected from China Adolescents Science and Technology Innovation Contest (CASTIC), APFS, Sciences Olympiad of China and other science education programs of CAST.
