The series of lectures on “Medicine and Health” in Chuangxingang (Inovation Harbor) focus on the academic frontiers and the hot issues in the field of medicine and health. The lectures will help to develop New Medical Discipline, advocate the cross-cooperation among multi-disciplinary scientists, and meliorate the collaboration research on medical and healthy problems by different regions. In addition, the lecturers will give the consideration that the integrity and novelty should combine with the conciseness and popularity Thus students and teachers with diverse backgrounds from various disciplines will obtain more understanding and new insights into cutting-edge medicine and health. This active communication between the teachers as well as the students and the peoples from all walks of life in the country and even the world, will promote the scientific and technological innovation and stimulate academic creation and development.
