CABA Texas Chapter

Chinese-American Biomedical Association (CABA), a 501(C)(3) non-profit professional organization based in Massachusetts since 2007, today announced the launch of its first chapter outside Massachusetts. The first chapter, named CABA-Texas (or CABA-TX), will be based in Houston, Texas.


美中生物医药协会(CABA),这个2007年成立于马萨诸塞州的501(C)(3)非营利专业组织,今天正式宣布在德克萨斯州的休斯敦成立分会。分会名为CABA-Texas(或CABA-TX),这也是CABA在马萨诸塞州之外的第一个分会。


CABA is committed to promoting public awareness of advancement in life sciences and the biopharmaceutical industry and strives to build a platform that facilitates scientific, professional, and cultural interactions in the fields of life sciences, global biomedical innovations and biomedical product development. Similar to Massachusetts, Texas is home to a number of world-class academic and medical institutions and represents a major forefront in life science and biomedical innovation. With a large number of biomedical scientists and professionals in the Houston, Dallas, and Austin areas, CABA-TX endeavors to become a nucleus for those who share our vision and values.


CABA致力于提高公众对生命科学和生物制药行业发展的认识,并努力建立一个在生命科学、全球生物医学创新以及生物医学产品开发领域的科学以及专业和多元文化交互作用的平台。与马萨诸塞州类似,德克萨斯州拥有多个世界级的学术和医疗机构,代表着生命科学和生物医学创新的重要前沿。随着大量生物医学科学家和专业人士在休斯敦、达拉斯和奥斯汀地区,CABA-TX将努力成为那些和我们有相同愿景和价值观的专业人士的枢纽。



CABA-TX will be led by Xiaotong Song, Ph.D.(center in the picture), a researcher-turned-entrepreneur, who will serve as the chapter’s inaugural President. A team of community leaders with diverse background, experience and expertise will serve on the Executive Committee of CABA-TX. 


CABA-TX将由学术型企业家宋晓彤博士领导(上图左六),他将担任该分会的首任会长。同时,CABA-TX的执行委员会成员具有丰富背景、经验和专业知识。


CABA organizes events and programs that promote advancement in life sciences and commercialization of innovative diagnostics and the rapeutics. CABA also organizes and participates in activities that facilitate networking and interactions among scientists, professionals, and entrepreneurs from academia and the biomedical and pharmaceutical industry. As the majority of its members are scientists and professionals with Chinese heritage, CABA endeavors to provide a platform for its members to develop and advance their careers in the pharmaceutical and biomedical industry and to serve as a bridge between the pharmaceutical and biomedical industries across the Pacific. To fulfill these goals, CABA organizes scientific and business symposia, conferences, workshops, career fairs, as well as social events to promote networking and communication among its members.


CABA所组织的系列活动和会议旨在促进生命科学的进步、创新诊断和治疗方案的商业化。 CABA也会组织或参与促进科学家、专业人士和来自学术界、生物医药以及制药行业的企业家之间的社交和互动的活动。由于其大多数会员是具有中国背景的科学家和专业人士,CABA努力为他们提供一个平台,以发展和推进他们在制药和生物医学行业的职业生涯,并成为跨越太平洋的制药和生物医学工业之间的桥梁。为了实现这些目标,CABA组织科技和商业研讨会、会议、招聘会以及社交活动等,以促进其成员之间的社会交流和沟通。


CABA is a volunteer-operated society and relies on members to contribute their time and effort to build the organization. We also rely on corporate members and sponsors to raise funds to support our activities. We value integrity, honesty, professionalism, community service, scientific excellence, responsibility and accountability. We invite you to explore our organization and hope that you share our values and vision and are interested in becoming a member, devoting your time or efforts, or sponsoring CABA activities.
