Track 01: Nutrition and Health

In delivering healthier and more nutritious food, the food safety plays a prominent role in the society. Issues around microbial, artificial and chemical contamination in the production, authenticity and source of origin must be considered when developing the strategy in the production processes to make existing diets safer and healthier. The important role of food and nutrition in public health is being increasingly recognised as crucial for its potential impact on health-related quality of life and economics, both at the societal and individual levels. The main aim lies in supporting world-class research which will advance understanding the ways in which safe and healthy foods can be sustainably generated, and how nutrients, foods and whole diets connect with human body to promote health.

Track 02: Women’s Healthcare

Women’s health differs from those of men by unique biological, social and behavioural conditions. Research has been carried out in large scale clinical trials and advancements in health studies is also done in the developed countries. The leading death rates in women include cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, PCOS, menopause, etc. The major threat in the developing countries is the maternal deaths which are continuously increasingly due to poor health. Young women and adolescents face the risks that include STIs, pregnancy and unsafe abortion, while older women are at risk of neurogenetic diseases.

Track 03: Nano Medicine and Healthcare

Nano medicine uses nano-sized tools for the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease for the increased understanding of the diseases where the ultimate goal lies in improving the quality of life. The drug delivery system with the nanoparticles focuses mainly in developing the tumor targeting drugs and the corresponding polymers to be used and the major challenges include biodegradability and biocompatibility of the drug .The fields in the nanomedicine is growing widely, but in the end multi-phase clinical trials are very demanding and only a few Nano drug candidates successfully pass regulatory authority requirements.  The biomedical scientists, chemists and biophysicists in the future may favour the arrival of more Nano engineered drugs on the market with the interdisciplinary collaboration among them.

Track 04: Mental and Physical Health

The physical and mental health of the human being should be maintained in a balanced way where the poor physical health can lead to mental health problems and vice-versa. The lifestyle factors which can affect both the physical health and mental health involve exercise, diet, smoking, depression etc. There are also other problems which include obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high blood glucose levels leading to heart disease, diabetes and other illness. Indigenous system of medicine is also widely practised among the developing countries which definitely play a major role in curing the chronic diseases and several infections.

Track 05: Chronic Diseases and Healthcare

The lives of far too many people in the world are being destroyed and cut short by chronic diseases such as cancer, asthma, diabetes, epilepsy and stroke, etc. which tend to occur at a very early age. Chronic diseases are responsible for 7 of 10 deaths each year, and the treatment accounts for most of the nation’s health care costs and is a very serious situation for the health societies and economies. Researches on the emphasis of chronic diseases with models have been done with significant implications for diagnosis and treatment.

Track 06: Medical Laboratory Technology and Healthcare

Medical laboratory technology play a significant role by introducing the customs for lab tests on blood, body fluids, cells and tissues by various advancements in technologies which makes the interpretation of the diseases  much easier. The knowledge and expertise of the MLT contributes to innovation in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and medical conditions. Biomedical engineering combines the design of engineering with medical sciences to advance health treatment and surgical purposes. Bioinformatics also plays a major role in analysing the biological data mainly DNA, RNA and protein sequences. Medical technology is indispensable for people's health and higher quality of life and improves economy.

Track 07: Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare

The medical industry provides a vast range of healthcare services, manufacturing medical equipments and developing pharmaceuticals which also include the designing of drugs and the delivery system according to the human health. The Patent system plays a crucial role where every day new life saving drugs is introduced into the market and they are regulated by the pharmaceutical sector by the patent laws. Quality Assurance and control has a wide impact over the pharmaceutical products in order to meet the standards for the recommended use. Pharmacogenomics is the new emerging technology where the therapeutic drugs are combined with the genetics in order to meet the complex diseases.

Track 08: Nursing and Healthcare

Nursing mainly focuses on the protection, optimization  and balancing of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, facilitation of healing, and aiding the patients through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations. Nursing and health care deals with various aspects such as primary health, secondary health care etc..
