Details

The Future Science Prize is the first world-class, privately sponsored science prize in China.  Since 2016, a set of annual awards were bestowed in three categories: life science, physical science, mathematics and computer science, in recognition of high-impact scientific advances in the Greater China region. The Future Science Prize ceremony is held annually in Beijing, China to recognize the scientists who have contributed significantly to the scientific community as well as to all of humanity. The concurrently held science forum and symposium invites scientists from all over the world to share scientific development on the cutting-edge and to explore interdisciplinary and innovative academic insights; it is the only high-end, multi-disciplinary international scientific conference held in China.


In 2019, the Future Forum introduces a Steering Committee, composed of well-known experts from home and abroad, to guide the topics of discussion during the conference; the Program Committee, a subcommittee of said committee, is responsible for setting the agenda and inviting domestic and foreign guests to ensure the high level and extensive global perspective of the conference. Ding Hong, from the Institute of Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Zhang Xiaodong of the Ohio State University serve as co-chairs of the Program Committee, jointly proposing and grandly launching the 2019 Future Science Prize Week.


We cordially invite nearly a hundred esteemed scientists, business leaders, and artists with outstanding influences and diverse perspectives to join us for an eventful week filled with cross-border dialogues. During the week, a number of public events will be held, including the Future Science Prize Forum,the Future Science Prize Symposium,the Future Science Prize Ceremony, and lectures given by the prize winners. We are also excited to announce that the prize winners and globally-renowned artists will jointly present an exhibition themed, “Evolution of Everything:Scientific View and Artistic View”. 


As the most influential science award in Greater China today, we first and foremost hope to use the Future Science Prize to celebrate the scientists, whose achievements in scientific fields demand more considerable attention from the public that has never felt more urgent to become more informed; and if we may, we wish to not only have an impact on the present but, more importantly, on the next generation whose future is now and whose world is a fast-changing place with so much at stake.

He moved to Stanford as an Assistant Professor in November 2011. Since beginning his lab, he has been named a Rita Allen Foundation Young Scholar, an Ellison Foundation Young Scholar in Aging (declined), a Baxter Foundation Scholar, and a Chan-Zuckerberg Investigator. His highly interdisciplinary research links molecular biology, computer science, bioengineering, and genomics a to understand how the physical state of the human genome controls gene regulation and biological state. Efforts in his lab are split between building new tools to leverage the power of high-throughput sequencing and cutting-edge microscopies, and bringing these new technologies to bear against basic biological questions of genomic and epigenomic variation. His long-term goal is to unlock an understanding of the physical “regulome” — i.e. the factors that control how the genetic information is read into biological instructions — profoundly impacting our understanding of how cells maintain, or fail to maintain, their state in health and disease.
