CABA is a not-for-profit professional organization registered in Massachusetts since May 2007. CABA is committed to promote public awareness of advancement in the pharmaceutical and biomedical industry, professional interactions in the fields of life sciences, global biomedical innovations and business development. As the majority of its members are scientists with Chinese heritage, CABA will operate in two important areas. One is to serve as a platform for its members to develop and advance their careers in the US pharmaceutical and biomedical industry, the other is to serve as a bridge to connect members including corporate members with the scientific and business resources in China thus facilitating collaboration between the pharmaceutical and biomedical industries across continents. To fulfill these goals, we will organize scientific and business symposia, conferences, workshops, in US and China, as well as social events to promote networking and communication among members. We will bring together members, scientists, professionals, government officials and business leaders across the continents under a collaborative environment and achieve their best potential.
