Comments by Poster Winners

I truly appreciate very much the Organizing Committee and the Poster Presentation judging panel for the opportunity to take part in KBCCC 2014 and for giving me this award, it is a great honor for me. It was a wonderful experience for me to come to Kyoto and take part in this worthwhile venture. I learned a great many valuable things and had a fantastic experience meeting and talking to many outstanding researchers and professionals from around the world during this international convention. It will be a great encouragement to me in my professional work whenever encountering difficulties in the coming months.

My trip to KBCCC 2014 has been full of surprises and rewarding. Without any doubt, KBCCC has provided me a huge momentum in finishing the project and presented to professions whom came from the rest of the world. It was a great honor to receive the prize as there were lots of other high quality posters. In addition with those lectures from invited speakers, the conference has clearly demonstrated a high level of collaborations with a positive attitude within the group to provide the best possible patient care. Winning the prize encourages me further to continue our project for the next step which is to implement it safely and effectively to our patients.
