SYDNEY Cheap Nike Air Max TN , March 12 (Xinhua) -- The latest potentialities of global stem cell research will come under the microscope when one of the world's largest ever gatherings of leading neurosurgeons, neurologists and psychiatrists mass in Sydney next week for the World Congress of the Society of Brain Mapping and Therapeutics ( SBMT).

The theme of the conference is "Brain Therapeutics, bringing together engineering, art, science and medicine."

UNSW Associate Professor Kuldip Sidhu Nike Air Max TN Ireland , co-convener of the event and president of the California-based SBMT told Xinhua that"This is a unique opportunity for researchers from all over the world to hear about the most cutting-edge research and hopefully it will lead to further collaborations down the track."

According to a University spokesman, Sidhu will be presenting a world-first study "Brain in the Petri dish" with Scientia Professor Perminder Sachdev from UNSW's Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing and Dr Henri Chung which will touch on breakthrough technology concerning patient-derived stem cell technology (iPSC).

With the ultimate potential to assist early onset of Alzheimer' s disease treatment, the discussion will lift the lid on a brain disease process to be modeled in the Petri dish with cells derived from patients.

The arrival of so many leading neuroscientists in Sydney is also certain to be watched nervously by the booming nutrient supplement industry after a major report released last month suggested the booming international market for nutrient supplements -- worth 68 billion U.S. dollars according to research from Euromonitor -- as woefully lacking scientific confirmation.

The report, commissioned by Alzheimer's Disease International and Compass Group, recommended that"clear Nike Air Max Zero Ireland , consistent and independent evidence-based advice"on nutritional supplements be made available to those at risk of, or already living with dementia.

The Sydney event will also honor global achievements in neuro- scientific achievements.

Sidhu will be awarded the "Pioneer in Medicine Award" for his contributions to stem cell research and his global consortium approach in iPSC technology.

Dr Charlie Teo, a Conjoint Associate Professor at UNSW, will receive the "Humanitarian Award" for his work including establishing and funding a hospital in India and operating on patients who don't have the money to get appropriate care in the developing world.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott will be given the " Pioneer in Healthcare Policy Award" by the SBMT.

The prime minister is being recognized for his support of brain research through a massive Australian -- 200 million U.S. dollars - - dementia initiative.

The U.S. Congressman Chaka Fattah, who will be at the Congress Cheap Nike Air Max Zero , will receive the same award.

The conference kicks off in Sydney next week.

BEIJING, Aug. 3 (Xinhua) -- China's service sector growth cooled slightly in July but remained in expansionary territory, a private survey showed Thursday.

The Caixin General Services Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) fell to 51.5 in July from June's 51.6, according to the survey conducted by financial information service provider Markit and sponsored by Caixin Media Co. Ltd.

A reading above 50 indicates expansion, while a reading below 50 represents contraction.

This came after an official survey showed China's non-manufacturing sector expanded at a slightly slower pace Nike Air Max 98 Ireland , as the index for the service sector stood at 53.1 in July, down from 53.8 in June.

The official survey samples 4,000 relatively large non-manufacturing companies, while the Caixin survey has a smaller sample size of over 400 companies and mainly focuses on small and medium-sized firms.

Caixin said that activity in China's service sector softened in July as growth in new business weakened and hiring was sluggish.

The subindex of new orders fell for a second month, edging down to 51.8 after a large drop to 51.9 in June from 53.5 the previous month. July's number was the lowest reading since February 2016.

Zhong Zhengsheng Cheap Nike Air Max 98 , director of macroeconomic analysis at CEBM Group, a subsidiary of Caixin Insight Group, said that growth momentum in the world's second-largest economy was "stronger than expected" at the start of the third quarter "mainly due to sustained recovery in the manufacturing sector."

However, "downward pressure on the economy remains as the index gauging companies' confidence about the 12-month business outlook dropped in both the manufacturing and service industries," he said.

The service sector -- which includes finance Nike Air Max 270 Ireland , real estate services and marketing, transport and retail -- has become an increasingly important part of the Chinese economy as the country tries to shift its economy toward a growth model that draws strength from consumption, services, and innovation.

The sector accounted for more than half of the Chinese economy last year.
