CABA Texas Chapter

Chinese-American Biomedical Association (CABA), a 501(C)(3) non-profit professional organization based in Massachusetts since 2007, today announced the launch of its first chapter outside Massachusetts. The first chapter, named CABA-Texas (or CABA-TX), will be based in Houston, Texas.


CABA is committed to promoting public awareness of advancement in life sciences and the biopharmaceutical industry and strives to build a platform that facilitates scientific, professional, and cultural interactions in the fields of life sciences, global biomedical innovations and biomedical product development. Similar to Massachusetts, Texas is home to a number of world-class academic and medical institutions and represents a major forefront in life science and biomedical innovation. With a large number of biomedical scientists and professionals in the Houston, Dallas, and Austin areas, CABA-TX endeavors to become a nucleus for those who share our vision and values.


CABA-TX will be led by Xiaotong Song, Ph.D.(center in the picture), a researcher-turned-entrepreneur, who will serve as the chapter’s inaugural President. A team of community leaders with diverse background, experience and expertise will serve on the Executive Committee of CABA-TX. 


CABA organizes events and programs that promote advancement in life sciences and commercialization of innovative diagnostics and the rapeutics. CABA also organizes and participates in activities that facilitate networking and interactions among scientists, professionals, and entrepreneurs from academia and the biomedical and pharmaceutical industry. As the majority of its members are scientists and professionals with Chinese heritage, CABA endeavors to provide a platform for its members to develop and advance their careers in the pharmaceutical and biomedical industry and to serve as a bridge between the pharmaceutical and biomedical industries across the Pacific. To fulfill these goals, CABA organizes scientific and business symposia, conferences, workshops, career fairs, as well as social events to promote networking and communication among its members.

CABA所组织的系列活动和会议旨在促进生命科学的进步、创新诊断和治疗方案的商业化。 CABA也会组织或参与促进科学家、专业人士和来自学术界、生物医药以及制药行业的企业家之间的社交和互动的活动。由于其大多数会员是具有中国背景的科学家和专业人士,CABA努力为他们提供一个平台,以发展和推进他们在制药和生物医学行业的职业生涯,并成为跨越太平洋的制药和生物医学工业之间的桥梁。为了实现这些目标,CABA组织科技和商业研讨会、会议、招聘会以及社交活动等,以促进其成员之间的社会交流和沟通。

CABA is a volunteer-operated society and relies on members to contribute their time and effort to build the organization. We also rely on corporate members and sponsors to raise funds to support our activities. We value integrity, honesty, professionalism, community service, scientific excellence, responsibility and accountability. We invite you to explore our organization and hope that you share our values and vision and are interested in becoming a member, devoting your time or efforts, or sponsoring CABA activities.
