The 1st NanoLSI International Symposium - Towards Establishment of New Research Field: Nanoprobe Life Science- will be held

 Nano Life Science Institute (NanoLSI), selected as a World Premier International Research Center (WPI) in FY2017, aims for acquiring a fundamental understanding of the various life phenomena, such as development, disease and aging through transdisciplinary research of Nanometrology, Biological / Medical / Pharmaceutical Science, Supramolecular Chemistry and Computational Science.
 This time, as the first step to the goal, NanoLSI hold The 1st International Symposium in commemoration of the start of this research institute as follows.
 In this symposium, the director will introduce our institute. In addition, we will invite world leading researchers who carry out research in NanoLSI’s related fields. Further, our principal investigators, taking a central role in each NanoLSI’s field, will present their research.
 We are sincerely looking forward to seeing you at this symposium.
