WPI Nano Life Science Institute, Kanazawa University

4th NanoLSI Symposium(Online)

Nano Life Science Institute (WPI-NanoLSI) aims to acquire a fundamental understanding of various life phenomena, such as development, disease, and aging at the nano-level through transdisciplinary research of Nanometrology, Life Science, Supramolecular Chemistry, and Computational Science.

To further develop transdisciplinary research, we have been holding international symposia every year to build new collaborative relationships with researchers.

This year’s fourth symposium will be held online as there is no prospect of ending COVID-19. To facilitate research exchange that is only possible through virtualization, we have decided to invite prominent researchers from Europe, North America, and Asia to give a talk at the conference and schedule each session to be held according to their local time.

This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the latest research findings in each field. We look forward to your participation.
