WPI Nano Life Science Institute, Kanazawa University

5th NanoLSI Symposium will be held in online format on March 1-2, 2022

Nano Life Science Institute (WPI-NanoLSI) aims to acquire fundamental understanding of life phenomena on nanoscales.

The 5th NanoLSI Symposium is organized by Professor Alexander Mikhailov and Associate Professor Satoru Okuda from the Division of Computational Science in this institute. Its focus is on acquisition, processing and theoretical interpretation of experimental data in the research of dynamical nano-level processes in the cells. In the talks by invited speakers, current progress and the trends in the field will be presented and reviewed.
