Special Lecture

Structural Biology Response to Biomedical Threats

June 8 (Wed) 9:00-10:00 (tentative)

Wladek Minor (Department of Physiology and Biological Physics University of Virginia)

Chair: Chavas Leonard Michel Gabriel Henri (Nagoya University)


Let's talk about the future![ Session Language: Japanese ]

June 7 (Tue)  9:15 - 11:45 (tentative)
Organizers: Toshiya Senda (High Energy Accelerator Research Organization)

In recent years, a large amount of genomic information has been generated, and OMICS analyses have enabled a comprehensive understanding of cellular status. These rapid changes in life science affect the field of protein science, and it is important to consider what we should do in the future based on the current research situation. We have, therefore, decided to invite leading young researchers to discuss the future of protein science freely. Let's talk about the future and enjoy science!

Speakers: Hideaki Kato (Univ. of Tokyo)
Koh Takeuchi (Univ. of Tokyo)
Wataru Iwasaki (Univ. of Tokyo)
Takahiro Kosugi (Inst. Molecular Science)

Basic Lecture of Protein Science

Basics of spectroscopy for protein researches at AlphaFold era[ Session Language: Japanese ]

June 8 (Wed)  10:10 - 12:00 (tentative)
Organizers: Susumu Uchiyama (Osaka Univ.)
Masahiko Kato (Sysmex Corporation)

Spectroscopic instruments are useful tool for routine protein characterizations by professional researchers and students, however understanding their principles and limitations are essential for innovative research as well as avoiding falling into pitfall. In this session, we will relearn the basics of "spectroscopy" to promote the deep understandings of advanced research.

Speakers: Satoshi Takahashi (Tohoku Univ.)
Chojiro Kojima (Yokohama National Univ.)
Yasuhisa Mizutani (Osaka Univ.)
Satoko Suzuki (JASCO Corp.)
