KANAZAWA, Japan, Nov. 17, 2020
KANAZAWA, Japan, Nov. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The 4th NanoLSI Symposium will be a virtual meeting covering bio-imaging, sensing, and manipulation for medical science. The Nano Life Science Institute (WPI-NanoLSI) was established in 2017 as part of the World Premier International Research Center Initiative of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.
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 interdisciplinary research, the WPI-NanoLSI has organized annual international symposia to build new collaborative relationships with researchers across the world.
This year's fourth symposium will be held online because of restrictions to travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To facilitate research exchange that is only possible through online, the WPI-NanoLSI has invited prominent researchers from Europe, North America, and Asia to give talks during the symposium, where each session is scheduled according to the local times of the speakers.
This is an excellent opportunity to gain valuable insights into the latest research findings in bio-imaging, sensing, and manipulation for medical science.
