6.【Seminar Abstract】
This seminar aims the enhancement of research activity on Bio Engineering. In this seminar, we have three presentations from each organization and then, at the end of the seminar, we have so called "discussion session" in which the purpose is to discuss the next step of the collaboration between medicine (including pharmacy) and engineering (including science) at Kumamoto University. To do so, we have total of 4 short presentations from engineering and science faculties about the seeds on bioengineering study.
Finally, we hope that the research on bioengineering with medical researchers can be continued and new research group on this topic start after this seminar.
