The 1st KU-KAIST Joint Symposium (The 3rd IRCMS & IROAST Joint Seminar) on October 22nd, 2018 at KAIST, Korea

The 1st KU-KAIST Joint Symposium was held on October 22nd, 2018 at Matrix Hall, KI Building, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Daejeon, Korea.

The symposium was jointly organized by KAIST and Kumamoto University (KU), and it was also held as the 3rd IRCMS & IROAST Joint Seminar (IRCMS: The International Research Center for Medical Sciences, Kumamoto University; IROAST: The International Research Organization for Advanced Science and Technology, Kumamoto University.).

The symposium started with the opening remarks by Prof. Yong-Mahn Han, the Dean of College of Life Science & Bioengineering, KAIST. Then, before starting joint sessions, the Introduction of GSMSE, KAIST by Prof. Gou Yong Koh, the Introduction of IRCMS by Prof. Takizawa, and the Introduction of IROAST by Prof. Hiyama followed.

The Symposium theme was "Stem cell-vascular biology and related technologies".
Six primary investigator (PIs) from IRCMS, 3PIs from IROAST and 5 PIs from KAIST introduced their cutting-edge researches in the four sessions of "Cell Biology", "Vascular Biology", "New Technology" and "Human Disease". 

The aim of this symposium was to match potential research collaborations between Kumamoto University and KAIST, in the field of bio-engineering to harness medicine and technology, in particular, bio-imaging(microscopy, nanotechnology and microfluidics)and single cell analysis(big data informatics, mathematical modeling, etc.). Also, we agreed to have The 2nd KU-KAIST Joint Symposium that has been scheduled on January 25, 2019 in Kumamoto, Japan.
