Osaka University Institute for Academic Initiatives Division of Innovation Research for Drug Development Symposium - "Environment and Health, Toward Drug Development"

2017-1-20 (Fri) 13:00 -

The Division of Innovation Research for Drug Development in the Institute for Academic Initiatives holds a symposium each year, and this year, we've invited 2014 Nobel Laureate in Physics Prof. NAKAMURA Shuji (Professor, University of California, Santa Barbara) to speak with us about "White light-emitting diodes that are similar to sunlight that are not blue, but purple." In addition, we'll hold a lecture and panel discussion on blue light issues and light environment and health in which we'll discuss light, health, and environmental issues from various angles.

Professors from Osaka University will also talk about ulcerative colitis, in which stress is involved.

In addition, after the symposium, just as in the past two years, we will be holding an information and technology exchange session to promote collaborative research both within the university and in collaboration between industry, university, and government. We hope to contribute to the activity of the university by introducing drug development technology and seeds of research from within Osaka University and developing these into brand new research and projects.
