The Forefront of Nanobio Device Research

2011-2-17 (Thu) 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

As a part of the Kawai Project supported by the Cabinet Office's Funding Program for World-Leading Innovative R&D on Science and Technology (FIRST Program), a symposium will be held at the Panasonic Center in Daiba, Tokyo, on Thursday, February 17. The content of the project will be explained to students and the general public in a non-technical style.

In this project, in cooperation with various businesses, university researchers are conducting research in order to apply advanced nanodevice technology to next generation genome sequencing technologies. Such research will make possible extremely early diagnosis of cancer, highly sensitive virus tests, diagnosis by breath analysis, and pollen allergy and food sensitivity tests.

Researchers from universities and companies will speak about results of advanced research in this project and about the vision for an envisioned safe society achieved by this project. Research results will be on display enabling persons attending to experience various results.

The organizers look forward to seeing many persons in attendance.

Admission is free. Please plan to attend if this topic is of interest.
