As part of Osaka University's Project for Inspiring Advanced Research, the seminar outlined below will be held on Wednesday, July 20.

In thinking about "Life and Humans in the 21st Century," the research group "The Future of Humans in the Era of Bioscience"  will consider two essential themes --"life force theory" and "biohistory"-- in this open seminar.

Two specialists in the above themes will be speaking, YONEMOTO Shouhei from The University of Tokyo, well-known in bioethics and research in the history of biology, and NAKAMURA Keiko from the JT Biohistory Research Hall. They will present lectures entitled, respectively, "What's behind the theory of a Life Force?" and "Talking about Biohistory."
