Café on the Next Edge -- "Membranes, backseat players, will change Manufacturing in the Future"

2011-11-11 (Fri) 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

As one outreach activity, the Funding Program for Next Generation World-Leading Researchers, "Creation of Innovative Biotechnology Based on Membranome," headed by UMAKOSHI Hiroshi, will hold Café on the Next Edge -- "Membranes, backseat players, will change Manufacturing in the Future" on Friday, November 11.

There are "chemical factories" in all living organisms. For example, photosynthesis in plants produces a complex compound by using water, carbon dioxide, and sunlight. Also, in digestion, our bodies break down foods into simpler compounds through chemical reactions, "chemical factories."

This café guest, UMAKOSHI Hiroshi, is examining the use of "chemical factories" to manufacture materials by in vivo chemical reactions. He will speak about how he came up with this idea.

Lecturer: UMAKOSHI Hiroshi, Associate professor, Graduate School of Engineering Science, Osaka University, who conducts research under the Funding Program for Next Generation World-Leading Researchers.

Facilitator: IWASAKI Takuya, Specially appointed lecturer, Research and Public Relations Planning Coordinator, Support Office for Large-Scale Education and Research Projects, Osaka University
