2011-11-17 (Thu) 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

As one outreach activity, the Funding Program for Next Generation World-Leading Researchers, "Chemical Synthesis and Function Analysis of Microbially-Derived Chemical Compounds and Discovering New Control Molecules," headed by FUJIMOTO Yukari, will hold Café on the Next Edge -- "Does Immunity Need Microorganisms? -- Bacteria and Active Substances in the Immediate Environment as viewed by Chemistry" on Thursday, November 17.

Our body has an immune system to protect us from pathogens. It has been clarified that there is a not-shallow relationship between the immune system and microorganisms. The guest speaker, FUJIMOTO Yukari's area of research is microbially-derived chemical compounds affecting the immune system. Starting with micrroorganisms such as the well-known bifidus, Dr. Fujimoto will speak about the mysterious relationship between microbially-derived chemical compounds and the immune system.

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

Facilitator: SAKANOUE Jun, Specially Appointed Associate Professor, Immunology Frontier Research Center, Osaka University
