Nano Life Science Institute (NanoLSI), selected as a World Premier International Research Center (WPI) in FY2017, aims for acquiring a fundamental understanding of the various life phenomena, such as development, disease and aging through transdisciplinary research of Nanometrology, Medical / Pharmaceutical Science, Supramolecular Chemistry and Computational Sciense.
This time, as the first step to the goal, NanoLSI hold The 1st International Symposium in commemoration of the start of this research institute as follows.
In this symposium, the director will introduce our institute. In addition, we will invite world leading researchers who carry out research in NanoLSI’s related fields. Further, our principal investigators, taking a central role in each NanoLSI’s field, will present their research.
We are sincerely looking forward to seeing you at this symposium.

We are pleased to announce that the 22nd Biennial Meeting of the International Society for Developmental Neuroscience “Development of circuits, functions, and disorders in the nervous system” will be held on May 22 (Tue) – 25 (Fri), 2018 at Nara Kasugano International Forum, Nara, Japan.
For full details, visit the following website:


Abstract submission deadline: 12 January 2018

Author registration deadline: 28 February 2018

This meeting covers a wide range fields within developmental neuroscience from basic studies with diverse model animals to studies of human diseases, and will include talks and poster presentations on the topics listed below. Two short talks will be selected for each symposium from the poster presentations. As in previous years, the ISDN will provide a number of travel and poster awards for trainees.
Nara is an ancient capital of Japan for 5 centuries prior to Kyoto, and you will also enjoy the city and its oldest culture of Japan. The main hall of the venue is indeed a Noh-gaku stage (Japanese traditional performance), which is a fun (see the poster). Nara is also close to Kyoto (40min by train).
We look forward to your participation.

We are pleased to announce that the CDB Symposium 2018 will be held as follows:

Theme: Dynamic Homeostasis: From Development to Aging

Date: March 26 (Mon.) – 28 (Wed.), 2018

Venue: RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology (CDB), Kobe, Japan

Deadline: Friday, December 15, 2017

Participation fee: FREE (Lunch and Banquet fee required separately - optional)

Lunch: 3,000 JPY (3 days)

Banquet: 5,000 JPY (General) / 1,000 JPY (Student)


Tissue homeostasis is a dynamically regulated process. Cells and tissues exhibit a high degree of adaptability during maintenance, maturation and renewal, and respond to a wide range of environmental changes. They also have intrinsic and extrinsic systems for damage control and repair. Stem cell systems, systemic modulation within and between tissues, and epigenetic controls may all underlie the robustness and plasticity of tissues. Defects in such homeostatic systems lead to developmental disorders, while aging is thought to involve the gradual deterioration of their function. In this symposium, we will cover a wide range of topics on dynamic homeostasis and cell/tissue integrity from the cellular to organismal level, establish new perspectives, and look to the next frontiers of the field.

The program of the 2017 CDB Symposium will feature presentations covering a broad range of topics, including (1) Maintenance of tissue integrity, (2) Homeostatic disorder, (3) Systemic control and metabolism, (4) Aging, (5) Chromosomal and epigenetic control, (6) Cell lineage and single cell analysis.

We encourage the submission of abstracts for the poster session from many scientists to increase opportunities for lively and informative exchange of views. A small number of poster abstracts will be selected for oral presentations. A limited number of travel fellowships for graduate students and post-docs traveling to Japan will also be available.

We look forward to seeing you in Kobe, Japan in March 2018.
