Nano Life Science Institute (WPI-NanoLSI) consists of four fields: Nanometrology, Life Science, Supramolecular Chemistry, and Computational Science. Through the fusion of four fields, we aim to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of fundamental life phenomena, such as the replication and reading of genetic information and cell division, as well as higher-order life phenomena, such as immunity, memory, and thinking at the nanoscale level.

We hold an international symposium annually to develop further transdisciplinary research and establish new cooperative relationships with researchers from diverse backgrounds. The 6th NanoLSI Symposium, organized by Prof. Mikihiro Shibata, who studies single-molecule observations of protein dynamics by HS-AFM, will invite distinguished researchers from Japan, Europe, the United States, and Asia to discuss cutting-edge probe technology under the theme of “Nanoprobe Technology for Understanding Molecular Systems”.

As in previous years, we will also have a poster session in addition to the oral session, where more detailed experimental techniques related to probe technology will be discussed in-depth. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn about the latest research results in various fields. We look forward to your participation.

We are pleased to announce that the RIKEN BDR Symposium 2023 "Transitions in Biological Systems" will be held on March 7 to 9, 2023 at RIKEN Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research, Kobe, Japan.

In this symposium, we will feature selected topics of transitions traversing across the full spectrum of biological scales, with an aim to reflect the ongoing endeavors at the RIKEN Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research (BDR). We will bring together a broad range of renowned scientists working on these challenging, and yet exciting topics, discuss what lies ahead, and engage in far-reaching dialogues on the divergence and commonality of biological transitions.

We hope that this symposium will be a great opportunity to stimulate cross-disciplinary interactions and discussions that can open new avenues of life science studies. We encourage the submission of abstracts for the poster session for a lively and informative exchange of views. A small number of poster abstracts will be selected for oral presentations.

We look forward to welcoming you to our institute in March 2023.
