JAIMA and China Instrument Information Network will jointly host the “Japan-China Science Forum – Life Sciences”


TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Japan Analytical Instrument Manufacturers Association (hereinafter “JAIMA”; Location: 2-5-16 Kanda Nishiki-cho, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, 101-0054 Japan; President: Akira Nakamoto; Advisor main: Shimadzu Corporation) announces that on Wednesday, July 20, 2022, it will jointly hold the second “Japan-China Scientists Forum – Life Sciences” online with China Instrument Information Network.

This year’s theme is “Life Sciences”, and JAIMA has invited Professor Emeritus Toshihiro Akaike from Tokyo Institute of Technology as the keynote speaker. Professor Akaike began his career in polymer chemistry at the University of Tokyo and continued his research on biomaterials linking polymer chemistry and biochemistry through his work at Tokyo Women’s Medical University. This year’s conferences will cover the latest advances in biomaterials, from regenerative medicine and drug delivery to vaccines based on cadherin biology and cadherin engineering. In addition, Teiko Shibata-Seki, a visiting scholar at Tokyo Metropolitan University who has contributed to Professor Akaike’s research via atomic force microscopy (AFM) measurement, will also give a lecture.

Also from China, JAIMA is pleased to welcome Professor Yangjun from the College of Life Sciences of Nankai University and who is also a student of Professor Akaike, as well as distinguished professors from Tsinghua University and Chinese Academy of Sciences.
