≪event report≫

In place of Prof. Seiji Ogawa, who had been scheduled to give a lecture, Nobuyuki Kakiuchi (Kyoto University, Assistant professor) gave a talk entitled "On the origin of cancer".

More participants than we expected attended the event, and we are glad that we had stimulating discussion and exchange of views.

Thank you for participating in our first symposium and supporting us!
