After being appointed as members of the organizing committee of the 17th symposium, we have been closely monitoring the infection situations in Japan and overseas. Because the categorization of COVID-19 has been downgraded from “Class 2" to "Class 5" in Japan very recently, we have decided to hold the 17th symposium in person at the Noda Campus of Tokyo University of Science. We are preparing not only for infection situations such as COVID-19 but also for unexpected weather conditions and so on in September.
We hope that many students, scientists, and researchers would visit Noda Campus and enjoy the presentation, discussion, and chattering in the symposium. The preparation of the Graduate Student Session, which started in the 16th symposium, is now progress by the student organizing committee comprising 10 postgraduate students and we believe that this session will be successful. we sincerely look forward to seeing you at Tokyo University of Science together with the members of the student organizing committee and the organizing committee of the young scientists’ forum on September 7th at the University of Tokyo.
With my best regads,
Professor, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences
Vice Director, Research Insitute for Science and Technology (RIST)
