We are happy to announce the international symposium “Make Life Visible” sponsored by the Uehara Memorial Foundation, will be held from June 12 to 14, 2017.
In recent years, marked advances in imaging technology have enabled the visualization of phenomena formerly believed to be completely impossible. These technologies have made major contributions to the elucidation of the pathology of diseases as well as to their diagnosis and therapy. Adding further promise for future development are imaging tools in the broad sense, such as optics and optogenetics - the revolutionary use of light to control cells and organisms.
From molecular imaging to clinical images, the Japanese are world leaders in basic and clinical research of visualization. We strive to foster innovative, creative, advanced research that gives full play to imaging technology in the broad sense, while exploring cross-disciplinary areas in which individual research fields interact, and pursuing the development of new techniques where they fuse together.
The 9th Specific Research Project, “Make Life Visible” was established by the Uehara Memorial Foundation as a 3-year research project to support such research. In this Special Project, three areas (Session 1-3) were targeted from basic research to clinical application. Nineteen Japanese researchers were selected, and research was begun in 2015.
In this international symposium, we will build on the outcomes of the 9th Special Project, with presentations focusing on the cutting-edge findings of visualization technologies by the 19 Japanese Special Project members as well as about 10 leading researchers invited from overseas.
We look forward to this symposium being a forum for the presentation of the latest research outcomes, future prospects, and new strategies in visualization technology, from basic research to the clinical front lines (diagnosis and treatment).
We look forward to your participation.
