Kyoto University has established eleven "on-site laboratories" in collaboration with its overseas partners. Each on-site laboratory, led by a particular unit within Kyoto University, has specific aims to promote research, education and academia-industry collaboration.  Three of the on-site laboratories, which were established in collaboration with North American institutions, have organized this symposium to stimulate advances in medical and life sciences. These three labs and the three focal themes of the symposium are detailed below.

  • iPS Cell Research Center at Gladstone Institutes, established in collaboration with Gladstone Institutes, San Francisco:
    Session 1: Stem cells and cell reprogramming
  • Quantum Nano Medicine Research Center, established in collaboration with the University of California, Los Angeles:
    Session 2: Quantum science, nanomedicine, and radiation therapy
  • Kyoto University Research Center San Diego, established in collaboration with the University of California, San Diego:
