In order to prevent the spread of the Novel Coronavirus Infection (COVID-19), this symposium was cancelled. Thank you for your understanding.

Welcome to the 13th Institute for Biomedical Sciences International Symposium!
The theme is "Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine”. More than 10 years have passed since the establishment of human iPS cells, and there are great expectations for regenerative medicine. The symposium invited prominent researchers from Japan and abroad who are studying cardiovascular, hepatobiliary, and renal regeneration to share the latest knowledge in regenerative medicine. We hope that they will deepen their understanding of regenerative medicine and will be a valuable opportunity for international exchange. Please feel free to join us.
