IDRM Inaugural Symposium

Please register by Friday 21 October 2022. The Symposium will be followed by a wine reception at the IMS-Tetsuya Nakamura Building (IDRM)

The IDRM Inaugural Symposium is an opportunity to showcase the building and for those of us working in the field to exchange ideas and build networks. Speakers will discuss their latest research related to the three main research themes of our Institute: Neuroscience, Cardiovascular science, and Immunology as well as showcase platforms in advanced imaging and -omics. Further, we will be hosting a wine reception at the IDRM after the Symposium.
