Three laboratories from AOYAMA VISION Health Innovation Project (College of Science and Engineering) of Aoyama Gakuin University were exhibited in the BioJapan 2021 World Business Forum.
In order to promote the social implementation of medical and health-related academic research, AGU launched the Health Innovation Project in 2021 as an initiative to form the foundation of AOYAMA VISION Health Innovation Science Network and to promote interdisciplinary development with a view to establishing a Center.
From Wednesday, October 13 to Friday, October 15, 2021, AGU participated in the BioJapan 2021 World Business Forum, one of Asia's largest partnering events held in Pacifico Yokohama.
As a result of the project, we will introduce exhibitions about the development of DNA analysis technology using Nanopore, the development of inexpensive and innovative RNA analysis technology, the deep-layer study of pathological diagnosis based on image data, the evaluation of aging and diseases using Zebrafish (small tropical fish) as models, and drug discovery.
