Nishiyama gave an invited talk in The 15th Japana-Korea Joint Symposium on Vascular Biology. The tile of my talk is Reconstruction of the roles of pericyte and blood flow in angiogenesis on chip. I thank the organizes for giving me the chance, and also thank all audience join in my talk. I was happy because we got new possible collators with us there.
Dr. Hashimoto and Prof. Yokokawa of collaboration research group have published recent progress in the journal of Integrative Biology. This is the first manuscript which Miura-team in CREST ‘Biodynamics’ published. In this progress, we established a fundamental methodology, in which tissue or reconstructed tissue can be cultured for longer time period by perfusion through the connected vasculature.

K. Nishiyama joined the 68th annual meeting of the Japan society of Cell biology, which are held at Kyoto. This was the first time to join the meeting, but he really enjoyed the exciting meeting.
K. Nishiyama gave a seminar at Dept. of Ophthalmology in Tohoku University, entitled ‘Cell dynamics and the regulatory machinery in angiogenesis’. That was a good experience for me to present our data to ophthalmologists, which might be not so familiar with basic science. I was very glad to be able to discuss with them earnestly.
