Many old good classmates joined the seminar. K. Nishiyama enjoyed the seminar and the subsequent social gathering.


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.


The third scheduled meeting of CREST research (Miura team of the area “Creation of Fundamental Technologies for Understanding and Control of Biosystem Dynamics”) was held at IRCMS of Kumamoto university. In addition to reports about recent research progress from each group, Prof. Takizawa provided a recent topic regarding hematopoietic stem cell as a guest speaker, who works as a PI at out institution. The meeting was exited and interesting through the whole.


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.
