Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine, on March 18th, held a joint symposium regarding neuronal and neoplastic disorders together with the University of Adelaide and the University of Freiburg on our campus. The objective of this symposium was to facilitate up-to-date academic exchange with the University of Adelaide and the University of Freiburg, and promote future joint researches. The symposium started off with welcoming remarks by our Dean, Prof. Masahide Takahashi, expressing high expectations.
Executive Dean, Prof. Justin Beilby together with 4 others from the University of Adelaide and Rector, Prof. Hans-Jochen Schiewer together with 3 others from the University of Freiburg attended and participated in presentations from various approaches and disciplines. Many, including graduate students and researchers, participated in the symposium, and were listening intently. The symposium ended with great success, with active Q&A sessions taking place.
On the following 19th and 20th, Strategy Sessions between three Universities were held on our campus and active discussion took place regarding Exchange of medical students, Joint Supervision Program of doctoral candidates and Partnership for exploring the Seeds for research collaboration.
