Understanding advances in science and technology are critical to predicting the future of health care innovations. In this session, UTokyo IPC will sit down with a panel of thought leaders from across the United States and Japan, including entrepreneurs and venture capitalists with ties to Tokyo-based pharmaceutical companies, the University of Tokyo, and UTokyo IPC, who are based in the Boston area. They will share their thoughts on trends in translational biology, biotech investing, and company creation. The panel will also consider opportunities for synergy and collaboration between the biotech ecosystems in Boston and Tokyo. We kindly invite you to join us in this discussion about building the future of scientific and medical collaboration on the global stage.
