For Public

To let you know about our research, this area contains 4 types of information about CLST; “Article”, “Videos”, “Event” and “Study”.
At “Article”, you can read articles on interviews and lectures, and you can enjoy the videos about CLST at “Videos”. If you want to meet and talk directly with the researcher, “Visit” give you some information of such events. You can find more difficult contents to know about our research deeply at “Study”.

[July 6-7th] Single Cell Science Symposium "Technology Meets Biology"


July 6-7th, 2017


9:30-18:00 (Social Networking event: 18:15-)


RIKEN Yokohama Campus Koryuto hall

1-7-22, Suehiro-cho, Tsurumi-ku, Yokohama, Kanagawa-ken, 230-0045, Japan

[Detailed program can be downloaded HERE] 


The symposium will feature topics addressing advanced technologies for single cell analysis in transcriptomics, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and cell visualization. We also address research applications using on those technologies on stem cells in development, stem cells in tissue, neurons, and immune cells. We hope that all those participating in the symposium will enjoy interactions across various fields of biology and technology in Tanabata.

We call for posters and oral talks for the symposium. After reviewing all the abstracts, the Steering Committee will then select abstracts for oral and poster presentation at the symposium. Authors will be informed of the outcome of their abstract submission in June.

[Registration & Abstract submission] 

Call for Abstracts for Poster Presentations until June 7th (Wed).

Participation in the symposium is free of charge. 

Registration has closed. (NO On-site registration )

[Social Events] 

Networking party is planned on July 6th (Thu) from 6:15 p.m.  

We will send all the participants for the details by email later on.
