“At Kyoto University iCeMS, we are investigating the mysteries of life by creating compounds that can regulate cellular activity with the goal of developing superior functional materials inspired by life’s phenomena,” stated Uesugi .“Cell Biologists, biophysicists, materials scientists, physicists, and bioengineers are combining perspectives from diverse backgrounds, and collaborating to find novel approaches to creating innovative research. These interdisciplinary efforts are essential for solving multifaceted scientific and societal challenges, such as global warming, environmental pollution, disease and aging-related issues. We will continue with our work, expecting that flashes of inspiration will lead to technological innovations and, moreover, a better world.”
 
Cell therapy and biomaterials are frontiers of medical research. The two-day exchange allowed scholars from NCKU and KU to thoroughly discuss the various potential applications of biomaterial science in biomedicine. The discussions sparked innovative ideas and feasible research proposals, further strengthening the academic relationship between NCKU Medical College and Kyoto University. NCKU Medical College hopes that this bilateral meeting will pave the way for more exchanges and innovative research in the future, laying a solid foundation for the field of biomedical science.
