We are pleased to announce that the RIKEN BDR Symposium 2023 "Transitions in Biological Systems" will be held on March 7 to 9， 2023 at RIKEN Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research， Kobe， Japan.
In this symposium， we will feature selected topics of transitions traversing across the full spectrum of biological scales， with an aim to reflect the ongoing endeavors at the RIKEN Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research (BDR). We will bring together a broad range of renowned scientists working on these challenging， and yet exciting topics， discuss what lies ahead， and engage in far-reaching dialogues on the divergence and commonality of biological transitions.
We hope that this symposium will be a great opportunity to stimulate cross-disciplinary interactions and discussions that can open new avenues of life science studies. We encourage the submission of abstracts for the poster session for a lively and informative exchange of views. A small number of poster abstracts will be selected for oral presentations.
We look forward to welcoming you to our institute in March 2023.
