Recent advances in key technologies, such as stem-cell culture, genome editing, single-cell sequencing, and microscopy as well as mathematical analysis and modeling have created unprecedented opportunities to study human biology. Accordingly, our knowledge of human biology, including development, genetics, evolution, and diseases has seen a rapid expansion, making it timely to discuss the current understanding of human biology and its impact.
The 21st Takeda Science Foundation Symposium on Bioscience, “Towards Understanding Human Development and Evolution”, will cover topics ranging from “Human Development In Vivo and In Vitro”, “Human Genetics and Evolution”, to “Germ Cells: Genetic and Epigenetic Inheritance”. We hope this will create an opportunity to synthesize new prospects and understand what it is to be human.
On behalf of the organizing committee, we cordially invite you to participate in the symposium to exchange ideas and expertise with leading scientists in this endeavor. We look forward to seeing you in Osaka in January 2021.
