Osaka City Central Public Hall

This year, we have a hands-on program that should prove useful to all biomedical and med/pharma translators regardless of where they are in their careers. The entire day will be interactive starting with a BYO CAT tools workshop with Ben Tompkins, followed by an updated version of an extremely useful session in translating “Fuzzy Verbs” with Dr. Daisuke Yanase.
After a short lunch break, expect a fun session of interactive quizzes with Tony Atkinson and finish with oncology-related pharmacokinetics, mechanisms of action, and immunotherapy with Shiho Koizumi and Sako Ikegami. (Download assignment here). We look forward to seeing you there!!
