Invitation: The 9th GCB Biomedical Science and Engineering Symposium

We are pleased to welcome you all to join us for the 9th GCB Biomedical Science and Engineering Symposium, which is jointly organized by Hokkaido University and Stanford University on 20-21 August 2022. To promote international collaborative research and education, this symposium had been held annually since 2014 at Hokkaido University campus, but due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, the previous symposium was held entirely online, and this year’s edition will be held in a "hybrid format" with virtual and in-person participation.

This year the symposium will feature the cutting-edge research in Clinical and Biomedical Physics, Radiation Therapy, Radiation Biology, and Diagnostic Imaging not only at Hokkaido and Stanford Universities but also at other leading institutions in Japan, the US, Turkey, and Thailand including Kyoto University, Duke University, University of California San Francisco, Bogazici University and Chulalongkorn University. All presentations and discussions will be delivered live via Zoom and recordings will be made available for viewing on-demand with prior registration.

We hope that you will find this symposium fruitful and valuable. The organizing committee looks forward to welcoming you to the 9th edition of its symposium, either in person in Hokkaido or virtually.
