Okazaki Biology Conferences



Okazaki Biology Conferences (OBC)

The Okazaki Biology Conferences international are meetings whose themes are chosen from among those issues in basic biology expected to become more and more important as the field progresses, with the aim of creating new communities of researchers. Typically one organizer from Japan and one organizer from overseas are chosen to freely manage the conference. Several dozen researchers are invited to spend approximately one week participating in significant and compelling discussions.
