The 25th East Asia Joint Symposium was held in Chongqing, China from October 25th to 26th and hosted by Shanghai Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (SIBCB, CAS).

This symposium was launched about 25 years ago, and aims to facilitate the exchange of information and foster good relationships between top East Asian life science researchers. Participating institutes host it in rotation. This time, the following 12 institutions participated:

Institute for Frontier Life and Medical Sciences, Kyoto University (Japan)
Institute of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, National Taiwan University College of Medicine (Taiwan)
The Institute of Medical Science, The University of Tokyo (Japan)
The Institute of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Seoul National University (South Korea)
Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (Japan)
Shanghai Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (China)
Soonchunhyang Institute of Medi-bio Science, Soonchunhyang University (South Korea)
Graduate Institute of Biomedical Sciences, Chang Gung University (Taiwan)
The Graduate Institute of Integrated Medicine, China Medical University (Taiwan)
Graduate Institute of Physiology, National Taiwan University College of Medicine (Taiwan)
Institute of Cellular and Organismic Biology, Academia Sinica (Taiwan)
Center for iPS Cell Research and Application, Kyoto University (Japan)
 
A total of 8 researchers took part from the Institute of Medical Science, the University of Tokyo (IMSUT). The senior researchers gave 20-minute oral presentations, while the young researchers supplemented their posters with 5-minute short talks.
 
At the beginning of the symposium, the memorial lecture “ Memorial of Prof. Ken-ichi Arai” was given by Dean Murakami and Project Prof. Watanabe, and all participants reflected upon Professor Arai and his achievements during the symposium.
 
Dr. Yuhei Maruzuru, a young scientist of IMSUT, received the "Outstanding Young Scientist 2nd Place TOMY Award" at the symposium. The title of his award-winning research was “Inhibition of AIM2 inflammasome activation by an HSV-1 virion component enables efficient viral replication in vivo.”
 
Next year, the symposium will be hosted by the Institute of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Seoul National University (South Korea).
