【Report】 The 9th GIAR International Symposium
On February 25, 2021, GIAR took place the 9th Online International Symposium of Gunma University Initiative for Advanced Research (GIAR) under the theme of “Breakthroughs in Cancer Metabolism and Technological Perspectives”. After the welcome address by President Hiroshi Hiratsuka, the guest speakers delivered their talks on the screen with their presentation slides, which reflected the diversity of GIAR itself. Each talk made a number of fruitful discussions from the audience. Finally, this event successfully ended with the closing remarks by GIAR Director Kenji Kubota. This year, the symposium is broadcast by Zoom between Gunma, Japan and France & Belgium because of the COVID-19 however we had over 80 attendees and it became a great occasion to adapt New Normal.
