ABOUT

Welcome to IBS Conference for East Asian Neuroscience Cooperation

Neuroscience research in the East Asia is rapidly increasing in its size and quality, with the combined efforts perhaps equaling to the level of those in the EU community. Yet, however, organized cooperative efforts among the countries may be lagging behind. This conference is designed to promote awareness and exchange of neuroscience researches in nearby East Asian countries and institutions. This time the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) in Korea is hosting the conference in concert with the Korea Brain Research Institute (KBRI) and the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST). This year’s major guests would be researchers from the Institute of Neuroscience (ION) in China and two scholars from RIKEN in Japan. It is expected that this conference will help facilitate active interactions among scientists of the three countries, which will further the growth of neuroscience researches in the region. We could envision that such efforts when continued may fertilize conceiving an idea of an international entity for research supports of projects to solve global health problems related to the brain in the future.

I would like to welcome again especially those delegates from China and Japan, and hope that in addition to conference you will have a chance to enjoy the beautiful fall weather here.
