CiRA International Symposia are designed to promote iPS cell research. The CiRA 2022 International Symposium is the first CiRA Symposium online. It's theme, as the name suggests, puts a special emphasis on collaboration, which has been challenged by the limitations of international travel in response to the pandemic.

Because we cannot all gather in Kyoto, the format of this year's symposium will be different from previous ones. Except for the keynote lecture, all talks will be available online for viewing beginning one week before February 16. On the days of the Symposium, February 16-17, the speakers will be divided into four panel discussion groups, inviting questions from the registrants. In addition, there will be a special talk by two scientists who will describe how they found new positions overseas while working in Japan during the pandemic.

Finally, there will be two poster sessions. Posters will be available for viewing beginning one week before the Symposium, at which time viewers can schedule appointments with the presenters.


To clarify some confusion, with the exception of Maria Barna on Thursday, no participants will give live talks on the days of the symposium. They are online now for viewing. The presenters will be available during their respective panels to answer questions live. However, presentations should be viewed beforehand at https://aicrtc.gakkai.online.
