The Frontier Development Program for Genome Editing


On September 14, 2022, Hiroshima University held the second seminar in the advanced science seminar series on the theme of "Developing a Future Society with Genome Editing." In the seminar, Professor ASAHARA Hiroshi of the Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, delivered a lecture entitled "Genome information revealed for the first time by genome editing."
Approximately 100 participants attended the seminar, and the event ended with a great success. The participants gave us positive feedback, such as "The lecturer brought up topics of sports players, which made me easy to understand the seminar," and "This seminar gave me an opportunity to get to know the potential of genome editing in the medical field."

The Hiroshima University Advanced Science Seminar "Create the Future Society with 'Genome Editing'" will be held by the faculty members in charge of the Frontier Development Program for Genome Editing of the World-leading Innovative & Smart Education (WISE) Program to widely inform the society about this program and genome editing technology. The series is planned to comprise four seminars. Details regarding subsequent seminars will be provided on the website of the Frontier Development Program for Genome Editing and through other media. We look forward to having several people attend the seminars.
