The 22nd Takeda Science Foundation Symposium on Bioscience


Mice are different from humans. So are their immune systems. That is the fact.
Researchers have known this for decades. However, the technical limitations for human immunology research have hindered our ability to comprehensively understand human immune cells and their alterations in various diseases. Now, the time has come for human immunology research. Recent advancements in research platforms allow us to delve into the intricacies of immune cells at a single-cell resolution, including transcriptional and epigenetic profiling, along with spatial information. Brand new bioinformatics tools to deal with complex datasets have been developed daily for improved data analysis and interpretation.

The 22nd Takeda Science Foundation Symposium on Bioscience, titled “Unravelling the Human Immune System” will focus on cutting-edge human immunology research across diverse topics ranging from “Vaccine/Infectious diseases”, “Genome/Epigenome”, “Tissue resident immune cells”, “Primary Immunodeficiency/Autoimmunity” to “Cancer Immunology”. Esteemed researchers will present their latest findings on human immune cells and novel technologies for human immunology research. We anticipate that this symposium will ignite a new era of deeper understanding of the human immune system, inspiring young scientists to actively engage in this critical field.

On behalf of the organizing committee, we cordially invite you to participate in the symposium to exchange ideas and expertise with top scientists in the field. We look forward to seeing you in Osaka in February 2025.
