    INTERNATIONAL SUMMER PROGRAM 2011 AT TOKYO MEDICAL AND DENTAL UNIVERSITY
    24/03/2011

    ISP2011 Application Guidelines Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) has organized the International Summer Program 2011 (ISP2011) in order to bring together students and young scientists from Asia to study fundamental and emerging topics with leading organ/tissue development and regeneration research scientists. Those who are interested in joining a TMDU PhD course program in the near future are especially welcome to apply for this program. ISP2011 will provide opportunities for the participants to (1) learn about TMDU, (2) visit TMDU research laboratories/departments of interest in consideration for their PhD study, and (3) discuss issues of interest with international students at TMDU.

    ISP2011 will consist of two parts. The Lecture Course will feature presentations by leading researchers from abroad and from Japan, including researchers based at TMDU. On the final day the ISP2011 International Symposium will be held. This symposium will feature presentations by invited researchers from overseas. In addition to these scientific aspects of the program, ISP2011 will also help participants meet researchers at TMDU and learn about opportunities for studying at the university.

    The theme for ISP2011 is "Organ/Tissue Development and Regeneration - Fundamentals and Clinical Applications."
