OIST-IMSUT Student Exchange Event 2014

The OIST-IMSUT Student Exchange Event was held on Friday, 22nd August, in the Medical Science Museum at IMSUT. This student exchange event was based on the academic agreement between IMSUT and OIST. IMSUT cooperated with OIST to plan the “OIST Study Tour,” where 14 students in their 1st and 2nd grade of the OIST PhD course travelled around Japanese universities or institutions to see the facilities and hold poster presentations. 17 students had registered and participated from our institute - 1 member to introduce IMSUT, and 5 members to hold poster presentations. We also had some students join at the last minute, and overall it was a very lively, successful event.
