The 8th COINS Symposium was held on Friday, January 21, 2022, under the theme “From Sick Care to Health Care – Future Society created by In-Body Hospitals – both online and a public viewing at Kawasaki City Industrial Promotion Hall.
In this symposium, we reported the outcome of the whole nine years activities of COINS which reached the final year under the theme "Future Society created by In-Body Hospitals, and at the same time, we visualized a future healthy society with everyone who participated through a roundtable discussion on health care in a super-aging society.
In Part 1, COINS scientists made presentation of their research outcome using cutting edge nanobiotechnology and the mechanism for implementing them in society with keywords “cancer," "brain disease," "mRNA," "diagnostic device," "nanomachine and medical device," and "innovation ecosystem." After the presentations, Dr. Kazunori Kataoka, COINS Research Leader, presented the research of COINS which is entering a new stage.
In Part 2, focusing on the content of prior discussions on the issues of the super-aged society and their scientific solutions that the modern high school students who will carry the society as core members of the care side in 2045 where we aim to realize “In-Body Hospital” and the COINS scientists had, we set up a roundtable discussion under the title of "Toward the Realization of a Smart Life Care Society" with participants from the fields of companies, universities, education, nursing, and scientific literacy. Through the presentations of the students of Kawasaki City High School for Science and Technology and the roundtable discussions, the COINS scientists had a good opportunity to reconsider about a desirable future society that will be the exit for their research. We had more 300 participants mainly Kawasaki citizens and from companies and academia and showed their interests on COINS. Through ZOOM, we received many questions on research and the development status of nanomachines. It was a great success, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who visited the symposium.
