Roundtable Goes Virtual and Drug Discovery

After successfully having hosted ten NU Tech Roundtable technology showcase events at Research Triangle Park (RTP) in North Carolina since 2010, Nagoya University and Technology Partnership of Nagoya University, Inc., Nagoya University’s strategic arm in the States, will host a virtual Roundtable for its 11th installment this fall. The new virtual Roundtable can address broader audience beyond RTP and beyond AgBiotech, which is the RTP’s largest industry sector and which has been a major topic of the last ten NU Tech Roundtables. This fall the virtual Roundtable focuses on NextGen platform technologies for accelerated drug discovery, including disruptive startups from Nagoya University.
