IRAGO Conference 2017 was held in University of Electro-Communications (Tokyo) dated of November 1-2, 2017. Tokai University acted as one of the Organizers.
According to the key word “materials” in this year, more than 100 participants from inside and outside attended in the conference. Not only undergraduate and graduate students but also high school students presented in the poster session. The conference leads to lots of fruitful discussions which expands collaborations driving further developments of science and technology. Note that the evening session was supported by AAAS Science which is for sure contribute to deeper understandings of interdisciplinary research fields.

PRESS RELEASE September 8, 2017

Tokai University research: Nanomaterial wrap for improved tissue imaging
Researchers at Tokai University describe in Advanced Materials how wrapping biological tissue in a nanosheet of a particular organic material results in high-quality microscopy images. Application of the wrap prevents the sample from drying out, and hence from shrinking, enabling larger image-recording times.
