Welcome to the Kyoto University-UCLA International Symposium / 25th iCeMS International Symposium

Harnessing Physical Forces for Medical Applications – The Convergence of Physics, Nanomaterials, Cell Biology and Cancer Research.


  • Physical forces: beams, particles, light, magnetic field, and sound.
  • Physical forces and cancer therapy: boron neutron capture therapy, and monochromatic X-ray radiation.
  • Imaging: MRI, PET, single molecule imaging, and cryoEM.
  • Nanomaterials: Stimuli-responsive nanomaterials.
  • How Physical force is used in biology: contractile nanotube system, and cell surface and membrane.
  • How cells and organs interface with nanomaterials.
  • New industry and commercial development: innovation, and medical instrumentation.
