Kyoto and Boston Present: Life Sciences Forum

Thursday, April 25, 2019 from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

CIC Boston, 50 Milk Street, 20th Floor (Lighthouse Room),
Boston, MA 02110

This year, the City of Boston and the City of Kyoto, Japan, will celebrate our 60th Anniversary as Sister Cities. Signed in 1959, Kyoto is Boston’s first-ever Sister City. In Japan, 60 is a significant number, signifying rebirth or kanreki. Therefore, the two cities are planning a series of events throughout 2019 in order to commemorate this milestone.

Join a world of experts at CIC Boston on April 25 as we explore the explosive growth of the life sciences sector in both regions. Guests will hear remarks and insights from Kyoto's Mayor Kadokawa, Dr. Phillip A. Sharp of M.I.T., Dr. Robert Langer of M.I.T., and Dr. Yasuhiko Tabata of Kyoto University. A moderated panel discussion featuring the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, Biogen, and FUJIFILM Pharmaceuticals will follow, illustrating lessons and best practices for life sciences companies, academia, and local government.
