by | Apr 4, 2016 | Alliances, Diversity, Education, Fogarty Innovation

The Fogarty Institute has enjoyed ongoing partnerships with several Japanese companies, which place teams at the Institute to learn about innovation that can further benefit patients, and Japanese universities and hospitals, as part of our effort to help improve healthcare globally.

A team from Okayama University, led by Yasutomo Nasu, professor at the Center for Innovative Clinical Medicine at Okayama University Hospital and chief of medical research, came to the Institute to explore team placement to develop a robotic system to remotely reduce radiation exposure in labs.

Last November, the Okayama University opened a campus in Silicon Valley to focus on international medical device development, and help link startups to Okayama University Hospital to conduct clinical trials and clinical research, among others goals.
