Welcome to the 2nd International Symposium on Human InformatiX
The Darwinism, arguably the only theory in Biology, was proposed in the mid-19th century.
The genetic code was cracked in the mid-20th century. The human genome was decoded at the beginning of the 21st century.
In the 21st century, Biology and Medicine is rapidly transforming themselves at an unprecedented pace – mapping all 37 trillion cells, all signaling pathways, all genes and proteins in human to generate the google map of the human body. These endeavors are all to ultimately crack the biological principles of the human and gain insights into “WHAT IS LIFE”.
Furthermore, scientific community and system is transforming.
“Old boys club” “Imperial big labs” are all falling down, getting replaced by virtual transparent lab consortium.
So, in this age, it is becoming absolutely essential to integrate all scientific disciplines such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering, informatics and biology to decode the fundamental principles of life and to understand us, The Human, and THIS IS becoming realistic.
To this end, we organize this meeting, Human InformatiX.
This is the 2nd of the series – the first one was held in February, 2020 in Kyoto, Japan, After the 2-years hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are now organizing the 2nd of the series.
The 1st meeting focused on mathematical and systems biology areas and this 2nd will focus on “sensing, modeling and controlling” aspects of the functions and behaviors of the molecules, cells and organs inside the human body. To this end we are bring in engineering scientists to join biology, medical, informatics and mathematics scientists as our speakers.
Hence, as the keynote speaker, we are pleased to welcome Professor Cynthia Reinhart-King. She is the President of the Biomedical Engineering Society, USA. She is also Cornelius Vanderbilt Professor of Engineering, Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Director of Graduate Studies in Biomedical Engineering at Vanderbilt University in USA.
The meeting is organized and funded by one of the major non-profit agencies funding biomedical engineering: Nakatani Foundation (https://www.nakatani-foundation.jp/en/).
We welcome participation from broad and diverse areas of scientific and medical disciplines and invite you to join us in virtual space or Osaka, Japan. We look forward to seeing you in October, 2022!
