    As a part of the activities undertaken by the Polish Embassy in Tokyo in order to promote in Japan the Year of Polish Science, a scientific forum “Polish Medicine of the Twenty-first century” was held on April 19 on the premises of the Embassy. The forum was attended by the representatives of five medical universities (from Warsaw, Lublin, Wroclaw, Katowice and Torun) as well as by the representatives of the Institute of Molecular Biology of the Polish Academy of Sciences and The Maria Skłodowska-Curie Institute of Oncology.

    The topics of the lectures were selected in order to present the most interesting research projects conducted by academic centers and scientific institutes in Poland, which might be of interest for the Japanese partners in terms of joint implementation. During the forum the audience, consisting of more than 80 guests representing more than thirty Japanese medical universities and research centers, had the opportunity to listen to speeches presenting the major achievements of Polish specialists in such fields as: oncology, cardiosurgery, nephrology, endocrinology, pediatrics, pulmonology, geriatrics, laser dentistry and immunology.

    The forum was preceded by a study visit, conducted on April 18, during which participants from Poland had the opportunity to visit the medical school – Toho University, Omori Medical Center and Center for Integrative Medical Sciences belonging to the RIKEN Institute. Meetings with the Japanese academic, medical and scientific staff allowed the participants from Poland to exchange experience with their Japanese counterparts, to become familiar with the functioning of the Japanese health service and to get acquainted with the ongoing research and scientific projects in the field of medicine in Japan. On April 20 some of the participants also visited the largest medical fair in Japan - Medtec, which was attended by over 500 Japanese and foreign companies from the medical and pharmaceutical industries.
