In Japan we have special grants called "Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Priority Areas" from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology of Japan, and more than thirty research groups focus on their own subjects for five years. Professor Noji in Osaka University, who is eminent for the researches on F1-ATPase and the single molecular technology, is the leader of one of the projects supported by this grants entitled "Innovative nanoscience of supermolecular motor proteins working in biomembranes". On September 8th-10th in 2009, Dr. Noji will organize international conference in Kyoto supported by this grant and a few hundreds of researchers in the field will be expected to join this fascinating meeting.
We aim to discuss recent progress in advanced imaging and manipulation techniques and their application to Cell Biology, Biophysics and protein functions. Thus this symposium will encourage international collaboration in this field and stimulate further advance of the field.
