Kick-off Symposium for Moonshot Goal 7
"To Age 100 without Health Concerns "

The Moonshot R&D Project is a new project to promote challenging research and development (moonshot) based on bold ideas that are not extensions of conventional technologies, aiming to create disruptive innovations originating in Japan. AMED will promote research and development to achieve the moonshot goal 7: "Realization of sustainable care systems to overcome major diseases by 2040, for enjoying one's life with relief and release from health concerns until 100 years old". We will hold a kick-off symposium to launch the five R&D projects of this program. We will introduce the society that this program aims for and the aims and contents of each project's R&D in an easy-to-understand manner. In the panel discussion, the advisors will ask questions about each project to deepen the participants' understanding.

We sincerely look forward to your participation.
