UK-Japan Symposium on Data-Driven Health: Data strategies to predict risk, prevent and manage disease in individuals and populations



Wednesday 26 February 2020

Co-organisers: The Academy of Medical Sciences, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science and Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development.

This symposium, co-Chaired by Professor Jill Pell FMedSci and Dr Yuko Harayama, will bring together representatives from academia, industry and the healthcare sector in the UK and Japan around the theme of health data.

Throughout the day, speakers will address health data optimisation and resources including biobanks; engaging with patients and delivering care through digital platforms; and the application of health data to support clinicians through AI and machine learning.

This event is a part of the Japan-UK Season of Culture 2019-20, and aims to promote international scientific exchange and collaboration.

Introduction to data and resources available at Statistics Bureau Japan


We would like to inform you of the following event organised by Dr Ekaterina Hertog of the University of Oxford and funded by the JSPS London Symposium/Seminar Scheme.


"Introduction to data and resources available at Statistics Bureau Japan"

Date and Time: 11:00 t0 18:00, Thursday 9th January 2020.

Venue: LLR Room, Nuffield College, University of Oxford


In two parts this symposium aims to showcase data collected and made available to researchers by the Japanese Statistical Bureau. In the first part two Japanese statisticians: Professor Hiroe Tsubaki (Director-General, The Institute of Statistical Mathematics, Tokyo; former president of the National Statistics Centre, Japan) and Dr Kiyomi Shirakawa (Deputy Director, National Statistics Centre, Japan) will talk about the statistical data collected by Statistics Bureau Japan with a particular focus on the data that can be used by scholars residing outside Japan. These presentations will be followed by Prof Nobuko Nagase (Ochanomizu University) and Mr Minoru Yagishita (Tokyo Metropolitan University) presenting their own research carried out using the data from the Statistics Bureau, Japan

Neutrino physics: past, present and future


Date and Time: Thursday, 19 December 2019, 10:00 – 15:30

Location: Springer Nature Campus, London

This event was organised by Dr Teppei Katori, King's College London and Dr Iulia Georgescu, Nature Reviews Physics with support from JSPS London

Neutrinos may be key to tackling deep questions about the Universe, such as the existence of new physics beyond the predictions of the accepted model of particle physics. There are many things we don't yet fully understand about these elusive particles, and to search for answers, physicists rely on large high-precision instruments built in unusual places, such as the Antarctic or abandoned underground mines, that are operated by big international collaborations. Some of the questions this event covered include: What have we learned about neutrinos in the past decade and what do we hope to uncover in the coming years? How do these large instruments work and what does it take to run large international collaborations? Why do physicists build their experiments in remote locations and what technologies do they use to detect neutrinos? What challenges do they encounter when working across continents?

Five leading scientists from the UK and Japan gave presentations and shared their excitement about neutrino physics and discussed the practical challenges they face in their research.
