OIST Café in Osaka

~ Academic English Presentation Skills for Science Students & Career Talk by Group Leader of OIST Open Biology ~

In this OIST café, we will focus on Academic English Presentation for scientists. The seminar will be presented by OIST English instructor, Kevin Hunt. You can learn how to structure an English presentation, useful expressions for academic presentations, and effective use of visual aids. 

In the career talk, a group leader of OIST Open Biology unit, Dr. Yoshiyuki Asai, will tell a story about his research and career path. He has developed a new software platform, PhysioDesigner, to assist those who want to create physiological models.  Dr. Asai was presented with an award by the Society of Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE) in late August 2012. Before he joined OIST, he was a chief developer in Osaka University working on a project called insilicoIDE, which was a prior model to PhysioDesigner. He will also talk about his path from a chief developer of Osaka University to a group leader in a research unit of a brand-new graduate university in Okinawa. 

We look forward to seeing many of you who are pursuing a global career in science or who are interested in this emerging field of systems biology and systems physiology!
