Time: 27-28 July, 2017
Place: KISTAMÄSSAN Room E4

We are in the golden age of innovation that the new ideas and technologies such as artificial intelligence, gene therapy, and robotics are updated every single minute. Governments around the world keep an eye on aforementioned trends and prepare to confront the new era, the product of paradigm shift. Science has played critical role both in helping society to make good decisions and in promoting the improvement. Basic science and the its policy act as a supporting role in setting the national priorities and research funding to design the future on the right track along with the frontier science. Those elements are essential to the realization of desirable future. In this forum, we discuss the interaction among the basic science, technology and policy to construct the cornerstone of promising future. It is imperative that significance of well-setting national priorities on the basic science and technology researches to drive the future in a right way can never be overemphasized. Accordingly, the STEPI-IBS Forum on “Horizons in Basic Science and Policy” will discuss both on the responsibility of science policy for the future and on the technologies. With their experience and expertise to promote science for the uncertain future, national representative experts of Korea and EU nations will assemble to discuss above topics.

Synopsis
In order to build a solid foundation in the new heavy waves of the innovation and new technologies, the basic science and its policy act as a supporting role in setting the national priorities and research funding to design are increasing significance. Those elements are essential to the realization of desirable future. In the policy session, we discuss the interaction among the basic science, technology and policy to construct the cornerstone of promising future in different aspects of the world. In this session, panel discussion will be held after main presentations. Panels include Prof. Axel Timermann (Director of CCP at IBS) and Prof. Taeghwan Hyeon (Director of IBS) as well as all speakers

Conveners / Chairs
  • PROF. HYEON, Taeghwan (Center for Nanoparticle Research, IBS / Seoul National University) CONVENER
Synopsis
Nanomaterials exhibit interesting size-dependent electrical, optical, magnetic, and catalytic properties that cannot be achieved by their bulk counterparts. A great deal of progress has been made in nanoscience and nanotechnology over the last two decades. The session is intended to discuss and address critical issues related to nanomaterials, including fundamental understanding of their properties, synthesis of new functional nanomaterials, assembly and integration of nanomaterials for applications in energy and medicine.

Synopsis
Aging followed by death is a universal and inevitable fate in most organisms including humans. Yet, there remain many significant questions. Each species exhibits its own characteristic life history of aging and death. Comparative study of aging and death processes across species will provide important insight into general and species-specific mechanisms of this fundamental life history strategy and into understanding and curing aging of human species. For this purpose, scientists from Sweden and Korea will be presenting aging mechanisms in broad spectrum of species including plants, invertebrates, vertebrates, and human. This session should not only provide the state-of-art status of aging mechanisms in each species but also become a forum to compare the aging mechanisms from a broad perspectives and to foster collaborative researches among the aging scientists from two countries. Session I will be led by speakers and students from Center for Plant Aging Research, Institute for Basic Science and DGIST. There will be four speakers, and each of them will deliver a 25-minute talk.

    Title: INHIBITION OF MIR-210 EXPRESSION IN HYPOTHALAMUS ENHANCES ENERGY METABOLISM BY INCREASING AUTOPHAGY ACTIVITY IN AGED MICE
  • DR. HAHM, Jeong-hoon (Center for Plant Aging Research, IBS) [ 13:55 - 14:20 ]
    Title: Age-associated cellular surveillance and defense system defends against aging in C. elegans
