During the visit of Vice President Galbraith and Director Fukagawa to HU, we had a meeting to explore research collaboration opportunities between HU, UV, and USDA at which Vice President Galbraith and Director Fukagawa exchanged opinions with HU researchers. The two delegates presented at the Hiroshima University Academic Lecture Meeting held at Higashi-Hiroshima campus, and the Hiroshima University Translational Research Center Academic Lecture Meeting held at Kasumi campus. This new partnership brings further opportunities for exchange between HU, UV, and USDA.
