BNCT Nakamozu Seminar

Micro-distribution of L-BPA

What is the BNCT Nakamozu Seminar?

BNCT is a multidisciplinary cancer treatment method that has been developing on the academic basis of medicine, engineering, pharmacology, chemistry, biology, and nuclear medicine. The Nakamozu Seminar is a seminar series held to further advance and popularize BNCT, inviting outstanding researchers from Japan and abroad who are leading the way in these related academic fields.
