The First A3 Roundtable Meeting on Chemical Probe Research Hub achieved a complete success in Sendai during Nov. 18 to Nov. 21, 2019. Although I attended this meeting only for first 3 days. It was my first time to make a presentation in foreign country, and became a great experience. I was able to make an oral presentation in English. Since it was first time for me to go abroad, I was a little nervous before this meeting. Looking back on the 3 days now, it was very exciting and marvelous experience for me.
It was great honor and pleasure to meet many famous professors in a various research fields. Some of the lectures about biology were little bit difficult to understand for me because my major is organic chemistry, but I recognized the knowledge of both fields was important for deep understandings of chemical biology.
I was very fortunate to participate in this meeting and to have a worldwide connection with professors and students from China, Korea, and Japan. Although my English is poor, it was a really stimulating occasion to me.
Finally, I would like to thank A3 foresight program to support me to join in this meeting. I want to continue this international network in the future and I would like to contribute to future cooperation by further self-improvement.
