Report of The Fourth A3 Roundtable Meeting on Asia Chemical Probe Research Hub
Graduate School of Science,
Tohoku University, Japan
In my oral presentation (10 min), the topic is the development of a tool molecule for elucidating the pathological mechanism of host-selective toxin. We focused on the chemical structure of host-selective toxins, we made and reported chemical probes for elucidating the mode-of-action. Some researchers were interested in identification of the target proteins mentioned in the future plan, I enjoyed the fruitful discussion in the question-and-answer session.
In other oral sessions, many professors presented impressive “front-line” research involving chemical biology. These talks gave me some hints for my research, such as strategies for target identification etc. and motivated me.
Through this meeting, these experiences made me inspired in my research. I’m looking forward to the day we will discuss again at another conference.
At last, I’m deeply grateful to all organizers and all members in this meeting. I will value relationships with people gaining acquaintances in this meeting.
