Animal Health Innovation Asia 2020

We succesfully had a virtual event of Animal Health Innovation Asia 2020 by Kisaco Research. November 25th was Japan Day, and thanks to Mr. Calan Smith, I was honored to host 3 programs, i.e. “Panel Discussion” by Messrs. Kato, Fukui and Hagihara who are industry leaders from Zoetis JapanZenoaq, and Kyoritsu Seiyaku, respectively, “Innovation Showcase” by 4 start-ups, such as Toletta CatsMT3, Vetamic (Nihon Univ.), and KAICO, and “University Pavilion” by 3 universities, such as Prof. Mizuno of Yamaguchi Univ., Assoc. Prof. Isaka of Rakuno Gakuen Univ., and Dr. Kato of Tokyo Univ. of Marine Science and Technology.
We hope that we can have an offline event, not a virtual one, in Tokyo in 2021.
