Kick Off Workshop for the Research Center for Gold Chemistry

Download brochure

Tokyo Metropolitan University (TMU) set up four research centers from 2012 to 2013. Distinguished groups exploring new frontiers of science and unique groups conducting special research reflecting the missions of TMU are designated as Research Centers to expand their research activity. The “Research Center for Gold Chemistry” (RCGC) is one of the four and is directed by Professor Masatake Haruta, who has been known as a Nobel Prize candidate. To celebrate the start of RCGC in a new building, RCGC holds an international kick off workshop on “Physics, Chemistry, and Biology of Gold: from Nanoparticles to Clusters”. In this workshop the latest research achievements will be presented by top-rank scientists from domestic and overseas and by young growing scientists from domestic and china.

Don’t miss this opportunity to touch the exciting world of gold nanoparticles and clusters.

Date May 14 (Wed.) – 15 (Thu.), 2014
Venue International House, Tokyo Metropolitan University
Capacity 120 People
Fee Workshop: free / Buffet :JPY 5,000
