I hosted an institutional seminar by Dr. Takanori Takebe (Cincinnati Children's Hospital/Yokohama City University). It was an impressive talk (as usual) with a lot of updates since I heard his seminar last time. His project is of course scientifically great, but his effort to develop new therapeutic approaches based on his findings is fantastic too. Interestingly, this was probably the third or fourth time to hear his seminar, but the first time to do so in Japanese for me.
I look forward to hearing progress in his project from him, and it would be great if I could give a talk next time (in Cincinnati would be super).
