The 13th Health-Related Academic Symposium (hosts: Sankei Shimbun, sponsors: Fordays) was held online for the first time on February 20, 2022 (Saturday). This symposium dealt with countermeasure to prevent the coronavirus.
Focusing on the subject of immunity and the potential of nucleic acids, four guest speakers were invited to give lectures on this subject: Professor Yoshihito Niki of Showa University School of Medicine, Professor Akane Tanaka of Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, Professor Yukio Kato of Kanazawa University and Dr. Koji Usumi of Life Science Institute. Following each lecture, the speakers took the time to answer a few questions from the live viewers. This symposium was a valuable lesson to learn the importance of immunity and the potential of nucleic acids, helping the listeners examine what they can do now to protect their own society and physical wellbeing in the future.
