 We have a monthly meeting for the discussion of individual research theme. Every students and PostDocs will give a short presentation about progress of the research. We give importance to failures as well as successful experiments, because the failures hold great potential for wonderful results.

Research Meeting

◆ Paper Research


Most of researches start with unique ideas or serendipitous discovery. In Paper Research, students have a 1 hour talk about one research topic including ideas, background, breakthrough, recent progress and future visions. Here it is important to read papers through reviewer’s eyes.

◆ Study Meeting

Reaction mechanisms are a kind of language in chemistry research. In study meeting, we select a couple of synthetic research papers to discuss detailed mechanisms for reported reactions.
