International Students Forum

In 2005, the President of the University of Tokyo visited the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS). Following the subsequent discussions it was decided a program called the Sino-Japan Student Forum would be delivered to boost student exchange activities between UCAS and UT.
 
The forum with focus on the development of life and medical science.was successfully carried out by the Institute of Medical Science at UT in October 2005. At the end of this forum UCAS and UT agreed that these symposiums should have a more international scope. And so, in 2006, the University of Nebraska Medical Centre was invited to be part of the International Student Research Forum.
 
The Forum had attracted more than 450 students from China, Japan, USA, Australia and other countries. It has been held for five times in China ,Japan ,USA and Australia respectively.
 
The Forum aims to attract the world's brightest upcoming scientists, calling for collaboration beyond the lines of disciplines and nationalities. The forum provides an opportunity to showcase world-class education and research. For the past four years, the Forum has brought together graduate students from some of the world's most prestigious institutions to discuss their research. All students shared their current research and developed relationships with each other. They competed for the honor of representing their universities at the forum. This was a great opportunity for students and the universities to represent themselves to a global audience.
 
Today the world of research is more conducive to international collaboration than it has ever been before. By building relationships with international colleagues at forums such as this, students are forging relationships that can positively yield scientific advances which affect countless people around the world.
