History of IREIIMS Activities
    IREIIMS Seminars
First Seminar – August 15th, 2005, from 5:30p.m.
“Adult Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine: Lessons learned from the Heart”
Bernardo NADAL-GINARD, Research Management CAO, IREIIMS and Professor of Medicine, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York City
Up until recently, it was believed that adult hearts are terminally differentiated and did not possess the ability to regenerate. However, evidence emerging since the 1980s seems to indicate that stem cells are present in the heart and it is accepted that stem cells outside of the heart differentiate into heart muscle and blood vessels. The results of an experiment are reported in which cells with the characteristics of stem cells were isolated, transferred to the heart and exhibited growth in mice.
Second Seminar – October 20th, 2005, from 5:30p.m.
“What We Expect from IREIIMS”
Nobuhiro MUROYA, Director, Office for the Special Coordination Funds for Promoting Science and Technology, Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports Science and Technology
IREIIMS is being asked to present a business model through which integrated medicine moves toward preventive medical care while promoting greater participation by both women and the international community at large.
“Diseases as Viewed from the Genome”
Naomichi MATSUMOTO, Professor, Department of Human Genetics,Yokohama City University Graduate School of Medicine
The positional cloning method in which disease genes are isolated from positional information has emerged as a result of progress in molecular biology including recombinant DNA and PCR, and the microarray comparative genomic hybridization(CGH) method was developed. This method was used in the discovery of a number of chromosomal microdeletion syndromes which are caused by the deletions of several megabases or less. The possibility is presented that 10 to 400 kb DNA sequences which closely resemble low copy repeats (LCRs) may act as cause of microdeletion or inversion based on the analysis of specific cases and chromosomal abnormalities.
