Osaka University and Knowledge Capital will jointly open a "super" school series, a course to think about "thinking".This is a five-time program to "think" about the ability, energy, and ideas to think for yourself with five researchers from Osaka University.
Knowledge Capital's "Super" School Series is a program in which participants think and interact with researchers from universities and businesses.We have provided a place to connect general participants and researchers in collaboration with Osaka University, Center for iPS Cell Research and Application, Kyoto University, Keio Graduate School of Media Design, and National Museum of Ethnology.In this series, researchers at Osaka University will consider together the process of what kind of ideas led to such research.

◎ 1st October 10th (Thursday) Professor Kenji Nagai A bright future with shining plants! ??
Plants generate energy by themselves through photosynthesis, but what can we do if we can use that energy to shine?I would like to ask you what you have already done with this idea and your dreams for the future.
◎ 2nd November 11th (Thursday) Specially Appointed Professor Kiyokazu Nakajima Aiming for a painless "ultimate technique"
Some of the top athletes and craftsmen develop their own tools to use.Professor Nakajima is a leading surgeon who specializes in endoscopic surgery, and at the same time, is passionate about developing surgical instruments.What kind of painless surgery is Professor Nakajima aiming for?

Aging is associated with aging, which progresses slowly in units of the body that cause weakness and wrinkles on the face.On the other hand, Professor Hara focuses on how the function and connection with the surroundings change on a cell-by-cell basis.I would like to introduce what I have learned from research from a different perspective than the image of ordinary humanization.
◎ 4th December 12th (Thursday) Professor Genji Kurisu A little ahead of the introductory edition of protein research
It is essential to elucidate the structure of proteins in order to clarify how organisms maintain their lives and why they get sick.To that end, in protein research, we are exploring what kind of structure it has by concentrating the knowledge accumulated so far in physics, chemistry, biology, and medicine.This time, I will introduce a story a little further from the basics.
◎ 5th January 1st (Thursday) Professor Kaoru Mitsuoka What can be seen with recent electronic microscopes?
An electron microscope developed to see things that cannot be seen with an ordinary microscope.With improvements in technology and performance, the range of things that can be observed is expanding more than ever.What is Professor Mitsuoka looking at with the electron microscope?You may also be able to hear about Professor Mitsuoka's work process, which bridges physics, biology, and engineering.
