The 8th Conference on Hyperdifferent Fields] Will the time come when humans will hibernate too? Hibernation researchers, gut environment analysis venture, and food functionality venture gather to discuss the future evolution of humans / March 8, 2019 16:20~ @ Shinjuku

panel discussion
Hibernating Humans
〜How will the human body evolve at that time?

Riverness will sponsor the event.The 8th Main Meeting of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields(March 8-9, 2019 (Friday and Saturday)), leading hibernation researchers, gut environment analysis ventures, and food functionality research ventures will gather to discuss "Humans in Hibernation - How will the human body evolve then?" (Session Partner: Kyowa Hakko Bio Co., Ltd.)The event will be held at the following location.

The 8th Main Conference of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields WEB:https://hic.lne.st/2019

Hibernating animals such as bears and squirrels can survive periods of no food or severe cold by lowering their basal metabolism to 1~25% of normal and minimizing energy consumption. If applied to humans, it is expected that this could solve medical problems such as the transportation of critically ill patients and the long-term stocking of regenerated organs. However, hibernation without food for a long period of time is completely "out of the ordinary" for our bodies, and may have a significant impact on commensal bacteria such as intestinal bacteria, which are said to be closely related to the onset of disease and maintenance of health in recent years.
When the era of human hibernation arrives, how will the human body and life span change? We will discuss this question with a leading hibernation researcher and a professional in the field of intestinal bacteria analysis.


We will have a program of discussions among researchers, venture companies, and large corporations from various perspectives, not limited to the themes of this session.
Audience members are invited to attend the conference. Please visit the conference website (see below).

Mr. Genshiro Sunagawa

Since 2001, he has been engaged in emergency medicine, anesthesia, and intensive care as a pediatrician. D. in Medicine from Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine. since 2006, he has been practicing individual-level systems biology combining physiology, genetics, and information engineering to answer the question "why animals sleep". since 2015, he has been conducting research on hibernation using mice in the RIKEN retinal regeneration medicine research and development project. He started his research. He aims to elucidate the principle of hibernation and its clinical application using not only an individual system but also a cell-based metabolic evaluation system. His research style combines medicine, biology, and information engineering.


COO, Metagen Corporation / Project Assistant Professor, Institute for Advanced Biosciences, Keio University
Shinnosuke Murakami
He joined Metagen, Inc. in 2016 and has been Executive Officer and COO since 2018.He has been engaged in research on intestinal bacteria for about 10 years, developing stool preservation technology, constructing a Japanese intestinal environment database, and conducting research and development for practical application of intestinal environment control technology.He also specializes in hot spring therapy studies and in 2015 conducted a study on drinking Nagayu hot springs (Taketa City, Oita Prefecture), which showed that they increase intestinal bacteria that may contribute to anti-obesity and may prevent or improve diabetes In 2018, he received the Research Encouragement Award from the Japanese Society of Hot Spring Climate and Physical Medicine.
