Welcome address

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is a great honor to welcome you to the 13th ANRRC International Meeting (ANRRC 2022), which will be held on November 8-9, 2022. RIKEN BRC is more than happy to host this meeting. Considering that the outbreak of “Omicron” variants of COVID19 is still continuing worldwide, we decided to hold the meeting in an online format, following the highly successful ANRRC 2021, which was hosted by NSTDA, Thailand, last year.

We understand that the goal of the ANRRC is to promote sciences, technologies, and innovations, by facilitating the access to the research resources and their usability in the countries and regions of Asia and Oceania, and thereby to improve the human welfare. Toward realization of this goal, the ANRRC International Meetings held in the past have worked tirelessly through the exchange of information and ideas on the most important infrastructure, research resources.

RIKEN BRC has established a Local Organizing Committee (LOC) chaired by Dr. Moriya Okuma, Director of Japan Collection of Microorganisms, and the LOC has made a program that is as rich in the content as the past meetings in cooperation with the ANRRC Executive Board members. In the oral sessions, all the participants will enjoy the lectures by experts from a variety of fields related to research resources. And in the poster session, the LOC adopted Zoom “Breakout Room” system, which allows the participants to enjoy discussions in a format like poster sessions in person. One of the major missions of the ANRRC is to nurture young people who will carry on the enterprise of research resource centers, and we encourage young researchers to actively join the poster session.

We regret that we will not be able to see you all in person, but I am confident that you will be satisfied with the contents of the meeting. I am sure the 13th ANRRC International Meeting will be fruitful for all participants and provide an excellent opportunity for renewal of friendship among the ANRRC members. I hope that all the participants will enjoy the meeting and it will further promote our cooperation.

Toshihiko SHIROISHI

President of ANRRC,
Director of RIKEN BioResource Research Center, Japan
