Export of Japanese technologies to Russia continues
The Second International Forum of Oncology and Radiology, which was held from September 23 to 27 at the World Trade Center, has completed its work in Moscow. This year there were twice as many participants compared to last year. And it is worth noting separately the highest interest of foreign delegations in this event. For the first time, the Forum brought together a huge number of international experts from more than 15 countries.
For example, the delegation from Japan arrived in a very representative composition. Hiroshi Tsuji, Director General of the National Institute of Quantum and Radiological Science and Technology (QST), Koji Noda, Executive Director of the National Institute of Quantum and Radiological Science and Technology (QST) and Masashi Chatani, Deputy Director of the Osaka Ion Therapy Center, visited Russia.
Their interest would be caused, first of all, by the search for opportunities to promote ion therapy in Russia. Recall that in September 2019, a memorandum on the construction of an ion center in the city of Obninsk was signed within the framework of the Eastern Economic Forum. Japanese colleagues gladly responded to the invitation of the NMIC of Radiology and became honorary participants of the Second International Forum of Oncology and Radiology and the IV International Scientific Readings in memory of Academician A.F. Tsyba. As part of the scientific sections, they made presentations and talked about the experience of radiation therapy with heavy carbon ions in Japan and the world.
Following the meeting, it is planned to further expand cooperation between Russia and Japan by signing a cooperation agreement with the National Institute of Quantum and Radiological Science and Technology QST. According to the Director General of the FSBI “NMIC of Radiology” of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, A.D. Kaprin, it is a great honor to work with Japanese colleagues. – Our Japanese colleagues are very cautious about exporting their technologies. We have been preparing the ground for a very long time, we have repeatedly been to Japan, and they are in Russia to show that Russia is really at the forefront in the fight against cancer,” Kaprin said.
