We held a special lecture by Professor Juan Mosqueda (Autonomous University of Querétaro, Mexico) titled “Multi-epitopic chimeras: a platform for the development of vaccines and diagnostic methods for human and animal diseases” on July 8 (Fri) at PK hall. Dr. Mosqueda visited Obihiro by JSPS invitational fellowship for research in Japan. We couldn’t accept foreign researchers in Japan for a few years due to COVID-19, on-site lecture by foreign researchers was the first time in a while. He gave a lecture on chimeric protein antigens and their applications for vaccines and diagnostic antigens.
