|Prof. Morikawa and Dr. Masashi Kuroda (Osaka University) attended an on-site research meeting with Dr. Boonmak Chanita (FY2013 graduate: Kasetsart University), a member of the ALCA symbiotic microbe utilization project, and a collaborator Assoc. Prof. Metha Meetham (Mahidol University). The students at Meetham Lab are very active and friendly. There was a sushi picture, a Japanese lantern and banners at the cafeteria store, but the menu was completely Thai food. We wish good cooperation between Thailand and Japan will continue.
