Dear Colleagues,

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of you as we gather for the International Conference on Biofabrication in Fukuoka in 2024. As the honored chair of this remarkable conference, it is my privilege to address you.

Biofabrication is an emerging field that has the potential to revolutionize our world through advances in science and technology. By harnessing biological materials and processes, we can create sustainable and innovative solutions. The purpose of this conference is to provide a platform to share leadership in the field, foster collaboration, and exchange innovative ideas and achievements.

During the 2024 conference, we will focus on a wide range of topics and themes, bringing together experts and researchers from around the world. We will explore various aspects of biofabrication, including the latest research findings, technological advances, and industrial applications. In addition, through workshops and discussion sessions, we aim to facilitate interaction among participants and explore opportunities for collaborative research and partnerships.

Fukuoka, a beautiful city where tradition meets innovation, will serve as our host for this conference. By meeting here, we will have the opportunity to immerse ourselves in Fukuoka's food and culture and gain new insights and perspectives.

In addition to our conference, I am pleased to announce that the Kyushu Grand Sumo Tournament, a prominent event in the world of sumo wrestling, will be held during our meeting. This will add an exciting dimension to our visit and allow participants to meet firsthand the traditional and unique sport of sumo.

Finally, our conference thrives on the active participation and contributions of all participants. I encourage you to share your research and ideas and engage in stimulating discussions to advance the field of biofabrication. We look forward to making new connections and fostering lasting collaborations during the conference. With sincere appreciation and warm regards, I eagerly await your presence at the 2024 International Biofabrication Conference.
