The Olympics Special Lectures

Tohoku University is hosting its annual Homecoming Day on September 28 and 29.

As part of the weekend festivities and the build up to the Tokyo Olympics, Olympic themed special lectures are taking place.

Although the Olympics is primarily known as sporting event, the special lectures will focus on some of the other intriguing aspects that come with hosting the Olympic Games.

The event hopes to present a different angle to the Olympics via discussing architecture and medical science.

As such, the event will feature lectures from Tohoku Professors along with a discussion with a special guest.
