Thank you for participating in the joint meeting of the 64th Annual meeting of the Japanese Society of neuropathology and the 66th Annual meeting of the Japanese Society for Neurochemistry
Congress President; Kazunori Imaizumi
The joint meeting held at Kobe International Conference Center on 7/6 (Thu) ~ 7/8 (Sat) has ended successfully. Since it was held completely on-site, the number of participants approached 1,000 (962) and each venue was a great success. I think that the conference of "exhaustive discussion" that our Society emphasizes has been fully revived after a long time.
This time, it was a joint meeting with the Japanese Society of Neuropathology, and "fusion" was one of the major themes. In the plenary lecture, Dr. Akira Sawa and Dr. Koichi Tanaka emphasized that an interdisciplinary approach based on the fusion of disciplines is indispensable for the development of brain science, including neurological disease research. I believe that this message has enhanced the value of the joint holding by the two academic societies. In addition, during the exhibition period, the big news that Alzheimer's disease drugs have been officially approved in the United States jumped in, and the plenary lecture by Dr. Takeshi Iwatsubo was extremely timely. The total number of presentations reached 551, which greatly exceeded our initial expectations. I feel that the symposium, where researchers with different views discussed each other in a debate, was able to depict the problems in that research fields, and it was an important discussion. There were many other sessions available, and all the venues were very exciting. The social gathering was also surprisingly successful, with about 300 people participating, which is the capacity of the venue. We apologize for the inconvenience to those who could not participate due to the overcapacity.
Finally, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the many people involved in the preparation of the meeting, including the members of the executive committee and program committee, and everyone who participated in the meeting.
The Japanese Society for Neurochemistry was founded in 1958 as an affiliated society of the Japanese Society of Psychiatry and Neurology. Due to the increased number of researchers in the field of basic science, such as anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, and pharmacology, at that time, we decided to develop a neurochemical community and renamed it The Japanese Society for Neurochemistry in 1966.
Our society is currently the largest and oldest neurochemical society in the world. The membership has grown to approximately 1250 members, with a good mix of basic and clinical researchers. Our collective member societies include the International Society for Neurochemistry (ISN) and the Asian Pacific Society for Neurochemistry (APSN).
The aim of the Japanese Society for Neurochemistry is to promote information exchange, discussion and collaboration among the members and related organizations. The society co-host an annual meeting with other related societies nationally and internationally covering all aspects of brain science. To support young scientists in the society, we host a unique 2-day seminar for graduate students, post-docs and other scientists during the annual meeting. This provides valuable experience and education in a variety of disciplines. We will continue to help develop the neurochemical society by supporting basic and clinical researches in various ways.
