Gerontology Society Seminar

2014-2-9 (Sun) 1:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

Gerontology is the study of the social, psychological, and biological aspects of aging. In anticipation of Japan's aging society and the accompanying opportunities for pursuing gerontology research, Osaka University established the Gerontology Society as a cross-boundary organization in 2013. In order to share activities of the Gerontology Society with researchers both at and outside Osaka University and improve the network of gerontological research centered at Osaka University, we will be holding some symposiums this year.
This seminar on Sunday, February 9, will consist of two parts: (1) reports on the society's activities on ongoing long-term longitudinal studies of senior citizens and (2) lectures. The lectures will be presented by ISOMURA Minoru, Department of Pathology, Shimiane University, who has been researching the prevention of lifestyle-related diseases in Shimane Prefecture, and SHIBATA Hiroshi, former Vice Director, Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Gerontology, Professor, University of Human Arts and Sciences, and one of the pioneers of longitudinal research on the elderly in Japan.

Individuals interested in gerontology are cordially invited to attend this seminar.
