Japanese Respiratory Society's annual meeting with a global focus

We were delighted to see a global presence at the 56th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Respiratory Society (JRS) conference in Kyoto Japan. The conference, themed "Pulmonary medicine 2016, Developing Intellectual and Future Innovations", featured ATS/ERS/JRS/APSR Inter-Assembly Symposiums that aimed to promote basic lung research and strengthen exchanges with academic societies overseas.

Many International speakers were invited as lecturers to highlight important progress being made in the field of respiratory research. Key International symposiums included:

  • Update on lung cancer
  • Inter-assembly symposium on Allergy, Immunology and inflammation
  • Inter-assembly symposium of Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology
  • Update on COPD pathogenesis and therapy
  • Update on asthma pathogenesis and therapy
  • Update on Pulmonary Fibrosis and therapy

    Mr. Eiji Iwane and Shota Inoue, emka & SCIREQ's representative in Japan, and SCIREQ's Vice President Mr. David Brunet met with researchers and delegates from the various respiratory societies, taking part in this international collaboration first hand.

    We loved Japan and hope all JRS attendees enjoyed its amazing culture, food and views of Sakura cherry blossom trees. We hope to see you in Tokyo next year.
