Cancer metastasis is the major cause of death for cancer patients. The aim of the Association is to promote the study of cancer metastasis to overcoming this disease. In 1991, a first preparatory committee meeting was held in Tokyo, which resulted in the founding of The Japanese Association for Metastasis Research. Since then, annual meetings have been held in various cities in Japan. Members of the Association consist of researchers in different fields, basic science, clinical science, and industry.
The 27th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Association for Metastasis Research will be held in the Hotel MIELPARQUE Yokohama on the 19th and 20th, July 19, 2018. It is my great honor to organize the meeting, since the Association has played an important role to develop my career as a scientist. The theme of the meeting is ‘Innovation of Anti-Cancer Metastasis Therapy by Interdisciplinary Science and Technology E We have planned lectures and symposia by researchers from Japan and abroad who are actively investigating cancer metastasis, integrating engineering, chemistry, and mathematic. I hope all the members of the Japanese Association for Metastasis Research from basic science, clinical science, and industry will join the Meeting and lively discussions. I also hope that the participants will enjoy the city of Yokohama which Western Civilization has influenced for more than150 years.
