Centennial of Hashimoto Disease International Symposia
December 1-4, 2012
Greeting from the President of the Japan Thyroid Association (JTA)
I hope that all the members of the JTA have a wonderful and brilliant season.
The JTA Council has made up its mind to promote further progress in our association this year. We are making many efforts to establish attractive programs in each meeting such as continuing medical education, supporting young investigators, and creating new clinical evidence on thyroid diseases in Japan.
This year, 2010, we will have several important International Conferences in Kyoto and in Paris, respectively. We must strengthen and further establish our academic cooperative network in the world which is useful for fundamental research as well as for diagnosis and treatment of patients with various thyroid diseases.
In the long run, our association encourages and improves the education of young clinicians and researchers who are interested in the field of thyroidology. In line with this view, we have produced several new initiatives including the Young Investigator Award and travel grants for internship doctors. To live up to the expectations of young active members, the JTA has established the novel prize systems of the Basic Research Award and the Clinical Application Award, in addition to the traditional awards (Shichijo's and Miyake's Prizes).
Please come and join us at our Anneal Meeting: I am sure that you will not only enjoy our programs, but also broaden your knowledge through the Japan Thyroid Association.
With best wishes,
Shunichi Yamashita, M.D., PhD.
