The history of academic exchange and collaboration between Nagasaki University and Leiden University began in 1989. Over the years we have built partnerships in the areas. Nagasaki University School of Medicine is honored to host Nagasaki-Leiden Joint Symposium on The Clinical Sciences of Healthy Ageing. The main topic of the symposium is “healthy ageing,” a topic of great significance and interest today in all over the world. The symposium will consist of lectures on the research of disease in the elderly, clinical interventions and prevention in ageing. Leiden University Medical Center is renowned for biomarker research in the field of ageing studies. Please see the attached program. If you are interested in these topics, please join us.
