Welcome to the Japan Society for Biomedical Gerontology

The Japan Society for Biomedical Gerontology (JSBMG) was born from the Japan Aging Research Group, a predecessor organization established in 1977. The group expanded and established JSBMG in 1981.

Aims of JSBMG:

1) Promotion of basic aging research based on scientific discussions

2) Contribution to achieving a healthy society, one with increasing healthy longevity

The official journal of JSBMG is Biomedical Gerontology, which is published three times a year. The Society hosts annual scientific meetings for members and organizes symposia covering a broad area of research relevant to aging research. The Society also participates in a biannual joint meeting composed of six gerontology-related societies, the Japan Geriatrics Society, the Japan Socio-Gerontological Society, the Japanese Society of Gerontology, the Japanese Psychogeriatric Society, the Japan Society of Care Management, and the Japan Academy of Gerontological Nursing.
