Dear Colleagues;

@It is our great honor and pleasure to invite you to attend the 9th World Congress on Inflammation in Tokyo, Japan, July 6th through July 10th, 2009.

@This World Congress, organized by the International Association of Inflammation Societies (IAIS), was initiated in Vienna in 1993, and the 3rd Congress was held in 1997 in Tokyo.

@Progress in inflammation research over the last decade has been great. Molecular bases of various inflammatory responses have been revealed and numerous novel potential therapeutic targets have been uncovered. Humanized antibodies have been applied for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and various inflammatory diseases, and custom-made medicine is now expected in the post-sequencing era. In addition, although it is a long-lasting dream of inflammation researchers to regenerate the impaired organs due to excessive chronic inflammation, we consider it is time to integrate regenerative medicine into inflammation research. Therefore, the main theme of this congress is entitled INNOVATIVE RESEARCH OF INFLAMMATION, REPAIR AND REGENERATIVE MEDICINE.

It is our intention to provide opportunities to hear from world-class scientists, exchange information and ideas with attendants, and find business partners.

The Tokyo Bay area, as well as the center of Tokyo, has been dramatically renovated in the last few years. We do hope you will come to new Tokyo and enjoy Japanese culture and science.

Sincerely yours,

The President of the 9th World Congress on Inflammation

Kouji Matsushima
