DOHaD Japan Society
The Japan Society for Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD-Japan) was launched in July 2012, and officially became a Chapter member of International Society for DOHaD September 2014. Last year, we held the 3rd Annual Meeting of DOHaD-Japan with the theme of “Memory of Fetal Organs and Preemptive Medicine” at the National Center for Child Health and Development, Tokyo, Japan, on July 25-26, 2014. At this meeting, 254 Japanese DOHaD researchers joined together to discuss exciting cutting edge research in Japan and abroad. It was our pleasure to have the International Society President, Professor Mark Hanson give a plenary lecture.
