Welcome to the Homepage of SAM Council

On behalf of the Council for SAM Research, I offer my hearty congratulations on the opening of the homepage (English version) of the Council, in addition to the Japanese version opened in 1999. I hope this homepage is utilized effectively by investigators and improved to be more useful and convenient to meet users’ demands and expectations, contributing to the advancement of biogerontological research, particularly SAM research by providing valuable information to investigators.

On the occasion of the opening, I express my gratitude to the secretary members of the Council, particularly Dr. Keiichi Higuchi of Shinshu University School of Medicine for his continuous efforts and the members of the Department of Medical Information Sciences, Shinshu University School of Medicine for their technical support.
