It is my great pleasure and honor to organize the 59th Annual Meeting of Japanese Society for Inherited Metabolic Diseases and the 15th Asian Symposium of Inherited Metabolic Diseases. The meeting will be held from October 12 to 14, 2017, in Kawagoe, Saitama Prefecture.

“From clinical to fundamental medicine, and from fundamental to clinical medicine” is the theme of this meeting. Along with this theme, we focus our program from 2 aspects.
Fundamental medical research which base from the result of clinical medicine such as citrin deficiency and clinical medicine research which base from the fundamental medical research results to applied to patients. This will focus on gene therapy and the clinical trial research which I involving on how to make the best use of the fundamental research results to overcome the “valley of death” Besides these, the topic of autophagy and mitochondrial diseases will also be included in the program.

Kawagoe is known as “Little Edo (Koedo)” as it is a city of history retaining the culture and aroma of Edo. The famous “Kawagoe Festival” < http://www.kawagoematsuri.jp/index.html> will be held from October 14 for 2 days, it would be just nice to join this festival after the Meeting to experience the culture of Koedo
