Welcome Message

The 10th ISTERH is an international forum for clinicians and researchers to exchange information regarding advances in trace element research. The theme of the ISTERH2013 is TRACE ELEMENT RESEARCH ON HEALTH and DISEASES.

The International Society of Trace Element Research in Humans (ISTERH) is a scientific society on various problems caused by trace elements, that was established by Drs. Prasad, Brewer, Okada, Tomita and some other big professors working on trace elements in 1984 and has been contributing to human problems caused by trace elements.

The program of ISTERH2013 will consist of invited lectures,
oral presentations and poster presentations.

We are pleased to invite you to attend the 10th ISTERH2013 that will be held in the Keio Hotel in Tokyo, Japan November 18 to 22, 2013. The ISTERH2013 will cover the recent advances in analysis of trace elements, metallomics, environmental problems of trace elements, genetic diseases and neurological disorders caused by trace element disorders.

Tokyo is a capital city where modern and traditional cultures of Japan are mixed together.
As you know, Sky Tower in Tokyo has just completed this year. Now it is the highest tower in the world.
Until around 100 years ago, we had closed our country and stopped the communication with foreign countries for 300 years. During the time we had incubated our own culture. Thus you can see our characteristic culture in Tokyo as well as in other districts. You will enjoy sightseeing of Tokyo area.

We look forward to welcoming you in Tokyo.
