Message
As we face the arrival of a hyper-aging society, it is an urgent requirement to establish a culture of facilitating healthy longevity, in which aged people can maintain their health and find a meaning for living towards the ends of their lives. Our department, therefore, aims to create longevity-promoting health science as a new field of preventive medicine by integrating sports medical sciences, aging biology, oncology, and dietetics.
