Fellowship grant for JSPHO 2012

Invitation to Asian colleagues,

On behalf of the Japanese Society of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology (JSPHO) and the Japanese Society of Pediatric Oncology Nursing (JSPON), it is our pleasure to invite Asian friends to the 54th Annual Meeting of the JSPHO and the 10th Meeting of the JSPON.

We sincerely thank the international community for their warm sympathy and supports to Japan and Japanese people following the disaster of March 11, 2011. We have lost many things because of the disaster, but we could obtain very important things; reunion and friendship with the world, especially Asian countries.

JSPHO, therefore, decided to make our annual meetings more open to Asian countries as follows;

  1. Plenary lectures, symposia and workshops will be in English.
  2. Oral presentation by Asian doctors or nurses will be scheduled in workshops.
  3. Travel awards will be presented to young investigators (younger than 40 years old);
    100,000JPY to oral and 50,000 JPY to poster.

Yokohama is a truly international city. The harbor was opened 150 years ago, and there are many historical and modern spots to be worth for visit.

We hope you will enjoy the meeting.
