The International Society for Gravitational Physiology (ISGP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to furthering international cooperation and scientific advancement in the fields of gravitational physiology and space medicine.

We are now hosting the 40th Annual Meeting of ISGP and “Space Life Science and Medicine at Nagoya University Noyori Conference Hall on May 26 (Sunday) to 31 (Friday) in 2019.

This conference will be integrated with the Japan Association of Physiology, Japan Association of Aerospace and Environmental Medicine, and Japan Aerospace Biological Society.

The International Space Station now provides a platform for long-term microgravity exposure, allowing study of responses to long-term exposure to the spaceflight environment. Among other topics, this conference will examine the effects of long-term residence on the International Space Station, including orthostatic hypotension, osteoporosis, muscle atrophy, the influence of cosmic radiation on living systems, and the influence of the closed environment on the psychological situation of humans. Countermeasures to these responses and their usefulness in ground medicine will also be discussed. This proposal medical interventions and biological responses to establishment of a Lunar base and exploration class missions to Mars will also be topics.

The ISGP invites resarchers from all over the world to participate in this meeting..

Best regards

Satoshi Iwase, MD & PhD

Professor of Physiology, Aichi Medical University School of Medicine
