Seirei International Research Conference 2019

Seirei International Research Conference 2019


Seirei Christopher University has exchange agreements with six universities and institutions of higher education overseas to carry out collaborative activities. We are also developing educational activities in close cooperation with five overseas universities and institutions. Students from many countries and regions have participated in international exchange activities at our university, and in so doing, developed mutual understanding and respect, cooperated with one another, and exchanged opinions. This has given them an international perspective on health, medicine, social welfare, and education.
Through this international conference, we hope to contribute to the international development of scholarship together with the above educational institutes, including in the field of research.

The Seirei International Research Conference 2019 to be held in February 2019 is aimed at introducing the research and clinical activities being conducted at each school and to promote future joint research and collaborations. The conference is a venue for researchers and clinicians to gather and share results from each other's work in different fields. We will make use of information and communications technologies to enable the remote participation of individuals from their country or region. As we hope to advance scholarship through this conference, we anticipate the participation of researchers and clinicians from institutions other than those participating in the university exchange agreement.


About the Conference

Dear Colleagues
It is with sincere warmth and welcome that I extend the first invitation to Seirei International Research Conference 2019, which will be held from February 21 to 22 at Seirei Christopher University in Hamamatsu, Japan.
Seirei Christopher University has six collaborating institutions. We have had so many memories and corporative activities with students, faculties and staffs through our friendships.

We will create new research activities and world with our partners.
We love humans, we love neighbors, and it should not be only our country but also it should be for any people in the world. We look forward to sharing research information as well as friendship.
