About Japan Young Epidemiologists Network

*This page is under construction. Thank you for your patience and understanding*

Welcome to the website for Japan Young Epidemiologists Network (J-YEN)!

J-YEN has been the hub for early career epidemiologists in Japan, through the active communications including "nomunication". J-YEN has provided many opportunities of face-to-face meetings, seminars, workshops and so on since its establishment in 1996 to support and encourage early career epidemiologists. Currently, more than 250 members join in J-YEN as of August 2017.

At the 21st International Epidemiological Association, World Congress of Epidemiology 2017 (21 August, 2017 at Saitama, Japan), we held a session entitled with "Early career epidemiologists- current activity and future development-" with Early career epidemiologists in IEA. For more details, please visit the following page.
