About JSWH

Welcome to the Japanese Society for Wound Healing.
The Japanese Society for Wound Healing was established as a small study group for wound healing in 1971 before becoming an academic society adopting our present name in 2000, followed by being authorized as a general incorporated association in 2013.
Our research theme covers various fields, not only the clinical medicines considered traditionally as related to wound healing but also the latest topics ranged from nursing, basic science, veterinary to pharmacy and businesses.
We take advantages of these broad ranges of our members’ specializing fields with great cooperation to achieve our goals to contribute to the development of wound healing research to apply to clinical stages.
We very much appreciate your interests to our activities and look forward to working together.
