Asian Society for Mitochondrial Research and Medicine - ASMRM
Thank you for the greetings. I am very happy to learn that MiP2005 Conference was a great success. I hope that I will be able to make some contributions to this Society in the future. I just brought 9 graduate students from my lab to attend the Third Annual Meeting of Asian Society for Mitochondrial Research and Medicine (ASMRM), which was held in Tokyo on December 15-17, 2005. More than 150 scientists participated in that important international scientific meeting of mitochondrial research and medicine. At the Council Meeting of the Society, I succeeded Professor Hong Kyu Lee to serve a 3-year term as the President of the ASMRM (2005-2008). I look forward to working closely with you and other members of the Mitochondrial Physiology Society in the future.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Dear Drs. Gnaiger and Takahashi:
Thank you very much for the wonderful progress in the communication between two societies, through you two. ..
I just checked out the Mitochondrial Physiology Society homepage and it is really wonderful. It is also so nice to see that ISOTT-2006 information is listed.
I wish you wonderful holidays!!!
