General Information

The Japanese Society for Pigment Cell Research (JSPCR), established in 1984, is a scientific society dedicated to those individuals interested in various aspects of pigment cells. The purpose of our Society is to promote the development of research on pigment cells in a broad sense and the exchange of information among its members, as well as members of the international pigment community. To realize this purpose, the Society has been responsible for various activities including the holding of scientific meetings, supporting the publication of the Journal Pigment Cell & Melanoma Research, interchange with our sister societies, the European Society for Pigment Cell Research (ESPCR), the PanAmerican Society for Pigment Cell Research (PASPCR), and Asian Society for Pigment Cell Research (ASPCR) and the publication of the JSPCR newsletter.
