Molecular science targets all kinds of molecules and their assemblies, and aims to elucidate the origin of specific properties and functions based on their structural information. Since its establishment in 2006, the Japan Society for Molecular Science (JSMS) has contributed to the development of science and culture through the promotion of research and education in molecular science. Currently, JSMS has over 1,500 individual members and 20 supporting members. The Annual Meeting of JSMS, held in every September, is the largest event organized by the JSMS, with more than 1,000 participants and 600–800 presentations. Participants can obtain the latest information on molecular science through presentations of the latest research results, lively discussions, and equipment exhibits by related companies and supporting members. It is also an important opportunity for young researchers and students to demonstrate their daily efforts and achievements. The 17th Annual Meeting will provide new opportunities to interact with high school students. We sincerely look forward to your active participation.
Tatsuya Tsukuda, The 9th President of JSMS
