The Pharmaceutical Society of Japan (PSJ) aims
to promote the development of pharmaceutical sciences among its
more than 20,000 members. Pharmaceutical sciences are based on physics,
chemistry, biology, and a wide range of life science fields. These
all contribute to the health and welfare of human beings through
the creation, production, supply, and prescription of medicines.
The Japanese have the longest life expectancy in the world. The
21st century will be the "life science era" in Japanese
society. In response to the great public need, recognition, and
expectations, the PSJ encourages its active members to make the
greatest possible contributions to all the pharmaceutical sciences.
