2011/10/25/Prof. Montagnier visit Japan again for lecture on "present" status of Preventive Medicine. (June 21st, 2011)

Although there was a decrease in the number of celebrated scientists visiting Japan after the earthquake, Prof. Luc Montagnier, president of World Foundation Aids Research and Prevention, the winner of 2008 Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology, and Dr. Gerald Salama, who is known as an expert in preventive medicine visit Japan to make some lectures.
The lecture meeting "Present Status and Future Prospective of Anti-Aging Medicine", on June 21, 2011 at the Maison franco-japonaise, Ebisu, Tokyo is one of them. It was cohosted by the French Embassy in Japan and the Maison franco-japonaise, in cooperation with French Chamber of Commerce in Japan and "Heart for Japan Project" of Osato Research Institute.
Prof. Montagnier was concerned about the children who have lost their parents in the earthquake and tsunami in Tohoku regions in Japan, and asked Mr. Hayashi, secretary general of WFARP Japan Office, if there was anything they could do for the children. Then, they decided to make donation of 1,000,000 yen for Foundation 'Ashinaga (Daddy long legs)' who works for educational support of orphans through "Heart for Japan Project" of Osato Research Institute and raise extra donations from the audiences at the meeting as well. The fund will go toward construction of the "Tohoku Rainbow House" for the orphans.
