Foundation: 1969

Mission: The Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Gerontology (TMIG) takes a multidisciplinary approach to the study of aging and can be divided into three fields of research. In field one, TMIG is involved in foundational scientific research into mechanisms of aging and age-management. In the second field, the institute is dedicated to the research and development of practical techniques for health management, disease prevention, and diagnostics. In the third field, TMIG implements epidemiological and social surveys concerning the social welfare and healthy long-life of elderly. All three fields are integral to the scientific understanding of the aging process and realizing healthy long-life and well-being for individuals and the aging society.
