JP Tower Museum INTERMEDIATHEQUE


Notice on the Opening of the Special Exhibition “The Dawn of Modern Medicine in Japan: From Dutch Medicine to German Medical Science”

2014-02-03

   In March, the JP Tower Museum INTERMEDIATHEQUE (IMT) is opening the special exhibition “The Dawn of Modern Medicine in Japan: From Dutch Medicine to German Medical Science.”
   The medical specimens conserved both by the Medical Museum of the Graduate School of Medicine and Faculty of Medicine and by the Medicine Section of the Research Materials Department of the University Museum were in part shown in the context of the special exhibition The Archaeology of Science, held in autumn 1997 at the Yasuda Auditorium to commemorate the 120th anniversary of the University of Tokyo. However, by completing this corpus with the Miyake family collection issued from the illustrious family of doctors and conserved by the Research Department of the University Museum, the present exhibition publicizes for the first time in its entirety the heritage of modern Japanese medicine in its nascent stage.
   The present exhibition is held in conjunction with the 78th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Japanese Circulation Society, and provides a unique opportunity to present the traces of the birth of modern medicine in Japan, not only to medical researchers in and outside Japan, but also to the general public.
