Schull Institute's 6th Annual

Invitational Conference

Our Annual Invitational Conference is a binational event and corresponds with our binational exchange program. Hosting of the conference alternates between the United States and Japan. This is a living forum for demonstrating The Schullian Way and guides the mentoring ethos of the Schull Institute.

Theme for 2025 Conference entitled "Song Among the Ruins"

This year, our annual meeting will focus on research topics that Dr. William Jackson Schull initiated and expanded upon throughout his life: 

  • “Children of Atomic Bombs”

  • “Health Impacts of Ionizing Radiation from Atomic Bombs to the Fukushima Accident”

  • “Friendships between the US and Japan” that he discussed in his work, “Song among the Ruins.”
