Tomonori Mizutani

I am a medical oncologist working at Kyorin University Faculty of Medicine, Japan.

I am also an executive officer of the Geriatric Study Committee of the Japan Clinical Oncology Group (JCOG), which the largest cooperative group in Japan. JCOG has conducted several clinical researches focusing on older patients with cancer, but there has been no formal policy. We have therefore established a JCOG policy for geriatric cancer research (Tomonori M. Jpn J Clin Oncol. 2019 Sep 30.). I handled several oncology trials in JCOG and have been acquiring knowledge and experience on geriatric oncology trials..

I am the national representative from Japan in SIOG, a member of the Cancer and Aging Research Group (CARG) and a member of the working group of geriatric oncology of the Japanese Society of Medical Oncology (JSMO).
