Asia Oceania Federation of Nuclear Medicine and Biology (AOFNMB)
Asia Oceania Federation of Nuclear Medicine and Biology (AOFNMB) was established in 1969 to promote nuclear medicine in Asia and Oceania. AOFNMB’s goal is the achievement of excellence in academic and technological fields of nuclear medicine in Asia Oceania region. AOFNMB congresses have been held every 4 years since the first inaugural congress in Sidney, Australia. Sites of previous congresses were Manila (Philippines), Seoul (Korea), Taipei (Taiwan), Jakarta (Indonesia), Kyoto (Japan), Istanbul (Turkey), Beijing (China), New Delhi (India), Jeju (Korea), and Yokohama (Japan) in order of the year. As a great leap for AOFNMB, 13th AOCNMB was held on May 10-12th, 2019, in Shanghai, China. The next AOCNMB will be held in Amman, Jordan, in 2021. We are expecting that many young physicians, technologists, and scientists who are not only in the field of nuclear medicine but also in various other fields will join the AOFNMB and create a future Asia Oceania NM network.
