  • About the Society:

    In October 1995, the group was first formed in Korea as the "Korean research group of inherited metabolic disease". It was officially launched in May 2000 as the "Korean Society of Inherited Metabolic disease (KSIMD)". KSIMD was established to support the exchange of information and knowledge, joint research on inherited metabolic diseases (IMD), domestic and foreign cooperation, and academic publications. KSIMD publishes regular journal, JOURNAL OF THE KOREAN SOCIETY OF INHERITED METABOLIC DISEASE (JKSIMD) (https://acoms.kisti., twice a year and conducts active academic activities. KSIMD consists of about 340 members. KSIMD actively participates in ICEIM meetings on a regular basis. KSIMD has maintained a close relationship with JSIMD (Japanese Society for Genetic Metabolic Diseases), with exchange speakers participating in regular academic meetings every year.


Membership of the Society is open to all interested in and willing to support the aims of the Society.
