About IMSUT as "International Joint Usage/Research Center"
The Institute of Medical Science, the University of Tokyo (IMSUT) is a university-attached research institute of life science and medicine in Japan with world-class research achievements, and has an affiliated hospital specializing in experimental medicine and translational medicine.
We conduct research on fundamental mechanisms and their applications to infectious diseases, cancers, and other specific diseases. Our main fields of study include infectious diseases, immune mechanisms, cancer signaling and metastasis, genome analysis, stem cell regenerative medicine, animal disease models etc.
Supported by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, we have been promoting the Joint Usage/Research Center Project since FY2010. Moreover, on 13 November 2018, IMSUT was authorized as the "International Joint Research Center for Promoting Basic and Applied Research and Implementing Translational Research", and we are making a new start by expanding our activities worldwide.
We aim to improve medical science research standards at the international level, to increase new academic and scientific knowledge in medical science, to promote research and development of innovative medicines and medical technology, and to foster medical researchers and promote their wider exchange.
In addition, we are working toward the creation of new interdisciplinary research areas by opening up our research infrastructures and technologies, such as the latest results of genome analysis and regenerative medical technology, to all researchers both in Japan and abroad.
