To contribute to the ultra-aged society by original research in biological sciences and medical research, with the aim of sustainable development
In order for Japan to take the lead in the world as a mature aged society, it is essential to promote the country's own biomedical research. The Institute for Biomedical Sciences brings together researchers from the School of Medicine and the Faculty of Agriculture of Shinshu University, located in Nagano University which is noted for healthy longevity, and conducts biological sciences and medical research utilizing their strengths to the maximum extent, with the aim of contributing to the ultra-aged society. To realize this objective we construct multi-disciplinary projects through cooperation with 4 research departments, in order to find and apply knowledge that lies at the boundary regions between disciplines. It is also an objective to nurture practical and excellent young researchers through international collaboration, university collaboration, and industrial liaison research, and to produce superstar researchers that are active on the world stage. The Institute for Biomedical Sciences has taken off with a big dream to bring to the world unique research from across different fields, and we ask the cooperation of everyone to enable us to make significant leaps forward for the ultra-aged society.
