Toward the world-class research center

Research Department

Within the Research Department, the central body of the Institute, there are three research cores: Cancer Research Core, Innovative Integrated Bio-Research Core, and Future Society Creation Research Core. Also, each core consists of multiple units which promote interdisciplinary research to open new fields of scientific inquiry. New disciplines and differentiations are often created from collisions and confluences between variety of different academic fields and different cultures. Researchers, belonging to each research core and each research unit, have graduated from distinctive universities and faculties. Therefore, they promote influential research in society through collisions and confluences. In addition, prominent researchers inside and outside Japan are taking part in InFiniti as Research professors (Invitation Type) and young Principal Investigators are active in InFiniti.
