Japan-U.S. Science and Technology Cooperation Program:
Call for FY2011 Brain Research Programs
 
To whom it may concern 
 
The Japan-U.S. Science and Technology Cooperation Program is a research and development program operated jointly by the governments of Japan and the U.S. as part of the revised Japan-U.S. Agreement on Science and Technology, concluded June 20, 1988. The program is run according to the Guidelines on the Implementation of the Japan-U.S. Science and Technology Cooperation Program, as drawn upon January 6, 2001 by the Director Generals of Japan’s Science, Technology and Academy Policy Bureau, the Research Development Bureau and Research and the Development Bureau of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.
 
These guidelines also determine which administrative body will be responsible for each program on the Japanese side. The National Institute for Physiological Sciences, one of Japan’s National Institutes of Natural Sciences, is responsible for the planning and implementation of cooperative programs in brain research.
