Collaborative Research

We welcome collaboations with academic researchers in universities and non-profit organizations. Please make a contact with Dr. Kazuyoshi Murata to start the collaboratioive research. We may offer some finantial supports in the institute's colabolative study program according to the agreements below.

Agreements for collaborative reseach

  1. The research theme is limited to academic subject. The results must be published as soon as possible.
  2. Publications resulting from the collaborative study program of NIPS must incldue an acknowledgement.
      Example: This study was supported by the collaborative study program of
           National Institute for Physiological Sciences.
  3. In the case our staffs sontribute to the reesrch project, you must include our credits in your publications.

Co-operative study by high voltage electron microscopy

The NIPS is equipped with the high-voltage electron microscope (1MV HVEM) specially designed for biological and medical specimens. If you have a proposal would be appropreate to use the HVEM, contact Dr Kazuyoshi Murata.
