Thailand-IPR Project

Project overview

Groups in IPR have cordial relations with Thai research groups through activity of the Asian Pacific Protein Association (APPA). We have several international students from Thailand who are studying NMR spectroscopy or X-ray crystallography at IPR. IPR and School of Science, Osaka University, have the Inter-Faculty Academic Exchange Agreements with Institute of Science, Suranaree University of Technology (SUT).
