World-class researchers are working on interdisciplinary studies of printeins – the key molecules of life – in the fields of chemistry, biology, physics, medicine and infomatics to reveal the “life” in the various scales from an atomic level to an individual level.
Joint Usage and Research Center for Proteins
Year166Cases※As of November, 2019
Since its foundation in 1958, IPR has been the “center of excellence” of protein science by managing joint-use large research facilities as well as providing cutting-edge protein science information to the world. Every year, more than 200 researchers visit and stay at the institute for their usage of our resources and we support protein science community by organizing various activities including “IPR Seminar”, which benefit over 1,000 researchers each year.
