NAOJ is the national center for astronomical research in Japan. It aims to develop a stronomy and related sciences by promoting the open use of its state-of-theart observation facilities such as the Subaru Telescope, organizing various jointresearch programs, and encouraging versatile international cooperation.

National Institute for Fusion Science [NIFS]

The LHD maintains high temperature plasmas in steady state.

NIFS conducts collaborative research in the basic science of high-temperature plasmas and fusion engineering. Our collaborators from all over the world conduct leading projects in Large Helical Device (LHD) experiments and computer simulations in order to realize “a sun on the earth,” controlled fusion, which is a new, safe, and environmentally friendly energy source.

National Institute for Basic Biology [NIBB]

The Medaka Bioresource Facility provides various strains and mutants of medaka to researchers worldwide.

The earth is filled with living organisms exhibiting various forms and demonstrating shapes and behaviors adapted to diverse environments. NIBB, in collaboration with outside researchers, studies the essential phenomena underlying the characteristics and abilities that animals and plants have acquired over the long course of evolution.

National Institute for Physiological Sciences [NIPS]

NIPS’ goals are to uncover the mechanisms by which the human body functions. This is the basis of medical science and links to clarifying the pathophysiology of various diseases. Presently our focus is on brain science as the main part of “body and mind” research. Furthermore, as a national center of physiological research, the institute provides facilities and research staff for collaborative studies to scientists from universities and research institutes.

Institute for Molecular Science [IMS]

Stacked column-like polymer with novel functions

The aim of IMS is to investigate fundamental properties of molecules and molecular assemblies through both experimental and theoretical methods. Since its inception, IMS has made its facilities available to the worldwide scientific community, with a policy which has fostered many joint programs involving IMS scientists.
