Institute of Industrial Science (IIS), the University of Tokyo, is a research institute covering almost all the areas of engineering disciplines. Each of more than 110 faculty members – professors, associate professors and lecturers – has his/her own laboratory and more than 1,000 researchers come to IIS from inside and outside of Japan. They are carrying out various research – from fundamental research to applications – which opens future life. The research field of IIS is very multidisciplinary and covers almost all the areas of engineering disciplines from micro and nano scales such as quantum levels to large scales such as the global level and space.
Founded in 1892 as “The Institute of Infectious Disease”, the Institute of Medical Science with its own affiliated research hospital is Japan's foremost research institute for medical life science. Focusing on infectious disease and cancer, our mission is to translate basic research findings directly to medical therapies.
