Nara Institute of Science and Technology
Nara Institute of Science and Technology (NAIST) is a Japanese national university located in Kansai Science City, a border region between Nara, Osaka, and Kyoto. Founded in 1991, NAIST consisted of graduate schools in three integrated areas: information science, biological sciences, and materials science. In 2018, NAIST underwent an organizational transformation to continue research in these areas while promoting interdisciplinary research and education across traditional fields. With this new single graduate school organization, NAIST strives forward with the objectives of conducting cutting-edge research in frontier areas and training students to become tomorrow's leaders in science and technology. On this occasion, we will introduce the research and education in the Division of Biological Science.
We look forward to meeting enthusiastic students who are interested in the field of biological science and its interdisciplinary areas.
