Okayama University selected as an additional MEXT ‘Translational Research Network Program’ research support site

On September 5, 2014, Okayama University was selected as an additional research support site for the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT)'s ‘Translational Research Network Program’.

This program supports translational research, applying the results of core research in life sciences into practical medicine. It seeks to form an organizational structure to create Japanese-led innovative pharmaceuticals, medical equipment and related technologies based on a comprehensive process from core research to practical realization.

Under the title of the ‘Next Generation Translational Research Support Site for Extending Healthy Life Expectancy’, Okayama University will establish a translational research site able to meet diverse needs in areas such as medicine, dentistry, and nursing care appropriately. It will also focus on research and development in new medical fields created because of Japan's aging society.
