Aim and Background

The Research Institute for Nanodevice and Bio Systems was founded on May 1, 2008, aiming to develop the fundamental technologies necessary to achieve global excellence in electronic and bio integrated sciences for preventive medicine and ubiquitous diagnoses on early stages of illnesses in the future advanced medical-care society beyond the present information society. The research field includes Nanointegration, Integrated Systems, Molecular Bioinformation and Nanomedicine.

The forerunner of this institute was The Research Center for Integrated Systems which was founded in 1986 as a ministerial ordinance. The first center was reorganized after ten years and The Research Center for Nanodevices and Systems was established in May, 1996. The second center was reorganized after twelve years and The Research Institute for Nanodevice and Bio Systems was newly founded on May 1, 2008 with the faculty members of the Department of Semiconductor Electronics and Integration Science and the Department of Molecular Biotechnology at the Graduate School of Advanced Sciences of Matter as well as the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.
