Division of Advanced Biomedicine

In April 2021, the Graduate School of Medicine launched the Division of Advanced Biomedicine as a new branch of the Medical Research Support Center in the Medical Innovation Center (MIC) building as a single-cell analysis unit equipped with state-of-the-art analysis equipment. The Division of Advanced Biomedicine was established to provide a drug discovery platform for proactive industry-academia collaboration in a wide range of fields, including drug discovery, in collaboration with the Kyoto University Hospital and the Graduate School of Medicine. Based on this Division of Advanced Biomedicine, exploratory research using target cells derived from clinical samples can be conducted by researchers from other departments and companies within the university on a collaborative basis through tie-ups with the affiliated hospitals and the Graduate School of Medicine, and is expected to be of great help in identifying drug targets and searching for biomarkers. As a result, we can expect the development of new research areas through cross-departmental collaboration in different fields, not only at the Kyoto University Hospital and the Graduate School of Medicine, and the dramatic expansion of industry-university-academia collaboration with organizations outside the university.

The Advanced Biomedicine Analysis Technology Office has three units: the Single Cell Seq Unit, the Imaging Unit, and the FACS/CyTOF Unit, and each unit manages and operates its own equipment.

This room will start its operation on August 2, 2021. The details of the operation will be updated here as soon as possible.
