Cell Biology Center
This center aims to investigate the structure and function of cells through the observation and hands-on manipulation of cells, and to use this improved understanding in the creation of cells with unique functions. The unit will elucidate the fundamental principles of cells through world-class research employing state-of-the-art techniques and ultimately will contribute to next-generation cell engineering, human health and the treatment of diseases.
Solution Research Center for Advanced Energy Systems
The AES Center aim to establish advanced energy systems to realize stable and environment-friendly energy utilization by taking advantage of existing social infrastructures related to energy. The Center promotes and creates research projects to find solutions to the problems faced by communities and industries through open innovation involving industries, government, and local municipalities.
Advanced Research Center for Social Information Science and Technology (ASIST)
The Advanced Research Center for Social Information Science and Technology (ASIST) aims at solving social problems by utilizing Information and Communication Technology (ICT). ASIST conducts research and reports the findings to the government, targeting the establishment of safe and secure logistical information platforms, by which members of the public are able to access their own personal data managed by governmental organizations, medical facilities, and other institutions.
Future of Humanity Research Center
For the first five years, the Future of Humanity Research Center’s activities will be centered on the concept of rita — the Japanese word for altruism. Research areas will range widely from politics, the economy, and religion to AI, the environment, and the universe. Valuing encounters with researchers and experts in various fields, we will avidly extend our reach and open up the field of rita-ism. Our methods involve a flexible approach unique to Tokyo Tech that includes experiments and producing works in addition to methods traditionally employed by the humanities and social sciences such as bibliographic surveys and fieldwork.
