We also work with the neighboring Ishikawa University Cooperation Business Incubator i-BIRD to proactively promote research and development in collaboration with local companies. Our institute conducts extremely comprehensive research from the genetic level, right up to issues dealing with environmental problems on a global scale, gathering significant external attention.
