Profile of the Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences

Now that we have published our first few articles, I thought this might be a good time to tell you a little more about the Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (WPI-iCeMS). Biomaterials Science is a collaborative venture between RSC Publishing and the iCeMS, which is based at Kyoto University, Japan.

The iCeMS is part of the Japanese government’s World Premier International Research Center (WPI) Initiative, launched in 2007 to forge a new model for scientific institutions, helping Japan lead the world in a broad range of leading-edge research. By merging materials science and cell biology, both fields of great strength at Kyoto University, the iCeMS is creating a new cross-discipline, supported by an advanced research environment and infrastructure that are unprecedented in Japan. The institute’s focus is on two main areas: stem cell science & technology and mesoscopic science & technology. The institute’s work draws from the life sciences, chemistry, materials science, as well as physics, constantly expanding the boundaries of technological innovation.
