Cancer Research Institute
Conquers metastasis, recurrence, and drug resistance to overcome stubborn cancer through the comprehensive approach organized into four distinct research programs: Cancer and Stem Cell, Cancer Microenvironment, Cancer Molecular Target Exploration, Cancer Therapeutics Development, to be complemented by the Innovative Cancer Model Research Center.
Nano Life Science Institute (WPI-NanoLSI)
Aims to bring about dramatic advances in the life sciences field and lead to the establishment of a new research field, “Nanoprobe Life Science” by creating the world's first nanoprobe technologies for direct observation, analysis and manipulation of intracellular and cell-surface nanodynamics.
Advanced Manufacturing Technology Institute
Develops next-generation on-demand manufacturing technologies by combining two research fields and five divisions: “Design optimization using computational intelligence” and “Digital twinning and simulation” in the Design field, and “Metal additive manufacturing,” “Innovative material and structure,” and “Composite materials and fabrication” in the Manufacturing field.
Advanced Science Research Center
Promotes interdisciplinary research, through utilization of animal experiments, genetic modification including genome editing, radioactive isotopes, imaging, genomics, proteomics, and other analytical instruments. The facilities provide support for the state of the art technologies and deep knowledge of the fields.
Advanced Preventive Medical Sciences Research Center
Promotes research on practicing “Personalized Prevention”, which includes from pre-primary prevention to tertiary prevention by exhaustively analyzing and evaluating the characteristics of individuals and the environment in both education and research.
Advanced Research Center for Space Science and Technology
Conducts innovative research and development of satellites and instruments, and promotes outstanding achievements in Astronomy, Astrophysics, and Sun-Earth Space Science. Advanced Research Center for Space Science and Technology (ARC-SAT) is pursuing the "Kanazawa University Microsatellite Project."
