ResearchCollaborations

Collaborations are an integral part of research at the BDR. The Center has a range of different schemes in place to further promote collaborative research within BDR as well as with external organizations, including industry.

BDR Center Projects

BDR currently has  six ongoing center-wide projects. These projects are intended to promote collaborative research across disciplines within the Center, taking advantage of the strength of our researchers who work in diverse research fields.

This project aims to develop DECODE technology to estimate, predict and manipulate the cell states by observing and analyzing images of changing cells using state-of-the-art measurement technology and artificial intelligence.

This project is building a pipeline for the social implementation of organoid technologies. They promote organoid research on self-organization, standardization and maturation of organoids, and applications for regenerative medicine and drug screening.

Torpor is an active hypometabolic state in mammals. The QMIN project will drive torpor research and aim to translate our knowledge of torpor to applications to benefit human society.

This project aims to develop technologies to approach complexes and multilayered structures of biological macromolecules and to bridge the gap in knowledge between molecules and cells to further advance our understanding of life.

This project will develop various automation technologies ranging from experimental robotics, data-processing workflow, and any other topics relevant to scientific projects such as automated experimental designs and hypothesis generation.

This project aims to elucidate the mechanisms underlying major, non-linear stage transitions during the life cycle, identify new transitional phenomena, and develop novel theories and technologies to analyze the transitions.

Collaboration Centers

RIKEN actively promotes the transfer of its scientific achievements into commercial products through partnerships with industry. Based on proposals from companies, “Collaboration Centers” are set up within RIKEN to tackle mid- or long-term projects to create innovations and foster human resources with experience working in an environment that blends the cultures of RIKEN and industry.

All RIKEN Research Project

This project explores aging in brain function, immunity, tissue homeostasis, cells, metabolic regulation, etc., across multiple scales, to strive for an integrated understanding of aging unfolding within the body. This will in turn help create a sustainable aging society by contributing to the building up of knowledge that will form the basis of new technologies, including medical care. (This project has ended in March 2022.)
