Medical Research Institute Tokyo Medical and Dental University

The Medical Research Institute (MRI) of Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) is focusing to tackle the pathogenesis of intractable diseases and further develop measures to diagnose and treat the patients.


Since June 2009, MRI has been recognized as the Joint Usage/Research Program by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.


From April 2010, the MRI has been functioning as a Joint Usage/Research Center for Intractable Diseases with the help of researchers of the medical science society.


To further develop the Joint Usage/Research Center for Intractable Diseases, we provide opportunity for researchers worldwide to conduct the international joint research project with MRI researchers in one of the following forms.



(1) Applicants visit MRI and perform research in our facilities.

(2) Applicants ask researchers at MRI to analyze proposed project using bio-resources deposited in MRI.

(3) Applicants ask researchers at MRI to analyze proposed project using database deposited in MRI as a limited use.
