The research subjects are to develop artificial catalytic systems that
can promote selective chemical reactions in cells leading to artificial
pseudo-life system and to establish new concept of medicine or curing
disease by using the artificial pseudo-life system.
One position is currently available for a top-level specialist (Postdoctoral fellow) who has much work experience in the field of molecular biology or biochemistry.
(Catalysis Medicine (Bio) Group Leader: Shigehiro Kawashima, Ph.D.)
