Doshisha University was selected for the FY 2018 Private University Research Branding Project (Type B*), which was announced by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) on February 26 (Tues.), 2019. The initiative adopted this time is about establishing platform for integrated research and international base for research cooperation on how to extend healthy life expectancies using the background of space biomedical engineering. Receiving funding over three years from FY 2018 to FY 2020, we will promote our branding efforts for a five-year period until FY 2022.

*Type B: Research that contributes to the advancement of the Japanese or international economy and society and the progress of science and technology through the establishment of a cutting-edge interdisciplinary research hub

The Private University Research Branding Project is a MEXT grant program to support private universities, etc. in promoting their branding efforts centering on unique research activities under the leadership of the president of each individual university. For the FY 2018 Project, 20 universities (11 universities in Type A and 9 universities in Type B) were selected from among 157 applying universities by the Private University Research Branding Project Committee consisting of academic experts, as a result of comprehensive examination of details of the projects submitted and their implementation systems.

The Project for Active Life in Space Engineering and Medical Biology (represented by Prof. TSUJIUCHI Nobutaka from the Faculty of Science and Engineering), which functions as the core of this MEXT-designated project, was already set in motion in April 2018 as a Doshisha University base for advanced education and research, aiming to establish platform for integrated research and international base for research cooperation on how to extend healthy life expectancies using the background of space biomedical engineering.
