Harris Science Research Institute

Science Building (Rikagakukan)

The study of science and engineering at Doshisha has a long tradition with origins traceable back to the “Harris Science School”. Joseph Hardy Neesima, who studied natural science at Amherst College, founded the school in 1890, believing that the promotion of science and engineering was necessary for Japan’s modernization. Building on this tradition, the Research Institute was established in 1959 to promote studies of basic science and engineering and its application, including mathematics, physics, astronomy, medical science, earth science, history of science and creative engineering.
The main areas of research recently have been in the fields of environmental, biomedical, and mathematical studies. The research findings are published in the Institute’s own bulletin which is widely distributed in Japan and abroad.
