History of RIKEN CLST

Collaboration with international research institute

Our center is actively promoting international collaboration research. In particular with Karolinska Institutet and Upsara University in Sweden, we have built a cooperative relationship for many years even before CLST established.

Karolinska Institutet is one of the largest medical universities in Europe and signed a comprehensive collaborative agreement with RIKEN in 2004.
SciLifeLab is the national research institute of molecular life sciences operated jointly by four universities as Karolinska Institutet and Uppsala University.
