Project for Developing Innovation Systems : Creation of innovation centers for advanced interdisciplinary research area program

Innovative Techno-Hub for Integrated Medical Bio-Imaging

This initiative was designed to promote innovative research on "biomedical imaging integrating molecular probes" -a practical technology sought by medical care facilities- through the collaborative efforts of Kyoto University and Canon, Co., Ltd. The project's purpose is to commercialize research findings in fundamental science in the form of diagnostic imaging modalities in fields of clinical medicine. This project was launched as part of the formation of a Center for Creating Innovations in Advanced Integrated Technology, financed by a 2006 Special Coordination Fund for Promoting Science and Technology (MEXT).
