Inaugural issue of 'Toyohashi University of Technology e-Newsletter' launched



Toyohashi Tech's quarterly e-Newsletter offers news and views from one of Japan's most dynamic science and technology based universities: Founded in 1976, Toyohashi Tech is a vibrant modern institute with research activities reflecting the modern era of advanced electronics and engineering.

This inaugural of the Toyohashi Tech e-Newsletter includes an interview President Yoshiyuki Sakaki--internationally renowned molecular biologist who led Japan's International Human Genome Project--about his ambitious plans on enhancing the university's research and education infrastructure.

One of Sakaki's major initiatives has been the launch of the Electronics-Inspired Interdisciplinary Research Institute (EIIRIS)--Toyohashi Tech's new flagship research complex formally opened on 1st October 2010. "The aim of EIIRIS is to produce world-class innovative research," says Sakaki. "To do this we are bringing together ambitious young researchers from diverse fields to collaborate on pioneering new frontiers in science such as brain/neuro-electronics as well as tackling some of the major issues mankind faces today: issues such as environmental changes and aging societies."
