Background of the NanoLSI Program 

The Nano Life Science Institute (WPI-NanoLSI), Kanazawa University, Japan was chosen on October 6, 2017 to become another center in MEXT's World Premier International Research Center Initiatives (WPI Centers).

Takeshi Fukuma, the Director of the WPI-NanoLSI, developed the world's first liquid-environment frequency modulation atomic force microscope (FM-AFM) with atomic resolution, enabling observation biomolecules, three-dimensional distributions of hydration, and flexible surface structures with subnanometer resolution at solid-liquid interfaces. Furthermore, Toshio Ando, a principle investigator of the WPI, is internationally renowned for developing the high-speed atomic force microscopy (HS-AFM) and dynamic imaging of proteins with HS-AFM.

Based on these advanced technologies, NanoLSI plans to develop 'nanoendoscopic techniques' by combining the world's most advanced bio-scanning probe microscopy (SPM) and supramolecular chemistry. This combination will allow for not only the imaging of surfaces and interior of live cells but also the analysis of metabolites and nucleic acids and the manipulation of cell activities. By introducing multi-scale simulations to these studies, NanoLSI aims to construct models for the mechanisms underlying molecular and cellular functions including understanding of cancer-specific abnormalities of cells by comparing normal and cancer cells. Through these studies, NanoLSI aims to achieve nanolevel understandings of various life phenomena and thereby establish a new research field termed "nanoprobe life science".

Within this framework the NanoLSI established the 'NanoLSI Fellowship Program' to initiate international collaborations and disseminate knowledge of SPM techniques.

About Kanazawa University 

As the leading comprehensive university on the Sea of Japan coast, Kanazawa University has contributed greatly to higher education and academic research in Japan since it was founded in 1949. The University has three colleges and 16 schools offering courses in subjects that include medicine, computer engineering, and humanities.

The University is located on the coast of the Sea of Japan in Kanazawa - a city rich in history and culture. The city of Kanazawa has a highly respected intellectual profile since the time of the fiefdom (1598-1867).
