Osaka University Key Developments
NIMS, Kyocera, Osaka University, NEC, Sumitomo Seika and NanoWorld Jointly Launch MSS Alliance
Oct 13 15
Six organizations, including NIMS, Kyocera, Osaka University, NEC, Sumitomo Seika, and NanoWorld jointly launched the MSS Alliance on September 25, 2015, with the purpose of establishing a de facto standard for odor analysis and sensor systems employing an ultra-small sensor element called the Membrane-type Surface stress Sensor (MSS). This initiative is intended to accelerate practical use and popularization of such systems. MSS is a sensor element jointly developed in 2011 by NIMS MANA Independent Scientist Genki Yoshikawa, late Dr. Heinrich Rohrer, and Ecole polytechnique federale de Lausanne (EPFL). It is a versatile, ultra-small, super-high-sensitive sensor element capable of measuring diverse molecules in the atmosphere and liquid, including odor-causing gas molecules and biomolecules such as DNA and proteins. Unlike the conventional cantilever-type sensor, the MSS can be miniaturized as it does not utilize laser light. In addition, its performance has been dramatically improved as is evident by the fact that its sensitivity is approximately 100 times greater than the conventional sensor. Expectations are high for the MSS to contribute to the development of sensor systems capable of identifying factors that are key to the enhancement of people's lives and medical care, and converting such factors into information useful to humans and equipment.
Osaka University and Astellas Sign Joint Research Agreement for Cell Therapies
Feb 4 15
Osaka University and Astellas Pharma Inc. have signed an agreement to establish a joint research chair, for developing fundamental technologies for next-generation cell therapies. Under the agreement, the joint research chair of Department of Translational Cell Therapy has been established within the Graduate School of Medicine/Faculty of Medicine, Osaka University and will be tasked with developing the new technology platforms required to advance practical use of cell therapies, which are expected to be the next-generation therapies. The department will operate a laboratory facility in the Bio Systems Building of the Graduate School of Frontier Biosciences. The primary research theme is development of technologies to make transfused/transplanted cells highly functional and to enhance their therapeutic effects through optimization of the sources of transfused/transplanted cells and the cell processing technologies, according to specific medical conditions. Other research themes will include analyses of immune responses induced by and the pharmacokinetics and safety of transfused cells for R&D, aimed at realizing practical utilization of allogeneic cell transplantation therapy. The joint research chair will be retained for a term of three years from January 2015. This joint research chair will address establishment of fundamental technologies for cell therapy research, early realization of clinical studies, and investigation of potential cell therapy candidates through collaborative research conducted by experts and researchers from Osaka University and Astellas in the fields of regenerative medicine and cell therapy. Joint research chair is a program for establishing a joint research chair at a university through collaboration between the university and one or more representatives of the relevant industry. This program is aimed at facilitating excellent research outcomes by focusing on sound objectives through collaborative research activities on common themes undertaken by researchers from the university and the sponsoring private company, which operate the program as equal partners.
