Kyushu U. CCTR: The 6th Japan Medical Innovation Program (JMIP)


Kyushu University Center for Clinical and Translational Research (CCTR) is planning to hold the 6th Japan Medical Innovation Program (JMIP) in November 2017. We will recruit 6 young researchers from Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, The Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam to tour various facilities in Kyushu and the wider area of Japan. Travel expenses andaccommodations will be fully covered by the CCTR.

In 2014 the Kyushu University Center for Clinical and Translational Research (CCTR) established a program to develop collaborations and harmonization strategies for translational research in the Asia region.  The program used connections with academia, industry and government in Japan to act as hosts to talented medical innovators who can contribute to developing new innovations in the region. So far the CCTR has called 39 participants from 9 countries to take part in an intensive program to see the front line of medical innovation in Japan so that they may take the knowledge back to their countries and hopefully make fruitful collaborations between their institutions and the Kyushu University CCTR.

If you are a young researcher who is interested in medical innovation in Japan who would like to bridge future connections with your institution and Kyushu University, and if you have not had any experience with long-term stays in Japan, please fill out the application as detailed and we would be happy to hear from you.
