ABOUT IROAST

Organization

The figure below illustrates the basic configuration of IROAST and its four major research areas:

Nano Material Science covers a wide area including the development of organic functional materials such as graphen oxide nano-sheets, catalysts and metal materials. It also includes the development of innovative materials under extreme conditions.

Green Energy includes the development and utilization of renewable resources such as geo-thermal, water, and bio-mass.

Environmental Science covers a wide area including the protection and evaluation of hydrospheric and atmospheric environments, analysis of climate change, and protection of underground water and shallow sea areas.

Advanced Green Bio covers a wide area for interdisciplinary life sciences relating to chemical biology, molecular biology, medicine, pharmacy, agriculture (such as the development of drug delivery systems), micro-CT applications, informatics applications, and so on.
