Japanese plant biologists have provided the first molecular evidence that when plants are in combat with environmental stressors they are less able to battle invading pathogens.
31 Oct 2008
RIKEN scientists have developed a method for trapping and manipulating antimatter that could be key to solving one of the universe’s biggest mysteries.
24 Oct 2008
Substrate-induced strain can be used to switch an organic superconductor into an insulator that responds to the application of a voltage
17 Oct 2008
Two RIKEN researchers, Yasunobu Nakamura and Jaw-Shen Tsai, have jointly won the prestigious 2008 Simon Memorial Prize for their ground-breaking contributions to the development of low-temperature physics, in particular quantum computing.

New man-made materials could produce unique chaotic motion in electron beams
22 Jun 2008
Members of the press are invited to the Press Conference on Occasion of the Signing of a Cooperative Agreement between UNESCO and Keio University on June 26.
08 Apr 2008
The two universities conduct collaborative researches in a broad range of fields, including organ transplantation, regenerative medicine, medical robotics, and genetic diagnosis technology.
18 Jan 2008
The RIKEN Plant Science Center in Yokohama hosted an international symposium on November 20 that focused on the use of African plant resources. The symposium was held under the auspices of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science and the Japan Science and Technology Agency.
