For Joint

The National Research Center for Protozoan Diseases has been designated by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology as an international joint research center for the control of protozoan diseases. We are promoting comprehensive research on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of protozoan diseases in cooperation with universities, research institutes and international organizations in Japan and abroad to contribute to not only the control of protozoan diseases in livestock but also to the development of the international livestock industry. To accept a wide range of researchers who conduct research on protozoan diseases in Japan and abroad and further promote activities as a joint usage/research center, the Center invites applications for joint research every year.
