With the hope of creating a society where people can achieve their full potential, Yuya Kajikawa, professor at the School of Environment and Society, is working to establish a methodology for innovation.
Mary A. Voytek, director of the Astrobiology Program at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) headquarters, has joined the Earth-Life Science Institute (ELSI) as its executive director.
There were aliens with long legs to cope with very wet planets, aliens with hard skin to withstand intense UV radiation from planets close to a star, and even aliens with six eyes because they need to look scary to their predators, among others. Rather, these aliens were created during an event at ELSI during the Tokyo Tech Festival.

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology have imaged live T cells to reveal the role of CLIP-170 in T-cell activation, a critical process in the immune response.
Scientists at Kyushu University and Tokyo Tech in Japan have developed a technique that enables analysis of DNA-protein interactions using very small numbers of cells, ranging from 100 to 1,000. Their method could capture previously unexamined epigenomic information, facilitate biomarker discovery and open new avenues for precision medicine.
Scientists at Tokyo Tech examined the mechanisms behind the resistance at the electrode-electrolyte interface of all-solid-state batteries. Their findings will aid in the development of much better Li-ion batteries with very fast charge/discharge rates.
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology produced subnano-sized metallic particles that are very effective as catalysts for the oxidation of hydrocarbons. These catalysts can be as much as 50 times more effective than well-known Au-Pd bimetallic nanocatalysts.
I had never dreamt of working at a science institute surrounded by the best scientists in the world who are at the forefront of unlocking the fundamental questions concerning the origins of life. That is why it was really quite dreamlike when I was employed as the first philosopher at ELSI.
