The RIKEN Center for Life Science Technologies (CLST) has two core purposes. One is to develop key technologies for breakthroughs in the medical and pharmaceutical applications of life science. The other is to conduct groundbreaking research and development for the next-generation life sciences.

RIKEN aims to promote research on biomolecules and into life science technologies, focusing on 3 areas of research: designing molecular structures at the atomic level, manipulating molecular function at the cellular level and tracing molecular dynamics at the whole-body level.

CLST comprises the Division of Structural and Synthetic Biology, the Division of Genomic Technologies, and the Division of Bio-function Dynamics Imaging, which will work together in this endeavor. Research and development programs will be carried out in collaboration with companies, universities, and international consortia, in order to disseminate the center's achievements to the global community.
