RIKEN BioResource Research Center (BRC®)

Toshihiko  Shiroishi(Ph.D.) Director: Toshihiko Shiroishi (Ph.D.)

As a core center for bioresources not only in Japan but also worldwide, we (BioResource Research Center) are implementing projects to accurately grasp research trends, respond to social and research needs, and collect, preserve, and distribute the world's highest quality of bioresources. We are also promoting research that contributes to the utilization of bioresources. In implementing these projects, we will prioritize the development of bioresources and related information produced by Japan's cutting-edge research and carry out quality control in accordance with international quality management standards to ensure genuine bioresources with reproducibility.

Furthermore, we are collecting and preserving bioresources which are the key to research and development related to the COVID-19 virus and releasing pertinent information as this is currently a pressing social issue. In addition, we are also conducting technical training and dissemination activities to develop human resources involved in the bioresource projects and transfer this technology to the research community.
