Center for Frontier Research is an incubation center to simultaneously develop new human resources and new research fields.
Promising young scientists conduct research as principal investigator (tenure-track associate professor) to explore new frontiers in genetics and related areas, taking advantage of NIG’s research infrastructure and various support systems.
Those who obtained tenure will establish new research divisions in NIG to lead the new fields they created.
