We are pleased to announce that our organization was restructured on January 1st, 2019.
Life science research has experienced an enormous development during the 34 years after the current research departments were established. Owing to this development, as well as the establishment of three research infrastructure centers, many of the research centers have lost the original missions they possessed at their conception. Now is the time to reconsider the organization of the institute, so that NIG can continue to play a leading role in the research on genetics.
NIG has decided to restructure its organization in order to better carry out the mission as an inter-university research institute: excellence in research, service to the research community, and fostering researchers of the next generation. This will allow NIG to present its functional structure to the research community, in leading frontiers in genetics and providing its research infrastructure.
