Public call for collaborative research and research meeting for fiscal year 2019 (Start of the public call: October 2018)

 Since having been recognized as a Joint Usage/Research Center for the Multi-Stratified Host Defense System on April 1, 2010, the Medical Institute of Bioregulation, Kyushu University has been promoting collaborative research with researchers involved in host-defense studies. We have established two projects: (1)an instrument usage type project in which collaborative research is conducted using the multi-stratified levels of research facility infrastructure and the technology of this institute (a maximum budget of 500,000 yen, including travel and accommodation expenses, is distributed); and (2) a collaborative research type project (travel and accommodation expenses only) that aim at clarifying the host-defense system using the knowledge accumulated about host defense in this institute.
 We publicly call for research proposals for fiscal year 2019.
 In addition, we also call for proposals for research meetings that aim at information exchange and presentation of results among researchers involved in host-defense studies.
