Keio University

At Keio University, the Imai Laboratory, in the Department of Information and Computer Science (Faculty of Science and Technology), is doing three research projects to make communication easier.
Together with Dr. Cisotto, Associate Professor Ushiba, in the Department of Biosciences and Informatics, is working to reveal the mechanism by which newly acquired knowledge and information is transmitted and evolves among organisms with intelligence.
The Keio University Smart Network Research Center, which is led by Professor Naoaki Yamanaka in the Department of Information and Computer Science, is researching smart infrastructure using IT, in particular smart grids and next-generation power control networks.
Suzuki & Citterio Laboratory designs and synthesizes functional dyes that change color or produce light by reacting with a specific substance. It develops nano-sized functional materials such as particles and polymers, and develops sensing technology that utilizes fluorescent and luminescent molecules, providing imaging inside the body which had been impossible until now.
At Keio University, the Sugimoto Group, in the Faculty of Science and Technology, is doing research on augmented reality environments, which enable interactions to take account of user recognition and situations in the actual environment.
Professor Yoji Ohashi from KiPAS (Keio Institute of Pure and Applied Sciences) , together with Dr. Daisuke Inotani, is doing theoretical research on quantum condensation phenomena, primarily superconductivity and superfluid phenomena, where quantum interactions between particles play an important role.
At Keio University, the Nishi Laboratory, in the Department of System Design Engineering (Faculty of Science and Technology), is doing research on how far-reaching communication networks, primarily involving the Internet and various devices, could help to change society.
The Nakata-Saikawa Research Lab in the Department of Applied Chemistry at Keio University’s Faculty of Science and Technology has been conducting synthesis research targeting natural organic compounds with complex and unique structures, and has successfully synthesized abundantly varied ansa compounds that cannot be created in the natural world.
As part of a project to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Keio University’s Faculty of Science and Technology, the University has started an innovative research project involving the industrial, government, and academic sectors. This project is called the Keio Innovation Foundry, or KIF.

At Keio University, the Ryogo Kubo Laboratory, in the Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering (Faculty of Science and Technology), aims to help achieve a society that’s friendly to people and the environment from the viewpoint of infrastructure services. The Laboratory does research in the fields of control engineering, to enable systems to be operated freely, and information and communications engineering, to connect multiple systems through networks.
