About MNRC

The Molecular Neuroscience Research Center (MNRC) was founded in 1989 as the Molecular Neurobiology Research Center. In April 1st, 2016, the center was renewed as the Brain Disease Research Organization - Molecular Neuroscience Research Center (MNRC), The MNRC, composed of Basic Neuroscience Research Unit, Translational Research Unit and Clinical Neuroscience Research Unit, aims to integrate basic and clinical medicine. In addition, SUMS appointed Dr. Douglas G Walker, outstanding professor in Arizona State University, USA, to be a special contract professor at the MNRC in order to develop international collaborative studies.  Intractable neurological diseases including dementia are increasing in aging societies, in Japan and elsewhere. The MNRC continues its global cutting-edge research; strengthens ties to local community; promotes industry-academia collaboration and develops the skills for research leadership and the medical specialist competence, in order to find solutions for intractable neurological diseases including dementia.
