Cryobiofrontier Research Center

HOME > Introduction


The Cryobiofrontier Research Center (CRC) was established to study various biological phenomena that occur under low temperature conditions using molecular and cell biological approaches. We further aim to develop a research and educational center that can lead the world in the field of Thermo-Biosystems.

CRC consists of four research divisions

1. Division of Developmental Control
2. Division of Cold-Adaptation Biology
3. Division of Systems Thermobiology
4. Division of Molecular Genetics of Cellular Response and Signaling

Distinct aspects of cryo- and thermobiology are studied in each division.
