Purpose of establishment：
Radioisotope Research Center, Tokushima University (on-campus cooperative education and research facility) was founded as a facility of ministry ordinance* by the Ministry of Education.
The Center started on April 1st, 2000, aiming to
improve rediation safety, education, and research.
The modern facilities of the Center support
radioisotope studies by scientists in the Josanjima
and Kuramoto campuses. Especially, it provides the
required facilities to perform radioisotopes research
at the highest level of safety for a large number of
scientists. Radioisotopes have become an important and
essential tool in modern biochemical studies, for
example, in genome analysis and post genome evaluation.
Therefore, the safe handling of radioisotope and the
education of the next generation of scientists and
physicians in the safe use of these materials is a
prerequisite for conducting present-day biomedical
research. We always strive to minimize external and
internal exposure, in order to maximize the benefits
from radioisotopes in extracting extremely useful
information necessary to advance the fields of
biochemistry and medicine.
