Message from the Director

The Advanced Medical Research Center (SENTANKEN) of Yokohama City University(YCU) was established in 2006. The assignment of SENTANKEN is to facilitate advanced medical research associated with diseases such as cancer and lifestyle-related diseases. SENTANKEN is focused on basic researches in the field of genomics, proteomics and cellomics, as well as translational researches, which can fill the gap between basic and clinical researches, and promotes not only intramural collaboration but also between government, industry and academia.

Our goal is to make an attractive YCU that can contribute to the community by delivering the research outcomes of our basic and clinical researches promptly to the citizens of Yokohama and by connecting these activities for the revitalization of industries in Yokohama.
