The Institute of Medical Science (Japan)

The Institute of Medical Science (Tokyo-daigaku Ikagaku Kenkyujyo 東京大学医科学研究所) is an ancillary establishment of Tokyo University. The Institute of Medical Science is successor to established in 1892, and is the foremost institute for medical and bioscience research in Japan. A research hospital is attached to the institute.
Kokuritsu Koshu Eiseiin exists in the same site.


  • 1892: Dainihon Shiritu Eiseikai fuzoku Densenbyo Kenkyujyo (Empire of Japan Private sanitation meeting attachment Institute of Infectious Diseases) was established.
  • 1899: It became national Institute of Infectious Diseases under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of the Interior.
  • 1914:It enters under the management of the Ministry of Education).
  • 1916:It becomes an ancillary establishment institute of Tokyo Imperial University.
  • 1967:Densenbyo Kenkyujyo (Institute of Infectious Diseases) was reorganized, then, Ikagaku Kenkyu-jyo (Institute of Medical Science) was established.
