  • 3D cell sheets formed via cell-driven buckling-delamination of patterned thin films

    July 20, 2021

    3D cell sheets formed via cell-driven buckling-delamination of patterned thin films
    Complex geometries such as folds and protrusions in various organs are formed by the wrinkling/buckling of flat epithelial sheets. This morphogenesis is considered to be triggered by mechanical instabilities between the epithelial sheet and the mesenchyme foundation, similar to that observed in non-living film-on-substrate structures. …

    Bayesian spectroscopy of synthesized soft X-ray absorption spectra showing magnetic circular dichroism at Ni-L3,-L2 edges
    We proposed a data-driven science study by Bayesian spectroscopy to analyze an X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) spectrum and magnetic moments. In Bayesian spectroscopy, model selection becomes available to estimate the number of spectral components by using Bayes free energy. …

Overseas Branch Offices

The JST overseas offices are strategically located to capture the latest science and technology trends in their respective regions, actively promote the global activities of JST-funded Japanese researchers and leverage global networks to enhance and internationalize Japan's S&T.

  • Paris Office

    We are JST's first-established overseas office, responsible for a wide range of countries within Europe and Africa. We negotiate and coordinate with relevant organizations and support the growth of JST's European operations, where science cooperation is often multi-layered and complex. We also play a vital role in transmitting local information back to JST headquarters, and are actively expanding our network of related organizations in order to improve Japan's S&T presence in Europe.
