imec (Interuniversity Microelectronics Center), which is a collaborative organization for industry and academia, is the world-leading R&D and innovation hub in nanotechnology and digital technologies. Its motto is "Research development ten-years ahead of the industry." imec was founded by 70 professors at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. Collaborative research topics include microelectronics, information communication systems, nanotechnology, organic electronics, bioelectronics, and printed electronics. Recently, electronics research has expanded in the fields of information and agriculture. To date, there are over 2,000 researchers, and 60–70% are imec employees. In addition, Ph.D. students (approximately 200) assist as researchers. The remaining 30–40% (about 550) are researchers from participating corporations. These 550 researchers represent more than 600 corporations from 62 countries worldwide. Nearly all major electronics corporations in Japan participate. The total annual research budget is approximately 40 billion yen, of which only 5 billion yen is from public funding (around 16% of the total budget). The rest is provided by participating corporations. On November 16, 2011, Osaka University was the first Japanese university to enter into a comprehensive cooperation agreement with imec under the leadership of Professor Kazuhiko Matsumoto and Specially Appointed Professor Mototsugu Okura from Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research, Osaka University. For nearly ten years, Osaka University has been participating in collaborative research in large projects in the fields of medical engineering and printed electronics, hosting/attending international conferences, providing/participating communication opportunities for researchers, and sending students and employees for short- and long-term study abroad programs.

This is an overseas joint research branch office set up under the 21st Century COE Program "Towards Creating New Industries Based on Inter-Nanoscience" (the 2002 to 2007 academic year) located at the Institut de Chimie Physique in CNRS (Université Paris-Sud Orsay). It houses a variety of quantum-beam emitter devices, including an electron beam source, gamma beam source, and a range of laser sources. In particular, a pump-prove device, which combines ELYSE, a picosecond electron beam accelerator, and a femtosecond titanium sapphire laser beam, is the only device in the EU capable of an ultrafast measurement of the induced reaction by an electron beam (radiation beam) and a light beam in extremely precise time units of picoseconds and femtoseconds. Therefore, this is actively utilized to detect quantum beam-induced active species and elucidate reaction mechanisms. Frequent and continuous research collaborations with Osaka University have resulted in dynamic analysis of quantum beam irradiation reactions induced in materials such as high-temperature high-pressure fluids and biomolecules, and development of new functional materials with abilities such as shape-controlling and nanoparticle generation using a quantum beam. The ongoing international joint research encompasses a wide range of fields from the basics to applications.

Osaka University has a Philippine Satellite Office (the Office) at De La Salle University, which is a prestigious university in the Philippines. De La Salle University is conveniently located in Manila. These two universities have a close partnership. Not only does De La Salle University send many excellent exchange students to Osaka University, some of its faculty are graduates of Osaka University. Moreover, the two universities conduct collaborative research and collaborative student education under the double degree program agreement. At the annual Computational Materials Design Workshop (CMD-WS) jointly held by the two universities, a basic lecture and a demonstration of computational material design foster researchers in this field and recruit exchange students.

The Office has a very important role in these activities. It provides information about the student exchange program with Osaka University to the students of De La Salle University. Additionally, the Office supports faculty members of Osaka University visiting De La Salle University for collaborative research or workshops. The teleconference system - equipped with a large display - is used for oral and written examinations for admission into the student exchange program, which is conducted in cooperation with the faculty members of De La Salle University. It also allows for lively discussions about research and online live lectures delivered by Osaka University.

The Office is managed by the Osaka University Graduate School of Engineering, but is open to members of other faculties. We hope that the Office is utilized to strengthen the partnership between the two universities.

Mahidol-Osaka Center for Infectious Diseases (MOCID)

Research Institute for Microbial Diseases

Mahidol-Osaka Center for Infectious Diseases, Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Mahidol University, Bangkok, 10400, Thailand.

Due to climate change, a serious global threat is the expansion of epidemic areas of mosquito-borne infectious diseases in tropical regions. In cooperation with the Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Mahidol University, MOCID conducts basic research to develop diagnostic test kits for dengue fever and Chikungunya fever, which are mosquito-borne infectious diseases, as well as a vaccine for dengue virus. Furthermore, it is committed to educating graduate students of the Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Mahidol University, fostering junior researchers, and producing degree recipients.

Development of diagnostic test kits

MOCID is engaged in creating monoclonal antibodies against dengue virus and Chikungunya virus as well as the development of diagnostic test kits for these viruses using antibodies. The performance of these kits has been evaluated globally in cooperation with hospitals and research institutes in Thailand, India, and Belgium.

Development of a vaccine for dengue virus

Although a licensed vaccine is available for dengue virus, it may increase the risk of worsening the condition in vaccinees who were dengue antibody-negative because the cross-reaction between different serotypes of dengue viruses may produce antibodies that enhance the dengue virus infection. MOCID is conducting research to develop a new ideal dengue vaccine with an altered amino acid sequence that produces neutralizing antibodies but not infection-enhancing antibodies.

RCC-ERI conducts research within the framework of the Japan Initiative for Global Research Network on Infectious Diseases, which was launched by MEXT in 2010 and transferred to the Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development in 2015. It has established the Divisions of Bacterial Infections and Viral Infections to conduct studies mainly on tropical infections under the Department of Medical Sciences, Ministry of Public Health of Thailand.

Division of Bacterial Infections

Although enteric infections caused by various species of bacteria, viruses, and protozoa are common in Thailand, their pathogens and pathogenic factors have yet to be well elucidated. Therefore, the Division of Bacterial Infections conducts studies in patients with severe diarrheal diseases in Thailand, such as cholera, to establish a method to quickly detect their causative microorganisms and to develop prophylactic treatments. Through these studies, the Division aims to facilitate early detection and rapid response to the emergence and spread of new strains of cholera.

Division of Viral Infections

The Division of Viral Infections conducts studies on viral enteric infections and mosquito-borne infections, which are repeatedly found in Asian countries, including Thailand and Japan, in cooperation with the researchers of the Department of Medical Sciences, Ministry of Public Health of Thailand. For example, it is engaged in studies to understand the mechanism of severe infectious diseases such as dengue fever, Chikungunya fever, and the Zika virus, which have been present in Thailand since ancient times as well as to elucidate their pathogenicity. Furthermore, to determine whether pandemics of noroviruses, which cause enteric viral infections, can be predicted, the Division conducts molecular epidemiological studies of pandemic strains of noroviruses confirmed in Thailand and investigates the mechanism of their subclinical infection.
