Research Departments

This institute has three core departments for scientific research: Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering, Department of Material Science, and Department of Radiation Life Science and Radiation Medical Science. Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering is comprised of Division of Nuclear Engineering Science, which has eleven research laboratories for nuclear engineering research, and auxiliary Reactor Utilization Center.

Department of Material Science is constituted by Division of Quantum Beam material Science which comprises six research laboratories for material research. Department of Radiation Life Science and Radiation Medical Science is comprised of Division of Radiation Life Science, having three research laboratories, and Radiation Oncology Research Laboratory.

These departments conduct progressive studies in various research fields, such as nuclear physics, nuclear engineering, radiation utilization, beam science , nano-technology, material science, life science, and radiation oncology etc., and these serve as the basis for the collaborative researches done by the researchers coming from other universities and institutes.

All research laboratories cooperate in educating students of five Graduate Schools of Kyoto University: Graduate School of Engineering, Graduate School of Science, Graduate School of Energy Science, Graduate School of Agriculture, and Graduate School of Medicine.
