Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Chiba University have jointly established Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Chiba University International Cooperative Research Center (SJTU-CU ICRC) at both campuses in Shanghai, China and Chiba, Japan on July 8th, 2011. We bring together faculty, researchers, and graduate students from both universities to conduct cutting-edge academic researches and university-industry collaborative R&D. We also promote fostering of young talented researchers and international academic research interactions.

Our aim is to bring inspiration and innovation to bio-robotics and medical engineering by exploring highly-diverse physical phenomena of biological systems. We also formulate international interdisciplinary education and research centers for biologically inspired engineering.

The SJTU-CU ICRC currently consists of three divisions: System Biomechanics Division, Biorobotics Division, and Biomedical Engineering Division. We conduct interdisciplinary educations and researches ranging from basic research to applied research and development through organic interactions between the three divisions. We expect to expand our research area to broader field in the future.
