iCeMS (Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences) is a newly established international research center at Kyoto University under the World Premier International Center [WPI] Initiative of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology (MEXT) of the Japanese government. It aims at creating the interdisciplinary fields of meso-control, based on the atomic and molecular interactions occurring in the scale of 5-100 nm, as the cells have designed themselves during evolution, integrated with cell science, with a special emphasis on pluripotent stem cells (iPS + ES cells).
