RIKEN Centennial

Yuichi Obata, Ph.D.
Yuichi Obata, Ph.D.
Director

RIKEN was established in 1917 as a private foundation and will be marking the centennial in 2017. In 1913, Dr. Jokichi Takamine, one of the most distinguished and leading scientists of Japan during the Meiji era, asserted that the world was moving away from mechanical industry and toward scientific industry, and urged Japan to establish a national research institute for the study of "pure science".

To realize this objective, Viscount Eiichi Shibusawa, a prominent businessman and industrialist, served in a leadership role to establish the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research (RIKEN) with the launching of fourteen laboratories including those of Drs. Hantaro Nagaoka (atomic physics), Umetaro Suzuki (chemistry), and Kotaro Honda (material science). Funds were granted by the imperial family, with subsidies by the government and donations from the private sector. RIKEN was the first research institute in Japan to appoint female scientists. In the years before World War II, RIKEN commercialized its inventions and established many private firms in a scheme similar to what we would now call venture companies, known at the time as the "RIKEN Konzern." This group was dissolved after the World War II but some of the individual companies still remain active, such as Ricoh Co. Ltd. and RIKEN VITAMIN Co., Ltd.

After establishment as a private foundation, RIKEN became a private corporation in 1948 under the name Scientific Research Institute Ltd. (KAKEN). In 1958 RIKEN became a public corporation and in 2003 an Independent Administrative Institution. Finally, in 2015 it was designated as a National Research and Development Institute. Currently Japan's largest and most prestigious research institute in physics, chemistry and life science, RIKEN maintains world-class research infrastructure and offers state-of-the-art research from basic science to applied fields. The research infrastructure includes bioresource, the SPring-8 synchrotron, and supercomputer facilities used by researchers inside and outside Japan.

On April 1, 2015 Dr. Hiroshi Matsumoto (former president of Kyoto University) started his term as the president and at the same time RIKEN was designated as a National Research and Development Institute. President Matsumoto has set forth "the Initiative for Scientific Excellence" shown on the next page. RIKEN personnel, including those of the BioResource Center (BRC), are determined to meet their responsibility and expectation to the public, and to realize the president's Initiative.

The RIKEN BioResource Center (BRC) was established in 2001 and has been collecting and offering bioresources under the three principles "Trust", "Sustainability" and "Leadership". We have been engaged in collection, preservation, quality control, and distribution of bioresources, namely mouse strains, Arabidopsis, Brachypodium distachyon, cell lines of humans and animal origin, microorganisms and genetic materials derived from these bioresources, which are indispensable for R&D in Japan. We mainly collect bioresources developed in Japan with the objective of becoming a unique center in the world. Furthermore, we have been selected to serve as the core facilities for the National BioResource Project started by the Ministry for Education Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) in 2002 (from 2015 administrated by the Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development, AMED) while collaborating with other institutes providing 24 other types of bioresources.

With fifteen years of operation, BRC has been recognized as an international hub for bioresources. In fiscal year 2015, we provided 15,372 bioresources to 2,179 institutions worldwide (Japan and 49 other countries). 10% of BRC bioresources is contributed for academic papers and 1% is used for patent applications.

One of the most important elements of the scientific method is the reproducibility of experimental results. BRC places the highest priority on reliably providing authentic materials ensuring experimental reproducibility.

As a facility providing infrastructure on a global scale, RIKEN BRC aims to contribute by assisting in the expansion of the life sciences, helping to improve our quality of life and welfare in our society, and sustainable development of human race. As we engage in these activities, we ask for the continued support and understanding of the research community and general public.
