Koichi Kato
Director, ExCELLS

What is life? The Exploratory Research Center on Life and Living Systems (ExCELLS) was established in April 2018 to address this fundamental question. ExCELLS develops novel approaches for observing biological entities, deciphering hidden information, and creating living systems to improve our understanding of their nature. Moreover, ExCELLS promotes collaborative, interdisciplinary research involving investigators exploring organisms living in extreme environments.
