About PROS

The Proteo-Science Center (PROS), Ehime University was established with an objective of understanding life with the help of cutting-edge wheat-germ cell-free protein synthesis technology, and discovering novel treatments for overcoming intractable diseases such as cancer, infectious, and autoimmune diseases. The Center encompasses 3 departments and 12 divisions.

The "Department of Proteo-Research" comprises the divisions: Cell-free Sciences, Malaria Research, Biomolecular Engineering, Super-biomolecular Sciences and Proteo-Drug-Discovery Sciences and focuses on protein science research. The "Department of Proteo-Medicine" comprises the divisions: Molecular Parasitology, Cell Growth and Tumor Regulation, and Proteomics Research and focuses on cellular functional proteomics. The "Department of Proteo-Innovation" comprises the divisions: Integrative Pathophysiology, Pathology, Immune Regulation and Bio-imaging and focuses on the in vivo functional protein research.

The Center strives to draw upon expertise from different field, conduct cutting-edge research and thereby advance scientific understanding and develop novel treatments for innumerous intractable diseases.
