Three missions to uncover the mystery of sleep,
and to solve sleep-related social problems

[ Our Missions ]

  • 1. To elucidate the fundamental mechanisms of sleep/wake regulation
  • 2. To elucidate molecular pathogenesis of sleep disorders and related diseases
  • 3. To develop preventive majors, diagnostic methods, and treatments for sleep

IIIS sets 3 missions to advance research activities; (1) Elucidation of the fundamental mechanisms of sleep/wake regulation, (2) Elucidation of molecular pathogenesis of sleep disorders and related diseases, (3) Development of treatments for sleep disorders.

To accomplish the missions above, IIIS has established a highly ambitious and novel research field, “sleep sciences”, by integrating basic biology, experimental medicine and pharmaceutical science.

About labs

There are ten core labs and nine satellite labs in IIIS, covering various research fields e.g. molecular genetics, neuroscience, physiology, pharmaceutical science, human sleep physiology, etc. Those labs collaborate with each other to drive forward innovative sleep research.
