University of Malaya Vice-Chancellor Visits President NAGATA


On January 30, 2024, Vice-Chancellor Prof. Dato' Seri Ir. Dr. Noor Azuan Abu Osman from the University of Malaya, along with three others, visited our Tokyo Campus. They had discussions with President Kyosuke NAGATA, Vice President Jun IKEDA (Global Affairs), Executive Officer Osamu OHNEDA (Director-General, Bureau of Global Initiatives), and Prof. Maki TSUJIMURA, Director of our Malaysia Branch Campus Preparation Office.

During the meeting, they exchanged views on the progress of preparations for the branch campus in Malaysia, scheduled to open in September of this year, and future efforts to strengthen education and research cooperation between the two universities.

On the same day, the delegation also visited our Tsukuba Campus where they observed experiments related to control mechanisms of photosynthetic metabolism in microalgae in the laboratory of Professor Iwane SUZUKI (Institute of Life and Environmental Sciences), and inspected joint research on electron microscopy with Hitachi High-Tech Corporation, led by Associate Professor Yoichi YAMADA (Institute of Pure and Applied Sciences).

They also toured the indoor pool's circulatory tank under the guidance of Professor Shigetada KUDO (Institute of Health and Sport Sciences) and visited the Olympic and Paralympic Exhibition Hall where they had a conversation with Professor Emeritus Sawao KATO, who has won 12 medals in men's gymnastics at the Olympics.

Expectations are high for further collaboration between the University of Malaya and our institution in the future.
