Since 2019, OIST and Keio University have been collaborating in various ways: initially with the School of Medicine, accepting research interns, and hosting a series of showcase talks to learn about each other's research.​ The International Research Summer Camp is planned to be held at OIST for Keio undergraduate medical school students as a part of our efforts to strengthen our educational collaboration. The summer camp is a valuable opportunity for undergraduate medical students to experience hands-on basic research, under the guidance of outstanding researchers from around the world in a global and interdisciplinary environment.
