1. History and Purpose

The RIC, the medical division was originally established as The Central Buildings (The former first Hospital buildings) of Radioisotope Experiments in 1960. The present experimental facilities was newly built in 1970 and called The Radioisotope Center, Nagoya University School of Medicine.
The staffs, researchers and students of mainly the School of Medicine or University Hospital are working for researches.
The Radioisotope Center promotes research and education using radiation such as radioisotopes and X-rays. The Center manages radioactive materials and X-ray equipments, provides training in safe handling, and conducts basic research on the application and safe handling of radiation.
