The Frontier Molecules Group (FMG) in MANA-NIMS has been established in this April, 2016. In FMG, we develop novel functions and phenomena based on our original, unique molecules. In this group web page, we publish our latest information regarding research and others. If you have interests about us, please freely contact us. In addition, we are happy to take JSPS postdocs and Internship students, thus please inform us in advance if you consider to apply them.
