Overview of US-Japan Cooperative Medical Sciences Program
The U.S.-Japan Cooperative Medical Sciences Program (USJCMSP), one of the oldest bilateral programs in the history of NIH, was established in 1965 (under a U.S. Presidential-Japan Prime Ministerial level agreement) to strengthen Japanese research capacity and address issues of public health importance in the Asia Pacific region. The program continues to maintain its value as a unique tool to foster U.S., Japan, and Asia Pacific Region research collaboration. For more information visit:
- Collaborative research teams consisting of investigators from (1) the U.S. and Japan, or (2) the U.S., Japan, and other Asia Pacific countries, are eligible to apply.
- On each application either the Japanese sub-team or the U.S. sub-team (or both) must include as a Principal investigator (PI) an early-stage or female investigator.
