ŸNotes on infectious disease control related to the novel
coronavirus (COVID-19) are posted on the University website.


*gResearch Close-Uph rebooted
Introducing some of the fascinating research happening 
at Kyushu University and the professors leading it, 
gResearch Close-Uph on the Kyushu University website has been rebooted.


*Kyushu U jumps to 124 in QS rankings:
  Up eight places since last year, the university moves closer
  to breaking into the top 100
In the QS World University Rankings 2021 announced on June 10,
Kyushu U jumped up eight spots from last year to number 124.


*The 2nd NTU-KYUSHU COLLOQUIUM deepens university
  relationships through online seminars
The 2nd NTU-KYUSHU COLLOQUIUM was held on Monday, June 15,
through online seminars to promote further interaction with NTU,
an important partner institution at the university level located
close to Kyushu Ufs office in Taipei.


*Online ENCORe session on New Lifestyles in the Post Covid-19 Era
The first online ENCORe (Networking for Co-creating Research)
session was held on June18, 2020.



*Memory impairment in mice reduced by soy derivate
  that can enter the brain intact:
  Ingestion of the protein fragment improved working and
  long-term memory in mice treated to simulate Alzheimerfs disease
In a study that could help one day give a literal meaning to food
for thought, researchers from Kyushu University have reported
that a protein fragment that makes its way into the brain after
being ingested can reduce memory degradation in mice treated
to simulate Alzheimerfs disease.


*Unique molecular sponges for liquid separation:
  Researchers separate molecular mixtures by selectively absorbing
  larger molecules over smaller ones into nanoscale pores using a
  process driven by depletion force
Collaborative research between Kyushu University and Keio University
sheds new light on a mechanism to separate molecules by selectively
soaking them up in the nanoscale pores of a plastic-like film.


*Design of insect-inspired fans offers wide-ranging applications:
  New design method for highly compact deployable structures is based
  on the sophisticated folding of earwig wings
According to an article published in the Proceedings of the National Academy
of Sciences of the United States of America this week,
researchers have recreated the complex, highly compact folding mechanisms
found in the wings of earwigs with an origami-inspired geometrical method,
which has potential applications across different fields of engineering.
