IMRAM History

March 1941 Research Institute of Mineral Dressing and Metallurgy, Tohoku Imperial University was founded.
January 1943 Research Institute for Scientific Measurements, Tohoku Imperial University was founded.
January 1944 Chemical Research Institute of Non ‐ Aqueous Solution, Tohoku Imperial University was founded.
May 1949 These three Institutes were reorganized as research institutes affiliated to Tohoku University.
April 1991 Chemical Research Institute of Non ‐ Aqueous Solution was reorganized as Institute for Chemical Reaction Science.
April 1992 Research Institute of Mineral Dressing and Metallurgy was reorganized as Institute for Advanced Materials Processing.
April 2001 Research Institute for Scientific Measurements, Institute for Chemical Reaction Science, and Institute for Advanced Materials Processing were restructured and consolidated as Institute of Multidisciplinary Research for Advanced Materials (IMRAM).
