|Welcome to the Institute for Biogenesis Research
The IBR was founded in September of 2000 with the opening of a new research facility on the University of Hawaii at Manoa campus.
The institute was built in honor of one of the university's most distinguished scientists, Dr. Ryuzo Yanagimachi, whose forty year career included so many significant advances in reproduction that they are too numerous to mention, here.
The IBR's purpose was to attract a group of scientists to develop a world class center for the study of reproductive biology built on Dr. Yanagimachi's work. During the next seven years, seven new faculty were recruited, and the expertise of the IBR now spans a broad range of reproductive biology.
