Professors in the CLR have a variety of research interests and publish widely. Some of them have their own labs and supervise undergraduate and/or graduate students there, while others carry out their research in the classroom or in other venues. Professors in the CLR have a proven track record of successful grant applications at the national, prefectural, and university-internal levels.
Various sources of funding exist for CLR professors and we have been very successful at obtaining funding at all levels: (1) funding at the national government level - a.k.a. "kakenhi", (2) funding at the Fukushima prefectural level - a.k.a "kenzaidan", and (3) funding available internally at the U of Aizu - "Competitive Research Funding".
