The RIKEN BNL Research Center was established in April 1997 at Brookhaven National Laboratory.  It is funded by the Rikagaku Kenkyusho (RIKEN, The Institute of Physical and Chemical Research) of Japan. The Center is dedicated to the study of strong interactions, including spin physics, lattice QCD and RHIC physics through the nurturing of a new generation of young physicists.
