Research activities at Research Center for Nuclear Physics (RCNP), Osaka University, are presented with a particular focus on natural science research using the cyclotron accelerator facility. A brief introduction to the azimuthally varying field (AVF) and ring cyclotrons, west-south (WS), muon science innovative channel (Mu-SIC) and exotic-nuclei (EN) beam lines, as well as the high-resolution Grand Raiden (GR) and large acceptance spectrometers are given. By showing two recent experimental studies on the structure of light nuclei using the GR spectrometer and the EN beam line, the important role of RCNP as a leading nuclear physics facility is highlighted.
