Share |

The aim of the four-year Doctoral Degree Program is to equip graduates from the School of Medicine Medical Course (or, in other cases, completers of the Master’s Degree Program or the Doctoral Degree Stage I Program) with practical ability in high-level medical research, enabling them to contribute to the ceaseless advance of medicine. The Program covers a wide range of research fields, including genome and gene science, molecular and cell biology, neuroscience, immunology, cancer science, regenerative science and social sciences. Students learn the most up-to-date methodology and research techniques, and research the mechanisms of life phenomena, development of new therapies and drugs, methods of disease prevention, and so on. This Program features collaborative graduate study with Yokohama National University, the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA), the National Institute of Radiological Sciences and RIKEN, to further advance our research.
