The Department of Applied Biological Science is ahead of the rest of the country in integrating fields that cross over the various sectors of biological science, and cultivates human resources who have learned biological science for clarifying life phenomena over various levels, from microorganisms to higher organisms, as well as applied techniques that serve as the foundation for this biological science.
Research Groups & Research Areas
Cells are the basic units of all living beings. In this key area of the post-genome age, we comprehensively deal with the structure, substances and functions of cells, trying to understand the characteristics of living organisms - including proliferation, movements, biological defense, or information processing - from the perspective of cells.
Hagiwara Research Group / Kuchitsu Research Group / Maezawa Research Group / Nakamura Research Group / Nishihama Research Group / Sadaie Research Group / Wada Research Group
In this area, we try to explain the structure, functions, and workings of all living organisms, both animals and plants, by clarifying the structure, function and interaction of the molecules of which they consist, including genes and proteins.
Furuya Research Group / Hagiwara Research Group / Kamakura Research Group / Kuchitsu Research Group / Masaike Research Group / Nishihama Research Group / Sadaie Research Group / Wada Research Group
Living organisms are made of a huge number of chemical molecules, and the workings of life are based on a variety of chemical reactions. That is, life phenomena are substantially chemistry, and biochemistry is the area which tries to describe this in the language of chemistry.
Kuchitsu Research Group / Kuramochi Research Group / Masaike Research Group / Nakajima Research Group / Nakamura Research Group / Nishihama Research Group
This field tries to understand life phenomena by linking organic chemistry with biochemistry, on which these phenomena are based. This understanding is very important for students of the life science field.
Furuya Research Group / Kuramochi Research Group
In this field, we do not describe organic phenomena just as they are observed or measured, but uncover general regularities or principles behind these phenomena.
Masaike Research Group
The environment has affected the growth of living organisms, the living organisms have created another environment, and the other environment has caused an evolution into living organisms adapted to this new environment. In this area, we understand life phenomena and global environmental problems through the interactions between the environment and living organisms.
