Cultivation of Medical Practitioners Full of Humanity and a Thirst for Research and Drug Development Experts Who Can Lead Advanced Drug Development Sciences
The basic philosophy of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences is to cultivate medical practitioners and expert drug developers who possess the will to "protect the health of human beings through molecular medicine." The Department of Pharmacy aims to "cultivate advanced pharmacists who are full of humanity and have a thirst for research," while the Department of Medicinal and Life Sciences aims to "cultivate researchers who lead advanced drug discovery sciences." In other words, people who are full of intellect, with a sense of ethics and rich human qualities, who are leaders in pharmacy as a comprehensive bioscience, and who are committed to maintaining the health of human beings and conquering disease.
The two departments cooperate with each other to foster these kinds of human resources, and aim to contribute to the development of pharmaceutical sciences. In order to achieve this, the Department of Pharmacy and Department of Medicinal and Life Sciences are expanding life pharmacy, drug discovery chemistry, environmental / sanitary pharmacy, and medical/information pharmacy in a fused manner, using biology, chemistry, physics, and information science, which are common basic disciplines, as the foundation. The educational objective of this faculty is to raise human resources who will acquire specialized knowledge to be able to comprehensively understand life and molecular medicine, and who possess the capability to establish issues and resolve them.
