The purpose of the Department of Pharmacy is to cultivate advanced pharmacists (medical practitioners) who are full of humanity and have a thirst for research, and who can contribute to advancing healthcare based on the principle of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences of "protecting the health of human beings through molecular medicine."

Research Groups & Research Areas

  • Drug Discovery Science

    The genes and proteins involved in diseases have been uncovered. Today, the goal of drug discovery research is to create new drugs also from theoretical approaches utilizing genome information and computer science in addition to the conventional techniques of synthetic chemistry.

    Higashi(K) Research Group / Higashi(T) Research Group / Makino Research Group / Takahashi Research Group / Yamashita Research Group / Yasumoto Research Group

  • Environmental / Sanitary Pharmacy

    Preventing diseases and promoting health are two important missions of pharmaceutical science. Environmental / sanitary pharmacy is a traditional pharmaceutical field of scientific study into human health from a broad perspective encompassing the atomic / molecular level and reaching up to the global environment. On a foundation of nutritional science, food hygienics, public health, toxicology, and environmental hygiene, we continue to contribute to disease prevention and health promotion.
