Biological sciences contribute to the health and welfare of humans through understanding the biological activities that constitute living systems, including human beings, at the molecular and genetic levels, and through overcoming intractable diseases such as cancer, immune diseases, infectious diseases, and neurological diseases. The Graduate School of Biological Sciences implements high-level, specialized education that extends across the fundamentals of biological sciences, centering on cell biology, immunology, molecular biology, oncology, neurobiology, molecular medicine, regenerative medicine and biotechnology. The aim of the graduate school is to convey research results to the world as a base of knowledge on biological sciences, as well as to foster human resources who can carry out research activities from multifaceted perspectives, without being limited to the conventional specialized areas. Accordingly, students from across the world that have learned the fundamentals of science in differing fields are expected to gather here. This graduate school can be considered as a systematic endeavor that proposes new ideals for Graduate School education.


1. The objective of the master's course is to foster human resources who possess advanced specialized knowledge and research capabilities, and who are inspired to understand the molecular mechanisms of living organisms with a broad perspective that supports rapid developments in biological sciences.
2. The objective of the doctoral course is to cultivate sophisticated abilities for carrying out independent research activities related to specialized fields and the ability to contribute to the development of culture by adding new knowledge to the academic standards of the past through original research.
