Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Science
The Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences was established in April 2003 by partially integrating the faculties of the Institute of Molecular Embryology and Genetics (IMEG) and the Institute of Resource Development and Analysis (IRDA). This was preceded by the creation of the Faculty of Medical and Pharmaceutical Sciences. Thus, graduate students are educated by teaching staff from the Faculty of Life Sciences (founded in January 2010 by re-organizing the Faculty of Medical and Pharmaceutical Sciences), IMEG and IRDA. The school takes advantage of the strength of each faculty member to provide a great number of educational programs by combining pharmaceutical sciences and medical fields such as bioethics, genetics, embryology, cardiovascular, metabolism, and translational research. These unique educational programs further reinforce the foundation of basic pharmaceutical knowledge acquired during undergraduate studies.
The Graduate School aims to cultivate pharmaceutical researchers and advanced pharmaceutical specialists who can act independently and provide leadership in a wide variety of pharmaceutical fields involving the creation of medicinal products, biomedical research, and clinical/public health administration.
