Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences
The Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences consists of a five-year master's program and doctoral program, and a four-year doctoral program.
The Master's Program and Doctoral Program in New Drug Development and Life Science intend to nurture independent researchers and engineers through the acquisition of more advanced cutting-edge knowledge and skills and engagement in creative high-tech research. Specifically, the students are encouraged to develop their ability to solve problems in the two-year master's program, and to set assignments as well as to solve problems in the three-year doctoral program.
The Doctoral Program in Medical Function and Pharmaceutical Science intends to nurture researchers and leading pharmacists who have clinical research ability and problem solving skills and personnel who possess advanced research ability and are engaged in public health administration and medical and pharmaceutical education.
Five-year Master's Program and Doctoral Program in New Drug Development and Life Science
The students acquire the newest knowledge and skills for research and development of drugs and the
most-advanced knowledge and skills for the analysis of biomolecular functions in response to the rapid progress in life science. Furthermore, through the systematic linkage with the related disciplines, students receive a comprehensive education and conduct creative high-tech research in the promotion and evolution of new drug development and life science.
Three-year Doctoral Program in Cooperative Major in Nanopharmaceutical Sciences
Starting from the academic year 2013, the Graduate School of Cooperative Major in Nanopharmaceutical Sciences (doctoral program), established jointly with Nagoya Institute of Technology, promotes education research in the field that fuses pharmaceutical sciences and engineering.
Four-year Doctoral Program in Medical Function and Pharmaceutical Science
The students acquire advanced knowledge and skills that are fundamental for leading pharmacists in order to cope well with sophisticated and complicated diagnoses and medications; and who can play a central role in the proper use of drugs, the reduction of their side effects, the prevention of drug disasters, and the management of investigational new drugs. Furthermore, students conduct advanced research systematically linking the fundamentals medical function and pharmaceutical science and clinically related fields.
