The Graduate School of Life Sciences was established for the purpose of research and education in all aspects of life sciences, from the molecular level to individual and ecological levels. The educational programs are aimed at acquisition of correct views on nature and life by providing a well-balanced and diverse education in life sciences. The wide range of courses and research fields offered in the Graduate School of Life Sciences provides opportunities for collaborative study in various fields. It is expected that interdisciplinary collaborative studies will not only lead to the establishment of new science fields based on life sciences but also provide means to deal with and solve new problems that will arise in this century.
By providing such an educational and research environment, it is expected that the Graduate School of Life Sciences eagerly will nurture individuals who can apply the acquired intellect and means of new life sciences to sustain the global environment and improve human welfare.
