Graduate School of Frontier Biosciences, Osaka University


Admission Policy

The FBS aims to understand how life forms from simple elements, with the greater goal of creating new fields of research. Because the research here requires a wide range of skills and talent, we consist of faculty ranging from a wide variety of disciplines including biology, medicine, neuroscience, engineering, physics, and everything in between to cultivate ambitious, large-scale interdisciplinary projects.

Our five-year doctorate program gives students interested in the biosciences a multi-faceted approach to their research questions and a comprehensive education experience so that they can become leading researchers upon graduation. Similarly, because a number of adjunct faculty have connections to companies and business, we also have designed our program to prepare those aspiring to enter industry.
