Message from the Dean

The Graduate School of Frontier Biosciences (FBS) was launched six years ago with the intention of becoming a leading and unique science institute. The primary aim of the school is to establish a new research field by merging engineering, physics, chemistry or mathematics with the traditional life sciences. To achieve this, we have recruited professors from various backgrounds including immunology, biophysics, developmental biology, physics, cell biology, neuroscience and information sciences. Because of this diversity, our education program offers an interdisciplinary education that combines this wide range of research areas. As such, we are welcoming young students of all scientific backgrounds from around the world who aspire to become leading innovators in the life sciences. In our eyes, it is our students that define the quality of the FBS and that the quality of the students is defined by their imagination and curiosity. Therefore, our goal is to nurture both of these qualities by proving an environment that is both intellectually fulfilling and personally satisfying. Six years have passed since our Graduate School was first launched. During this period, the quality of our education and research has evolved to keep us at the top of our field. Furthermore, our graduates have already begun to make their impact at other universities, institutes and companies. I hope this trend continues with current and future students and researchers at the FBS offering their passion and intelligence to developing leading-edge research for a new era.
