What is FBS?
Life is full of the kind of wonder and surprise children often feel when they touch upon nature.
At the Graduate School of Frontier Biosciences, we aim to clarify these principles and mechanisms of all functions created by systems of "life."
We train pioneering leaders in biosciences. In recent years, there has been a succession of major technological innovations in the biosciences field, including the establishment of methods for genome sequencing and genome editing and possible applications in previously unpredictable areas have expanded to the fields of pharmaceuticals, agricultural studies, and material engineering. These breakthroughs are leading to answers to questions concerning the essence of life itself. Research methods are also progressing. While much of the research in biology has centered on genetics and biochemistry thus far, interdisciplinary approaches are now required, using advanced technologies in optical engineering, information engineering, robotics, AI, and other fields. To meet the needs of this new era of biosciences, the Graduate School of Frontier Biosciences aims to nurture future leaders capable of conceiving creative ideas and contributing to the world through research. FBS offers a five-year doctoral degree program headed by academic staff in wide-ranging specialties to educate students using an interdisciplinary research environment encompassing the fields of medicine, engineering, and science.
We study life and its possibilities by collecting ideas that intrigue people working in diverse specialties, which include engineering, physics, and information science, as well as biosciences and medicine. Fascinating, exciting, and fun research awaits you here.
