It is said that the 21st century is the age of Life Sciences. Human genomes have been fully decoded, and life sciences have moved onto the structure and physiological function analysis of biomolecules.
In the Department of Life Science we aim to educate human resources who have acquired the fundamental elements required by Life Science industries, such as pharmaceuticals and health foods, through the analysis of complex and intricate life phenomena on atomic and molecular levels while focusing on biology and chemistry.
The Department of Life Science is composed of staff conducting a vast array of creative and innovative educational research from the analysis of biomolecules on an atomic level to the physiological analysis of cells and individuals, searching for useful organisms and genes in nature, and applications for biological element designs.
We are nurturing future life science academics and highly-skilled engineers, cultivating human resources who will work in careers where they can use their life science knowledge and intellect and have the ability to take on pioneering roles.
