Message from Chief of Department

Department of Basic Medical Sciences

In the field of basic medical research, technological innovations such as next-generation sequencing, single-cell analysis, and gene editing have been breaking barriers of experimental approach which were considered technically impossible before. Under this environment, the process of generating "scientifically meaningful" questions, making hypotheses, and proving them by experiments to gain new knowledge have been more critical than ever. Through your carrier as a graduate student in our school, we encourage you not just to earn the degree but acquire the foundation for becoming an independent researcher. We welcome you to join us.
