The goal of the Graduate School of Medical Life Science is to establish biomedical science at the atomic and molecular level as a new field in biology. The aim of this is to equip students with research and development capabilities befitting the post-genome era. As such, the focus of the school’s postgraduate education is on giving students a foundation in “quantitative and technical thought processes at atomic and molecular level” and the “capacity for application and development to medical sciences”.
