The Ph.D. Program in Human Biology is a 5 year doctoral program integrating biological science, medicine, computational science, and materials science.

Education and Research system

Faculty Listing

The Faculty consists of 75 academics from the medical, biological, agricultural, computing, and mathematical sciences including mathematics, chemistry, and chemical biology; 8 members from independent research institutions and private companies; 29 members from other universities including 28 members from overseas universities.
The principal academic advisor will be determined from the full-time instructors already assigned as research supervisors for the Ph.D. Program according to the student’s preference. After the principal academic advisor is assigned, a co-advisor in a research field different from that of the principal advisor will be identified based on consultation between the principal advisor and the student. It is recommended that the co-advisor be selected beyond the boundaries between academia and industry and among biological, medical, mathematical, and information sciences.
