Education and Research system

Faculty Listing

The Faculty consists of 73 academics from the medical, biological, agricultural, computing, and mathematical sciences including mathematics, chemistry, and chemical biology; 6 members from independent research institutions and private companies; 31 members from other universities including 30 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.
