About the Program
Bringing Advanced Biomedical Knowledge to the Real World
Application of advanced biomedical knowledge to real-life situations can improve patients’ quality of life, reduce disease risks, prolong healthy lifespan, and provide other benefits that enrich the health and wellbeing of the local communities. Practical application of new scientific knowledge will lead to new challenges, which will in turn demand a new platform for R & D innovation. This virtuous feedback loop is at the center of thriving innovation ecosystems.

Our doctoral program equips students with critical research skills to achieve world-leading, cutting-edge advances in life science and the competence to translate them into tangible solutions that our society needs. With support from local governments and national and international corporations, our program boasts a unique educational framework. The industry-government-academia collaboration of our program provides a platform that fosters academic insight and skills to analyze the excellence and future prospects of research findings from the viewpoints of intellectual property rights, marketability, regulatory science, and more.
Students who successfully complete our program will be awarded the Transdisciplinary Program for Biomedical Entrepreneurship and Innovation diploma in addition to a doctoral degree from the graduate school of their choice (Graduate Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, Pharmaceutical Sciences, or Frontier Biosciences).
Organizational Structure of the Program
Students will have opportunities to learn from and interact with experts from global pharmaceutical companies and leading national and international corporations. This program also provides opportunities for corporate internships and overseas study tours.
