  • Advanced Clinical Pharmaceutical Sciences (Doctoral Program)
Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences

Pharmaceutical Sciences (Master’s Program)

  The Master’s Program in Pharmaceutical Sciences welcomes admission applications from those who have graduated, or expect to graduate, from 4-year courses of pharmaceutical sciences or other sciences. Applicants are not required to have pharmacist licenses. As the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences adopted a six-year program in April 2006, the Master’s Program in Pharmaceutical Sciences is offered as an independent program accepting graduates of other faculties or universities.
  Students acquire broad and deep knowledge through the program as they develop research capabilities in the field of pharmaceutical sciences and gain the superior expertise they will need in their professions. The program makes full use of the latest pharmaceutical science methodologies to systematically foster research specialists able to perform basic research on drug discovery and the elucidation of action mechanisms and biological response mechanisms.

Research Fields of the Master’s Program in Pharmaceutical Sciences

  Pharmaceutics, Pharmacognosy, Chemical Pharmacology, Pathological Biochemistry, Biomolecular Analysis, Biochemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, Biophysical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Hygienic Chemistry, Microbial Chemistry, Pharmacology, Public Health, Pharmacokinetics, Biophysics, Clinical Pharmacy

Advanced Clinical Pharmaceutical Sciences (Doctoral Program)

  The four-year Doctoral Program in Advanced Clinical Pharmaceutical Sciences welcomes applications from those who have completed, or expect to complete, a six-year degree program in pharmaceutical sciences or other disciplines or who have been, or expect to be, awarded a master’s degree in a scientific discipline.
  The program cultivates superior expertise and research capabilities both in the pharmaceutical sciences and in the interdisciplinary fields between pharmaceutical and medical sciences for those wishing to pursue careers in healthcare as pharmacists or researchers. While promoting basic research and clinical research on drug discovery and the elucidation of action mechanisms and biological response mechanisms by exploiting the latest pharmaceutical science methodologies, we are systematically fostering specialists in R&D of new drugs and in research on the clinical application of drugs. First-year students take lecture courses corresponding to their research fields, in addition to seminars and training courses. Students who do not have pharmacist licenses focus on basic research.

Research Fields of the Doctoral Program in Therapeutic Medicine and Pharmaceutics

  Pharmaceutical Regulatory Science, Pharmacotherapeutics, Molecular Diagnosis, Pharmaceutical Molecular Design
