Developmental / Cellular Biology / Systems Biology Course [4 credits (year-round)] – April, 2019 – March, 2020


It provides opportunities for cross-disciplinary discussion and technical acquisition in a wide range of fields of developmental / cell biology and systems biology. Through interaction with domestic and foreign experts who are active in these fields, we will cultivate a broad perspective and knowledge, understanding of diseases, ability to carry out joint research, language ability and information dissemination ability, social responsibility and ethical perspective. , A competent life scientist who can contribute to elucidation of the mechanism of various physiological phenomena, elucidation of etiology, development of excellent diagnosis / prevention / treatment methods, or mathematics that can deal with a wide range of problems in the fields of medicine and biology.・ Aim to train information science researchers. This graduate course is co-sponsored by the Center for Biodynamics, Graduate School of Life Sciences.


Research presentations by young researchers (30 minutes), lectures by invited speakers (1 hour) and discussions based on them will be held once a month (in principle, on Fridays, but may change) 17:00 according to the schedule below. Do more. A training camp will be held in January to present and discuss the research of graduate students who belong to this course. All will be conducted in English.


This course provides an opportunity to engage in cross-cutting discussion, beyond specialized fields, in the broad fields of developmental / cell biology and systems physiology, and acquire the relevant techniques. Through interaction with experts active within and outside of these fields, this course By doing so, it will cultivate (1) capable practitioners of medical and life sciences who can explain the mechanism underlying various physiological phenomena, explain the causes of diseases, and contribute to the development of excellent methods of diagnosis, prevention, and treatment; and (2) researchers in mathematics and informatics who can take on a broad array of problems in life science domains. Each monthly seminar basically includes two talks by a young researcher (30) min) and an invited speaker (1 hour)  talk. this course will be conducted completely in English;  another of its objectives is acquiring the scientific English used in diverse fields.
