Program for Enhancing Systematic Education in Graduate Schools

TITECH-TMDU Joint Education Program for Biomedical Bioinformatics

Leader: Hiroshi TANAKA,DM,PhD(Professor, Biomedical Science PhD Program)
Tokyo Institute of Technology (TITECH) and TMDU have jointly started an education program aiming for production of individuals with double-major minds and skills who can solve up-to-date biomedical issues with leading-edge computational technologies in this personal genomics era. This program succeeds to the achievements of university alliances among TMDU, TITECH, Hitotsubashi University, and Tokyo University of Foreign Studies since 2001. This program provides an opportunity for diverse faculties and students studying different fields to work together in order to develop advanced biomedical technologies that enable a healthy society without diseases. TMDU students shall learn by TITECH faculties about computational theory and skills to analyze and interpret the next generation sequence data by themselves. The faculties of both TMDU and TITECH together shall educate TMDU students so they can become new leaders who promote personalized medicine based on massive genomics information.
