The "Strategic University Collaboration and Assistance Program for the Enrichment of University Education”

Establishment of a Hub for Cultivating Well-Rounded Graduate Talent Via the Tokyo Interdisciplinary Life Sciences Consortium

Principal Investigator: Hiroyuki KAGECHIKA, PhD (Dean, Graduate School of Biomedical Science)
The field of interdisciplinary life sciences is at the core of efforts by Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Ochanomizu University, Gakushuin University and Kitasato University to establish a network linking industry, government, academia, and relevant communities. To this end, the partner universities will expand the connections among research institutions, corporations, and governmental entities in the Tokyo metropolitan area. In addition, by continuing to form links with community networks, the consortium partners will create an interdisciplinary environment for research and education, one which transcends the public/private framework and which is based on collaboration with communities. The consortium partners will also produce wide-ranging scholarship in order to cultivate talented leaders capable of understanding and addressing real-world societal needs.
