Dept. of Life Science
Life sciences is a comprehensive academic discipline that most directly contributes to solving the health, medical care, and food supply problems that are the foundation for the better human life. The life science-based industry is at the core of the future growth engine business that meets the demand for medical and healthcare services due to the entry of the elderly society.
The Department of Life Science is working to educate students specialized in the medical and biotechnology fields by developing into a multidisciplinary science that breaks down barriers between disciplines and creates new values based on rapidly accumulating biological knowledge.
In order to cultivate competitive talents in the bioindustry such as 'Personalized Healthcare Service', the department offers lectures on basic courses in the Life Sciences as well as elective courses including bioinformatics and cutting-edge technology in the biological analysis. In particular, it specializes in the high-throughput NGS (Next Generation Sequencing)-based genomic analysis application areas. Based on this, we are expanding the quantitative and qualitative expansion of the graduate schools, reorganizing department operations. We have curriculums focusing on the experimental training courses and intensive upbringing in life science.
