Curriculum of CBMS

The curriculum of this department integrates the lectures of the former Department of Medical Genome and the former Department of Computational Biosciences, in addition to the Medical Innovation Course. We have fundamental and advanced lectures in above each field. In addition, we have lectures in the advanced medical sciences and advanced information and life sciences.

Summary of our education

The fundamental and advanced lectures and laboratory exercises (including some that you do not receive credit) are listed below. Our goal is to provide students with various backgrounds with flexible course options to acquire knowledge in both medical science and information science.

Categories Lecture and laboratory exercises

Three CBMS Educational Programs (MGSP/CBSP/DSTEP)

 The department has established three educational programs as standard course packages for students with diverse backgrounds. By completing all the lectures and exercises included in the course package, students are considered to have reached the goal of each program and are awarded a certificate of the program completion.

The educational programs

 CBMS Educational Programs are for all master and doctoral students in CBMS. Students who have completed all the lectures and exercises included in the course package designated by each educational program will receive a program completion certificate.

Medical Genome Science Program (MGSP)
The program provides education and experience in the medical field to foster researchers in life science and medical science who aim to revolutionize medicine from the most advanced life science and genomic science. Students who complete the program are expected to contribute to improvements in human health and welfare as leaders in translational research among medicine, engineering, and bioinformatics.

Computational Biological Science Program CBSP)
In addition to the fundamental programming, the program provides education and exercises to fosters specialists, who will pioneer new fields of computational biology from a broad perspective, including the development of various applications and algorithms. They are expected to be engaged in medical research that clarifies life phenomena and contributes to improving human health and welfare as leaders in genome analysis, medical genomics, and translational research among molecular biology, medical engineering, and bioinformatics.

Data Scientist Training/Education Program (DSTEP)
(Note) DSTEP is for doctoral students in CBMS and Department of Integrated Biosciences.
DSTEP is operated by the Laboratory of Social Cooperation, which was established as a University-operated organization. The program aims to develop human resources that can be immediately effective in developing bioinformatics technologies required by companies through collaborations with the consortium of pharmaceutical, bioinformatics, and biotechnology-related companies.
