|Nine laboratories are recruiting prospective doctoral course students from
various backgrounds. Besides the graduates from the university of Tokushima,
the number of applicants with diversified educational fields is remarkably
increasing year after year.
|We are sincerely dedicated to establish the educational environment where the students can focus on their interests.
|We can provide the doctoral course students with COE research assistants with which they can build up academic experiences as well as gain financial support from the 21st century COE program. Prospective students are strongly encouraged to make the best use of this opportunity.
|Graduate School of Nutrition and Biosciences
The School consists of 2 subdivision (Human Nutrition Sciences and Food
Material and Function) and 9 departments Molecular Nutrition, Nutritional
Physiology, Preventive Environment and Nutrition, Food Science, Clinical
Nutrition, Nutrition and Metabolism, International Public Health Nutrition,
Food Material Technology, Food Function Engineering).
The Graduate School is now recognized as the leading institution for education
and research in in nutritional science, and has been contributing greatly
to achieving its initial purpose by preparing graduates to work in other
universities, research institutes and nutrition-related companies and by
exchanging students and many researchers worldwide.

|Graduate School of Medical Sciences
The school is divided into basically into 2 divisions (Medical and Proteomics), and there is an extensive cultural exchange not only between the divisions, but also among graduate schools at home and abroad. Since the task of the Graduate School is to foster "researchers with creativity who are independent to instruct others", students will have elaborate daily lives seeking to become "professional researchers competing their research toward the world."

|Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences
The school is one of the most active in the world and offers unsurpassed
opportunities of research and career development.
Many laboratories in the course of Pharmaceutical Sciences carry out excellent
fundamental research leading to drug discovery. The research presents the
graduate students with the unique ability to carry out research chemically
synthesizing and genetically producing new active molecules.
The graduate student in the course is exposed to science of drug discovery , drug action, and drug delivery.
The course has educated highly motivated scientists occupying major positions
in the pharmaceutical companies and academia.
