Integrated Bioscience Division


To establish an education and research organization that can address rapid development of life science in agricultural field, the Integrated Bioscience Division has gathered many faculty members who have backgrounds in many science fields. Considering the interdisciplinary fields such as medicine and engineering in addition to agriculture, this division provides leading-edge education and research in life science, for example, animal, plant, microbe, and fungus resource development, molecule structure analysis, structure-activity relationship analysis, genome expression, and functional analysis. Through cooperation with regions and industries, we have a goal to contribute to leading-edge life science research and education, and the creation of rich societies by fostering human resources who will develop next-generation life science.
