Admission Policy

  1. 01

    Develop the personnel defined in admission policies of Institute for Protein Research.

    We aim to develop a wide range of personnel with the ability to elucidate the biological function at the atomistic and molecular level. That is also our institute’s aim of foundation.

  2. 02

    Develop the deserving personnel who can evolve the related fields in the future.

    We endeavor to develop the hopeful and deserving personnel who can evolve the related fields in the future, such as Protein Chemistry and Protein Structural Biology of analyzing the protein structure and function, Molecular Biology, Development Biology and Neuroscience of researching various biological function.

  3. 03

    Create the cross-sectoral, international research and educational environment.

    Through collaboration with Graduate School of Science, Graduate School of Frontier Biosciences, Graduate School of Medicine and Graduate School of Engineering, we participate in the fulfilling curriculum which many faculties who engage in protein research are involved in, that enable us to create a variety of educational and research framework.

  4. 04

    Develop the personnel who will be major players in the field of cross-disciplinary protein research in the future.

    Protein Research is a cross-disciplinary research field which transcends the borders among the existing research fields such as chemistry, physics, biology and medical science. We endevour to develop the personnel who can break down silos among laboratories and will be active interdisciplinary in the future.
