Features of Graduate School

Producing numerous leading researchers
who contribute to the development in pharmaceutical sciences

The Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences was established in April 1953. We have regarded "pharmaceutical sciences" as a comprehensive academic field aiming to the progress of the health sciences and have strived to promote research and education. A large number of leading researchers, who are active in the front lines of broad professional fields, have been produced into the areas of pharmaceutical production, health care, and the environment.
We are now faced with a rapid change of the social environment, and pharmaceutical researchers are being required to play important roles in the health sciences area. That is, there is no doubt that the demand for researchers with a background in the pharmaceutical field will be increased in the future. We hope that you will enter the Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences in Osaka University in order to become a researcher contributing to the advancement of comprehensive health science.
