Professor Yasumitsu Ogra, Ph.D,
Research Director and Dean

Welcome to the official website of the Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences and the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Chiba University. The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Chiba University has cultivated a long history and tradition since its foundation 130 years ago, and to this day, continues to be one of the preeminent schools of pharmaceutical sciences in Japan. We are truly proud of our traditions and values that our staff and graduates have collectively passed on and cherished throughout our long history. Our graduates have grown to become national and international leaders in pharmaceutical sciences and related fields, and spread their influence around the world.

Since the inception of our graduate school, international partnership is a core component of our mission. Internationalization has been one of the key strategies for our development. We continuously expand international partnership with the faculty of pharmacy and/or related fields at oversea universities. Through these partnership and collaborations, our students and faculty members are touching with excellent opportunity to broaden their knowledge and expertise around their interests. We deeply cherish these education and research collaboration with international partners. Our graduate school, of course, opens for international students. Our international alumni have become the leaders in their respective fields and have been playing important roles in their home countries. In addition, our graduate school has already launched a double/dual degree program (DDP) with our partner universities. The DDP candidate can receive two Ph.D. degrees issued by her/his home university and Chiba University after qualification of evaluation. For undergraduate students of faculty of pharmacy at our partner university, we offer an opportunity of research internship. An internship student stays at each laboratory in our graduate school for several months to learn basic research skills and knowledge. We always make efforts to provide a comprehensive and wide range of student supports for internship students.

On behalf of all people in the Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences and the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Chiba University, I warmly and sincerely welcome your interest to study in and your exploring opportunities for academic or research collaboration with our graduate school and faculty.
