This program has been accepting students since April 2019, and has been implemented as a degree program across several graduate schools. This program established the Life Science Course (5-year curriculum) and the Medical Course (4-year curriculum) in order to provide students with opportunities to acquire basic and applied knowledge and to learn techniques of genome editing. This program enables students to master genome editing technology and connect it directly to industry.

Life Science Course
In the first and second years, students will learn basic and advanced genome editing techniques. From the third year, they will conduct research utilizing the knowledge they have acquired. Through basic courses on social implementation of technologies and internships, they will be trained to become experts able to work at the cutting edge of genome editing technology.
After systematically learning the basic and advanced genome editing technologies in the first and second years, students will conduct research for their doctoral thesis, utilizing knowledge that they have acquired. In addition, through internships at domestic and overseas partner institutes, they will be trained to be able to work at the cutting edge of genome editing in the medical field.
