Clinical Research Fellow Program

We offer opportunities to pursue both cutting-edge stem cell research and world-leading medical transplantation!

Research Fellow Program

Understanding stem cell research is essential in pursuing next-generation clinical medicine!

Regeneration medicine has been in the center of attention worldwide as the new medicine of the21st century, and stem cells are the key to its success. Bone marrow transplantation has a history of over 40 years as a therapy for leukemia. Its essence is reconstitution of the hematopoietic system through hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The discovery of human embryonic stem cells and human iPS cells not only has opened up entirely new possibilities for gene and cell therapy clinically. In addition, as a source of human cells without limits on proliferation, it will make great contributions to drug development and to elucidating the causes of disease. The young physicians who will take a major role in next-generation medical care necessarily will need thoroughly to understand the fundamentals of stem cells and of research methodology.

The Center of Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine, established in 2008 at the Institute of Medical Science, University of Tokyo, aims to develop new gene and cell therapies through combining world-leading success in cord blood transplantation for adult hematopoietic malignancies with cutting-edge stem cell research mainly on hematopoietic stem cells and iPS cells. The Center has launched the "Clinical Research Fellow System" to foster the next generation of young persons who will carry on this work. Clinical research fellows can both conduct clinical investigations and pursue basic research in fields of their choice. Those who hope eventually to earn a Ph.D. degree can combine clinical training and basic research, depending on their preferences, at the Graduate School of Medicine and Faculty of Medicine of the University of Tokyo.

Master's Program and Ph. D. Program

Master's Program and Ph. D. Program

 

Medical Science Graduate Program, Graduate School of Medicine and Faculty of Medicine
This route has a 2-year master's-degree program and a 4-year Ph.D. program. Those who were graduated from a 4-year college first enroll in the master's-degree course and then go on to the Ph.D. program. Those who were graduated from a 6-year college, such as those with a degree in medicine or in veterinary studies, enroll directly in the Ph.D. program. Students receive a master's degree or a Ph.D. degree in medical science. In the master's-degree course, students list their first, second, and third choices of laboratories after experiencing hospital practical training and laboratory training. Because of numerical limitations, however, some students may not be assigned to their first choice of laboratory. For up-to-date and more detailed information, visit the Medical Science Graduate Program webpage.

 

 

Department of Medical Genome Science, Graduate School of Frontier Sciences

This route has a 2-year master's-degree program and a 3-year Ph.D. program. Those who were graduated from a 4-year college enroll in the master's-degree course and then go on to the Ph.D. program. Students who obtained a master's degree in another graduate school enroll directly in the Ph.D. course. Students receive a master's degree or a Ph.D.. degree in Life Science.
