Graduate School

The Institute of Brain Science is affiliated with the Nagoya City University Graduate School of Medical Sciences, and therefore offers graduate education at the Graduate School of Medical Sciences. The Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, the Graduate School of Science, and other fields related to neuroscience research have also entered as collaborative laboratories. Enjoy cutting-edge research that is beyond the boundaries of research departments at the Nagoya City University.

At the IBS seminars held regularly, world-class researchers, both internal and external, give lectures and engage in active discussions. In the 2022 academic year, neuroscience lectures will be newly established as common graduate courses for both master’s and doctoral programs. These are the world’s most advanced lectures given by faculty members of the Institute for Brain Science and collaborative laboratories. We hope you will take it!
