The Graduate School of Medicine aims to drive advanced and creative interdisciplinary research and train the future leaders of biomedical sciences, clinical medicine, and medical administration. It focuses on training specialists who can identify the cause of medical problems out of complex factors and manage them for the health and welfare of humanity.

The Department of Biomedical Sciences offers an opportunity for students who have majored in various fields other than medicine, dentistry, or veterinary medicine to acquire the core aspects of genome science and its applications. Ultimately such individuals will become researchers or teachers who will contribute to yet further advancement in these fields. It is also expected that our graduates of the program will become leaders in biosciences, environmental studies, medicine, pharmacology and related fields.

Center for Infectious Diseases (CID)

Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine established the Center for Infectious Diseases (CID) in April 2009 by re-reorganizing ICMRT. The purpose of CID is to become a comprehensive hub for research and education about infectious diseases, dealing with both basic biomedical science and clinical science at the molecular,
cellular, individual, and global levels. Infectious diseases being studied here include herpesvirus, viral hepatitis, influenza, and norovirus.
Also, the project, “Collaborative Research on Emerging and Re-emerging Infectious Diseases in Indonesia” will carry out cooperative activities with Airlangga University, Indonesia starting in April 2015, supported by the Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development (AMED).
