A Stanford Biodesign Program Development PartnerJapan Biodesign



This is a core course for training and developing innovative talents through Biodesign, held for ten months on a full-time basis from October to July. It consists of two programs: programs held individually at Osaka University, the University of Tokyo, and Tohoku University, as well as a three-university joint program offered under the name of Japan Biodesign. The programs are basically held in Japanese. However, because the participants receive mentoring by the Stanford faculty and undergo training at Stanford, the curriculum are implemented in two languages, i.e., Japanese and English.


Recruit for 2016 fellow would be started around April 2016.
