GCOE program accomplished



Successful completion of the GCOE program and its successor institution

The Global COE Program "Global Center of Excellence for Innovation in Human Health Science," organized and implemented in University of Shizuoka, has been completed on schedule. The Global COE program has developed a novel research field--human health sciences--by facilitating fruitful research collaboration between the food and nutritional sciences and the pharmaceutical sciences. New PhD program in the health and longevity science has also been provided by the program, resulting that a number of promising experts who devote themselves to the progressing research field have been nurtured.

The achievements made in the Global COE program led to the introduction of a new graduate school to University of Shizuoka. The new graduate school, Graduate School of Integrated Pharmaceutical and Nutritional Sciences, established in April 2012, successively provides the opportunity of higher education for the students.

The opportuniy for the higher education in the health and longevity sciences and the state-of-the-art research projectes stemmed from the GCOE program is presently provided in the novel graduate school for the future PhD candidates.
