Areas of Study
In this way, the Biomedical Engineering and Biomedical Information-Medical Life Systems program of Doshisha University aims to cultivate and enlighten students so that they may develop interdisciplinary and comprehensive research ability in order to understand life science and the related fields of basic medicine, science, and engineering, as well as the humanities, social sciences and similar fields. Furthermore, this course carries on the philosophy of the Faculty of Life and Medical Sciences—a philosophy that emphasizes basic medical education. This course focuses on research that is useful to people and society and cultivates human resources who can develop new academic fields and put them to use.
The course of biomedical engineering and biomedical Information develops research and education on the advanced technology necessary for various multidisciplinary fields of medicine and engineering—the frontier areas of medical technology—while envisioning the future course of the advanced technologists who adequately understand biological function and will support next-generation technology, and accurately understanding the status of the academic progress of life science fields.
Through these activities, this field aims to cultivate researchers who can contribute to further technological development in the field of biomedical engineering, impart comprehensive knowledge and technology to students, and edify them so that they may become advanced technologists who have the ability to correctly make use of engineering technology and respond flexibly even to the challenges of next-generation medical technology. More specifically, the aim of this field is for students to acquire advanced biomedical engineering technology through research on bioinstrumentation technology for accurate acquisition of biological information and research on neurological-mechanism analysis and medical information systems related to simulation of biological information processing mechanisms.
The course of medical life systems aims to cultivate researchers who understand a broad range of medical sciences and biomedical engineering with a focus on life sciences, and who can respond also to the various challenges of advanced medical systems in medical institutions.
For this purpose, students research biological phenomena from the perspective of understanding humans as one life system and develop education and research aimed at elucidating this system's control mechanisms. In particular, this field considers life to be a functional system responding and adapting to internal and external stimuli and emphasizes academic fields that elucidate these functions. Furthermore, through understanding medical technology related to medical life systems and through diverse approaches to elucidation of mechanisms of maintaining biological functions, this field aims to impart comprehensive knowledge and technology to students and edify them, and cultivate researchers who can contribute to academic development of the field of medical life systems.
More specifically, the aim of this field is for students to acquire advanced understanding of various phenomena related to life and medical sciences through research on topics such as systems biology, which involves comprehensive thinking about the nature of biological phenomena; neurological mechanisms related to the base of biological control; genetic engineering, molecular biology, and molecular pharmacology which explain biological phenomena at a molecular level.
