「減数分裂における染色体の動態制御機構」山本歩 教授 理学部化学科 - 静岡大学

A broad spectrum of scientific disciplines with stress on student curiosity

Practicing pure science requires a spirit of inquisitiveness and a motivation to solve the mysteries of natural phenomena, life and living organisms, matter, the cosmos, and the world of numbers. The curriculum is an organic synthesis of general and specialist education, designed to enable students to easily and systematically acquire specialized subjects over the course of their study. Students can proceed from the study of basic science, add knowledge from other fields and proceed to a specialty that fits their unique capabilities - ideal for students with abundant intellectual curiosity and a passion for solving mysteries. The university also offers a master's degree course in the Graduate School of Science, and has a Center for Radioscience Education and Research unique among universities in Japan.
