 Research Objectives

      Each laboratory is free to choose its research subjects. IMI hopes to attain international recognition as an institute which can achieve excellencein research and also contribute to the advancement of science, technology and human welfare. IMI pays special attention to diseases often neglectedby foreign researchers, but often contracted by local residents. IMI hopes to find ways to cure and prevent these diseases. To achieve these goals,each laboratory is active in getting research support, collaboration, and international exchange. In graduate education, there are several special IMI innovations:

1. IMI emphasizes individual development. So there is only a few required courses. Students are free to take elective courses under the guidance of their advisors.

2. IMI designed courses with different depth. In each field, courses are from elementary to advanced level and from general to specialized topics.
Students are encouraged to advance their mastery of knowledge gradually.

3. IMI emphasizes sophisticated approach to graduate education. Each class is composed of a small number of students so as to provide opportunities
for discussion between teachers and students, in order to promote skepticism and independent thinking.

4. IMI places great emphasis on practical operation and execution. So IMI encourages students to decide on a topic of their interest early and train them
to do independent research.
