Flow from pre-admission to completion of this program

Humanics is a five-year Ph.D. program (we do not provide master’s degree). The program aims to nurture leaders who can formulate a new paradigm by conducting the integrated researches through outstanding bi-disciplinary expertise consisting of biomedical sciences and one of physical sciences/engineering/informatics.

The Ph.D. Program in Humanics awards either Ph.D. in Medical Sciences, Ph.D. in Science, or Ph.D. in Engineering. Qualifying Examination (QE) will be conducted for students who have earned more than 35 credits, and evaluates the ability to propose integrated research plans through the bi-disciplinary expertise consisting of biomedical sciences and one of physical sciences/engineering/informatics. The QE can be carried out early depending on the achievement, and has to be passed by the end of the second year.

The dissertation defense is conducted for students who have earned more than 45 credits and have reached a certain assessment level of the learning portfolio. The ability to tackle emerging issues through the bi-disciplinary expertise and the ability to identify issues that could formulate a new paradigm will be evaluated.

Integrated Research Humanics is pursing

In Humanics – that brings together knowledge from various fields to create new science and technology, research born from your ideas may change the future of society and each of us.

Students' Voice about QE Experience

Entry in 2019

Masaharu Yoshihara

Dr. Satoru Takahashi × Dr. Hiroyasu Ando

QE was a great opportunity to broaden my horizons. It was more than examination. Rather, it was a chance to realize potential significance of my research and to build my future plans. For example, I was doing computer simulation for biological pattern formation. Before QE presentation, my goal was just mathematical description. Advices from the referees made me realize the importance of analyzing how a signal pathway can constitutively contribute to biological pattern formation. So, don’t be afraid of it!

Shinichi Miyazaki

Dr. Yu Hayashi × Dr. Hideaki Kano

The qualifying examination (QE) was an excellent opportunity to revise my research plan. While writing my research plan, I realized there were many ambiguous points, especially the definitions of the words used in my research plan. The most challenging aspect of QE was how to combine the themes in two different laboratories. It is crucial to learn much about the second field. For me, QE was tough; however, the committee members gave me many valuables advice.

Ai Miyasaka

[Mentors]
Dr. Takeshi Sakurai × Dr. Hotaka Takizawa

It was very hard for me to confirm my credits is enough to apply QE. Please check it by yourself carefully and if you have some worries, inquire about it to professors who belong to Humanics program.

You need to submit your research proposal when you apply QE. After first submission, I had to polish my research plan because my chief examiner asked to add the citation from informatics field more. This opportunity was good for me because I could survey the articles more from my sub-field and think my fusion research more deeply.

Preparing the research plan and presentation for your QE is a great opportunity to review the project and its feasibility. It is easy for us to get lost in the nuances of our studies, as we are constantly immersed in it. However, when we prepare for the QE this allows us to take a step back and explain our work to professors who might not have any exposure to our specific research. For me, this process was crucial in honing my research expectations into a focused project that could be completed within my remaining three years.

Ryota Ishikawa

Dr. Jun Izawa ×
Dr. Masayuki Matsumoto

I entered Humanics after receiving my master's degree, and passed the QE in January at the end of my first year. The advantages of the QE are that it is similar in format to the application form for the JSPS and you can prepare for it, you can get comments on your research plan, and your plan becomes more concrete by preparing for the exam. The preparation time for the documents (research plan) and the presentation was about four months in my case. I think it is important to show the feasibility of your plan and have knowledge so that you can discuss with referees in both fields.

Dr. Masashi Yamazaki

QE was for me an excellent opportunity to lay down and clarify my ideas and to narrow down what I wanted to do. It is not to be seen as a stressful examination only but as a great opportunity to discuss important points and to receive advice and insightful perspectives. The possibility of a correction of the proposal after receiving comments allows the refinement and polishing of the project. The referees are very helpful and constructive, being not only a one-time jury but following and helping to mold the whole project. It was very challenging but totally valuable.

Osamu Toyoshima

[Mentors]
Dr. Masayuki Matsumoto ×
Dr. Jun Izawa

To apply for the QE, you are required to have a research proposal with a certain level of feasibility. Preparing the research proposal was a good opportunity for me to review my own research, including researching the references and setting the goal of my research. It was also a valuable chance to brush up my plan by getting advice from several reviewers from the planning stage, so I recommend that you apply for QE as soon as you have enough credits.

Chanh Yun Hsuan

Dr. Osamu Ohneda ×
Dr. Tetsuya Sakurai

QE is a good chance for me to scrutinize my research proposal and make the direction of research project more clear. During the preparation of QE, I frequently discussed with my mentors and both of them gave me some advices for my study. In the QE, all of the referees gave me a lot of suggestions for my research proposal. And these suggestions are really helpful for me to clarify and consolidate the idea of my study now.

[Mentors]
Dr. Hiroyuki Kitagawa ×
Dr. Masashi Yanagisawa, Dr. Kazumasa Horie

My QE experience was interesting because I learned about the differences between an engineering proposal presentation and a scientific proposal presentation. Engineers are more interested on How rather than on Why, so regarding the presentation of my model, I felt I focused too much on explaining the background instead of explaining what made my model and my project special and or interesting.
My recommendation for QE is to think about it as if you’re pitching your idea, like selling it to your audience. To succeed, please remark the strengths of your project and what makes it unique.

Wang Yinghao
NEWWang Yinghao
[Mentors]
Dr. Itaru Kitahra ×
Dr. Tatsuya Oda

There is really so much I want to say when it comes to my QE experience.
Although when I found out that QE in Humanics could be done at a year and a half, or even a year early, I wanted to have a try.
But since I hadn't published academic papers or done any research on the subject during my time at university, I had very little experience. So after discussion with my professor, we decided to concentrate on the final QE opportunity at the end of two years. In other word, "one shot to win"「一発勝負」, thus saving more time and effort on research.
And from the preparation of the QE to the publication and the results. I had many discussions and exchanges with the professors on the review committee. Revisiting the QE process and the feeling it brought me, I think it is not just an exam, but a research guidepost. The professors will give advice on current research problems and follow-up plans from both medicine and informatics areas and perspectives, which I feel is crucial.

Zhoumao Duo
NEWZhoumao Duo
[Mentors]
Dr. Matsumoto Masayuki ×
Dr. Jun Izawa

Although QE may be perceived as an exam, I think it is better to see it as an opportunity to summarize my current work and construct a full-picture vision of future work. By preparing for the QE, I not only had an objective understanding of my research, but I also gain a clearer idea of how to move forward with my study throughout the Ph.D. duration. Preparing materials for the QE is also a good opportunity to practice your writing and presentation skills. Of course, actually advancing our study in daily experiments and data analysis is the most important thing. The daily accumulation will provide strong support for QE.

Sergio Alberto Galindo Leon
NEWSergio Alberto Galindo Leon
[Mentors]
Dr. Kenji Suzuki ×
Dr. Masashi Yamazaki

The QE is one of the most valuable experiences in the Humanics program as writing the research plan makes the research ideas transform into realistic, feasible and measurable steps to acquire significant results. The feedback I received from my referees helped me improve the bi-disciplinary aspects of my proposal and to revise some aspects that were not clear at that time. The possibility of re submitting the research plan after the initial feedback is especially worthwhile and helped a lot to reduce the pressure and also to enhance considerably the research proposal. It is important to be concise, clear and to always think the referees are also multidisciplinary so do not assume the referees will necessarily know all the aspects of your research from the first time.

Minori Masaki
NEWMinori Masaki
[Mentors]
Dr. Masashi Yanagisawa ×
Dr. Hideaki Kano

‘How to integrate the two fields’ is the most attractive and most difficult aspect of the Humanics program. It was a good opportunity to take some time to think alone about it. In addition, the comments from the supervisors were very informative. Taking the QE at an early stage helped to organize the thinking and research.
