Chiba University School of Medicine, Laboratory Animal Center

Chiba University was founded about 130 years ago, taking its forerunner into account; and from its foundation, great efforts have been made to improve the university’s research and standing. The university charter says, “Always Aim Higher”, and it is our goal to continue the high standard of achievement set with its inception in the Meiji era.
After the incorporation of national universities in 2004, we obtained a freedom which we had never had. Yet, this has presented us with a new set of obstacles and challenges to overcome. Faced with a wide range of difficulties starting with matters of management, we will make drastic reforms to overcome these issues. Our reforms here at Chiba University will be guided by the debate about “What is the problem?”, “What is the objective?”, “What should we do?” and “How will we evaluate the results?” This will be achieved in corporation with everyone involved with the school from the students, to the educational and administrative staff.
Chiba University should produce students who learn independently and can use their talents to contribute to society, and produce research results, which benefit human beings throughout the world. So we will continue to move forward by creating new organizations to strengthen the management to achieve it, and creating a satisfactory educational environment so that our academic activities and achievements can flourish.
It is very important to understand the evolution of changes in history to accurately understand the present situation and thus enhance the further development of Chiba University I hope that you find this booklet useful as we continue on our journey to aim higher.Chiba University was founded in 1949, unifying several regional former national colleges and schools such as Chiba Medical College and Chiba Normal School. Its fundamental mission since then has been, as encapsulated by the inscription on the University Bell, ad altiora semper (always toward the higher), to equip students with the ability to make mature and informed judgments while nurturing and guiding their creativity. Pursuing these goals of excellence has resulted in Chiba University becoming one of the leading academic research centers of Japan.
Currently, Chiba University consists of nine faculties, the university library, the university hospital and other educational and research facilities. With 11,278 students in the undergraduate program, it has long been one of the largest universities in Japan. As for the graduate school, there are about 2,300 students in nine master's programs and 1,300 in seven doctoral programs.
Chiba University is proud of its productive faculties and varied courses, the particulars of which will be introduced in the following sections. The University's three campuses, Nishi-Chiba, Inohana and Matsudo are ideally located in Chiba Prefecture, an area noted for its industrial, intellectual and international achievements. In recent decades Chiba has undergone rapid development which in many ways rivals the neighboring Tokyo Metropolis. Many national projects have been based in Chiba Prefecture, and now Chiba has one of the main international transport centers (New Tokyo International Airport Narita) and one of the largest business centers in Japan (Makuhari New Metropolitan Area and Nippon Convention Center). Many new academic and industrial complexes for the advanced sciences (The Kazusa DNA Research Institute) are located in Chiba Prefecture. The developments in Chiba today are representative of tomorrow's Japan. Matters occurring in the most progressive parts of Japan, or even in the world, will provide rich materials for research in various aspects of the human, social, industrial and natural sciences.
Chiba University, with the support of the Japanese national government, is extending the frontiers of its international activities. The University is establishing new cooperative relations with numerous overseas universities, and developing an even closer relationship with those with which it has already concluded cooperation agreements. The University has already achieved a high degree of participation in international cooperative research projects. Chiba University presently has a large body of international research scholars and students studying on its various campuses. As of 2006, there are approximately 383 international researcher and 832 international students. Starting October, 1996, Chiba University launched a one-year scholarship program (Japan Program at Chiba: J-PAC) designed to provide international students with the opportunity to take courses in English
