Cooperative Graduate School

The Cooperative Graduate School system aims to contribute to the development of science and technology through collaboration and cooperation between research institutes and graduate schools to educate students, improve their qualities, and promote mutual research exchange.

National Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology (NCGG) has concluded an agreement with universities based on the collaborative graduate school system, and researchers at NCGG have been appointed as visiting faculty members at each graduate school to mentor graduate students.

Students who are interested in researching at our center based on the Cooperative Graduate School system should contact the researcher by whom they would like to be mentored.
