Protect the health of plants


Understand plants and the causes of disease

Microorganisms, harmful insects and sometimes weeds threaten the health of plants. In order to protect their health, you must know the enemy. Among these enemies, some play a role in Earth’ s environment despite causing damage to crops. Therefore you may grow fond of these enemies during your study.


Learn the cutting-edge technology of life science

Clinical plant science in the future cannot be practiced without the cutting-edge technology of bioscience, including molecular biology, genomics, bioinformatics, etc., and without the knowledge and techniques from information science such as image analysis and large data processing, etc. We study broadly, from the basics to the application level, coupled with experiment and practice.


Establishing Clinical Plant Science Center

The Clinical Plant Science Center was established to not only publicly announce the educational study results from the Department of Clinical Plant Science but also aid in learning the practices of diagnosis/treatment/control of plant disease in order to develop applicable capabilities in using the latest technology and knowledge of life science and environment science in the field.



Understand the world’s food supply and environmental problems

It is said that the current world population of approximately 7 billion people will surpass 9 billion in 2050. However, the rate of food production is expected to slow down, leading to an inevitable food shortage. Tackling disease, insect and weed damage, as well as post-harvest disease, which eliminate 30 to 40 percent of food production in the world, will lead to a solution to food supply problems in the future. Clinical plant science will look at these problems as well as environmental problems such as energy concerns, etc.


Develop a broad perspective

By 1) promoting the achievement of a cycloid type society in which sustainable progress is aimed at the regeneration of nature or a natural symbiosis on a global scale, and 2) being highly aware of food supply problems, global environment issues, food safety concerns and international projects in order to contribute to mankind and society, our department will attempt to develop a combined natural and social perspective and multifaceted understanding/thinking capability that will link environmental preservation/control to the achievement of material cycling. Based upon the standpoint of clinical plant science, we intend to educate and develop human resources that are necessary for our society.
