A Message from the Department Chair
Welcome to the website of the Advanced Molecular Chemistry (AMC) course at Tohoku University.
The AMC course is the fruit of collaboration between the Department of Chemistry and three research institutes (Institute of Multidisciplinary Research for Advanced Materials, WPI-Advanced Institute for Materials Research and Institute for Materials Research). As one of the leading Chemistry Departments in Japan, we offer high quality education in English where students work in close contact with our faculty members. By collaborating with internationally recognized research institutes, we are able to offer our students a diverse range of well-funded research programs and opportunities to use world-class research equipment. The graduates of this course will be expected to work as professional chemists in Japan as well as in other countries.
I invite you to explore the webpages of our faculty members to learn more about our research offerings and teaching program.
We hope that the AMC will be your choice to obtain professional knowledge and skills required for your future success in knowledge-based societies.

Comment by Advanced Molecular Chemistry (AMC) Course Representative
“Ideally, we would like students to become accustomed to working in the research laboratory from as early as their first or second year, perhaps during the summer vacation, for example. We hope students will recognize the value of research from the early stage,” comments Professor Kazushi Kinbara of the Institute of Multidisciplinary Research for Advanced Materials (IMRAM). We also want international students to be fully integrated into the academic community and feel part of the team. In the laboratories where many researchers work and share their ideas, We believe learning can be a thoroughly enjoyable experience for international students.
