Procedure for
acceptance of graduate students at CiRA

The Kyoto University Center for iPS cell Research and Application (CiRA) hosts graduate students (and undergraduates) enrolled in the Faculty of Medicine. For students wishing to enter the Master’s or Ph.D. course, they must first pass the entrance examination and be accepted into the School of Medicine.

CiRA is divided into different Departments. To join a lab in a given department, a student must come to an agreement with the lab supervisor. If that supervisor does not hold the title of professor, then the student must also receive additional permission from a CiRA professor based on the advice of the lab supervisor. It is recommended that Applicants consult the lab supervisor prior to taking the entrance examination.
