The Center for Integrated Medical Research is involved in the development of a wide range of integrated studies, with the goal of passing on the results to the rest of society. The Research Park lends out space for fixed-term research projects, and is a hub for strategic, integrated research units, drawing from multiple discipline pairs: basic and clinical, undergraduate and graduate, academic and industrial, institutional and national. The Clinical and Translational Research Center, which facilitates the clinical development of intra- and extramural candidates derived from basic research in laboratories in order to deliver them to bedside without delay.

Shonan Fujisawa Campus

Favoring the Extreme in Order to Make Valuable Contributions to Society

Shonan Fujisawa Campus (SFC), Keio’s fifth campus, opened in 1990 and has become a developmental site for innovative approaches to education and research. Three faculties and two graduate schools are based here. The three faculties are the Faculty of Policy Management, the Faculty of Environment and Information Studies, and the Faculty of Nursing and Medical Care. The two graduate schools are the Graduate School of Media and Governance, which focuses on forward-thinking education, and the Graduate School of Health Management, which tackles the challenge of improving human health using the natural and social sciences. SFC is a progressive campus where over 300,000 square meters of lush greenery harmonizes with the latest in technology. The curriculum focuses on the acquisition of professional knowledge and skills through active participation.

Shiba-Kyoritsu Campus

At the Forefront of Pharmaceutical Research

The Faculty of Pharmacy was established in 2008 through a merger with Kyoritsu University of Pharmacy. All facilities are still located at the Shiba-Kyoritsu Campus near Shiba Park in the Minato ward of Tokyo. Over its nearly 80-year history, Kyoritsu University of Pharmacy produced over 13,000 pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists. Combining that legacy with the strengths of Keio University has created new platforms for education and research, as well as social contribution, that will allow Keio to shape the future of pharmacy.
