Since its establishment in 1907, Tohoku University has always emphasized the three principles “Research First,” “Open Door,” and “Practice Orientation.” Many brilliant students graduated in its 111 years history. We are proud to say that our research achievements substantially impacted both the academic world and the global community. The continued collaborations and innovations are a significant reason for our selection as one of the Japanese government’s first three Designated National Universities in June 2017.
