The division was established in1996 by joining two departments, the Department of Biology established in 1942 and the Department of Molecular Biology established in1961 as the Institute of Molecular Biology. The division consists of seven major laboratories, each of which includes several research groups. Activities of the division centers on the molecular and cellular bases of various biological events. All the faculty members are also responsible for teaching undergraduate students in the Department of Biological Science. This division was selected as one of the Centers of Excellence by the Ministry of Education(Monbusyo).
