Duquesne Forges Academic Collaboration with Japan’s Daiichi University
Duquesne University today signed a five-year agreement for academic collaboration and exchange with the Daiichi University of Pharmacy of Fukuoka, Japan.
The agreement was established between Duquesne's Mylan School of Pharmacy and the Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences and the Daiichi University of Pharmacy, which is a part of the Tsuzuki Gakuen, one of the largest educational groups in Japan.
The collaboration was forged to broaden the international perspectives of the faculty and students of both institutions through scholarly, educational and cultural opportunities and to further enhance the research and education programs of both pharmacy schools. The agreement also allows for the exchange of faculty members and students for visitation and research collaboration as well as additional academic activities.
Duquesne President Dr. Charles J. Dougherty, Pharmacy Dean Dr. J. Douglas Bricker and Kimiko Tsuzuki, president of Daiichi University of Pharmacy and chancellor of Tsuzuki Gakuen each signed the official agreement.
