11. The University of York- Department of Health Sciences Rated equal first for health services research in the UK, our Graduate School provides a vibrant, multidisciplinary learning environment. We offer a broad specturm of full- and part-time educational programmes in public health, health sciences and health services research. Our wide range of study pathways, combined with a flexible portfolio of modules, is designed for those wishing to develop and follow a career in health-related research, as well as matching the needs of health professionals.
Our multidisciplinary research teams work in many different health-related areas including cardiac care and haematological cancers, mother and infant health, mental health and addiction, inequalites in health, wound care, and complementary medicine.
12. The University of York- Department of Social Policy and Social Work Research in the Department of Social Policy and Social Work has recently been rated as among the best in the country. We have been placed in the top five of large departments nationally and commended highly for the quality of our work. We have a large and thriving research community, which, with around one hundred staff, forms one of the largest groupings of social researchers in Europe. This includes two internationally renowned research centres: the Social Policy Research Unit and the Centre for Housing Policy.
The Department is also one of seven departments nationwide taking part in the Making Research Count dissemination initiative, which offers staff in Local Authority Social Services, the NHS and voluntary organisations the opportunity to work in partnership with academic colleagues to develop evidence-based social work and social care practice.
13. University of CambridgeWe are one of the world's oldest universities and leading academic centres, and a self-governed community of scholars. Cambridge comprises 31 Colleges and over 150 departments, faculties, schools and other institutions.
14. University of Tokyo - Faculty of Science In the Faculty of Science, education and research in relation to science are carried out. Science is a scholarship to search for the fundamentals and laws of the natural world through a dialogue with nature. Starting with simple questions like "Why?" and "How come?" we approach the mysteries of nature. Many of our motives for research arise out of genuine interest and the wisdom that human beings have gathered since time immemorial. Sometimes such understanding of nature is immediately applied to the real world, other times it brings about drastic changes in our lives over a long span of time.
For example, let us look at quantum mechanics that describes the world on the micro-scale. This field derives from the search through genuine interest in atomic structure, the true nature of light and so on. The results of such quests produced fruitful results; through the understanding of the behavior of electrons in materials, semiconductor technologies and computer technologies have been created, and further, the modern information-based society was developed. Quantum mechanics clarified the true nature of chemical bonds and brought about understanding of nanoscale molecular structures and chemical reactions. Based on such understanding we are able to develop various functional materials. Now we are surrounded by products that are outcomes of such quests in quantum mechanics. Meanwhile, the concept of molecular structures is extended to include organisms and ― triggered by the discovery of the double helix structure of DNA ― a technological explosion in biotechnology occurred. Were it not for the studies in quantum mechanics, many of the conveniences we enjoy today would not be available.
The importance of science lies in not only the basics that are positioned at the opposite side of applications. The understanding of nature forms the base of our view of nature as well as the universe. It teaches us the importance of living in harmony with nature and sometimes it gives us wisdom to stand up against forces of nature. Through such functions, science gives safety to society as well as peace of mind. Thus, science forms the deepest foundation of culture human beings have developed. In other words, the development of science enriches the view of nature that human beings have and motivates us to carve out the future. There are many mysteries in nature. Those who intend to learn science should have a large-scale dream such as "I want to solve this mystery" and acquire strong abilities to solve the mystery through learning science.
