Enjoying student life and research in Tokyo Tech
Nguyen Kha The
2nd year master's student of the International Graduate Program

- It has been 2 years since I came to Japan to enter the graduate program in Tokyo Tech, but it is just like yesterday. Before I came to Japan, I imagined the graduate study was boring with full of experiments and classes. However, over the last two years, I have felt very happy and satisfied with colorful graduate student life in Japan. The graduate program in Tokyo tech is quite diverse. It provides not only academic classes but also classes to help improve communication skill such as Global Communication. I was very impressed by the way the teacher managed and discussed with students in that class. Moreover, the Bioscience and Biotechnology School often celebrates symposiums for students to expose their research to other students and communicate about their research. Tokyo Tech also often invites prestigious and famous professors in the world to give presentations and talks with students. That is really useful for me because I learned so much about academic knowledge and was inspired a lot by those great scientists. Besides studying in class, I spend most of my time for conducting my research in Kondoh sensei's laboratory to study cancer metastasis. Currently, I am studying and exploring the lung metastatic genes in osteosarcoma. I am really grateful to all the members of Kondoh lab for their help and support of my research and daily life. Moreover, I am so happy to make friends in Japan and join various sport activities such as volley ball, table tennis, and soccer. Currently, I belong to one soccer club and play soccer every week. It is really interesting and helpful, giving me a chance to relax and improve my health after doing experiments in laboratory. Finally, I would like to thank Professor Kondoh and all friends in Japan who have helped me a lot in my study and daily life.
