Our department is one of the best educational and research Institutes in Taiwan and NCKU is the best university in southern Taiwan. All the faculty members obtained their PhDs from prestigious universities throughout the world, such as Taiwan, USA, UK and Germany.
Dynamic research themes are the excellent features of the Department, especially for infectious diseases researches, which include viruses (special focus on Dengue and Enteroviru71) and bacterial (special focus on group A streptococci and Clostridium difficile), and other diseases including cancers, allergy and Chinese medicine.
Our goal is to nurture the students to be future scientific and society leaders. For this we has an enthusiastic and creative curriculum to inspire and educate our students to learn by actively attending special seminars, departmental progress reports (twice a year), regular laboratory and group meetings, and Journal clubs.
One of incentives in our department is that our students have the opportunity to enter the integrated PhD program in the Institute of Basic Medical Sciences of this college before or after finishing the Master’s program.
