The Institute of Biomedical Sciences (IBMS) at NSYSU was established in 1999 with the mission to prepare students to fully engage and actively participate in all areas of the exciting and rapidly expanding field of biomedical sciences. Programs offered by the institute are MS (since 1999) and PhD (since 2002).
Research is an integral part of teaching at IBMS, NSYSU. Faculty members share their research findings in the classroom and students learn firsthand about discovery while working with professors in the laboratory. During the past decade, infrastructures including the accessibility of a large number of E-Journals in NSYSU library through the internet, and the core facility equipping a series of precision instruments at IBMS, which are both essential for biomedical research (cellular, molecular biology, genomics and proteomics, etc), have been well established. Our institute moreover preserves quite a few hardcopy literatures from earlier ages without E-Journals available. The National Science Council core laboratory founded at NSYSU further brings in new research resources and provides an easy-to-access principle for our students.
