Brief Introduction

The Institute of Molecular Medicine (IMM) advocates an integrated approach to conduct research in the field of molecular medicine and designs graduate programs at both master and doctoral level.
Currently, IMM consists of nine full-time faculty members actively engaged in various research fields including theoretical pharmacology, neurophysiology, cellular responses to DNA damages and DNA repair, medical applications of physical means, medical microbiology, developmental biology and bioenergetics.

Special Features of the Institute

Faculty members of IMM have strong collaborations with scientists of other research institutes and hospitals such as The Academia Sinica, The National Health Research Institutes, The National High Speed Computer Center/Synchrotron, The Animal Technology Institute of Taiwan, National Taiwan University Hospital at Hsinchu, Veterans General Hospital, Chung Gang Medical University, and Mackay Memorial Hospital. Currently, IMM is establishing scientific exchange programs with Institutes abroad such as The Department of Biology and Institute for Protein Chemistry of Osaka University (Japan).
