Clinical Medical Sciences

Our program will provide the opportunity to focus on the translation of medical scientific discoveries into the application of therapies, treatments, diagnosis and prevention of the diseases. The main objective of this program is to encourage medical doctors to have a high capability to raise medical research questions and uncovering new knowledge that will directly advance patient care. The program’s faculty includes clinicians, researchers and preclinical Professors will provide students an understanding of the relevance of basic biomedical science to human disease through an exploration of the foundations of translational and
clinical research and through interactions with medical practitioners.

Department of Anatomy

The main researches are focusing on both of the macroanatomy and the microanatomy for clinical applications such as analyses of bones for personal identificatio and the effects of herbal extracts on cellular tissue and organ system levels. The studies of chromosomal aberrations from human amniotic fluid cells, molecular biology of stem cells, and neuronal networks involved in dementia are of our interests


Department of Microbiology

Four-cored research fields in our departments are immunology, virology, bacteriology, and mycology. Research areas conducting in the department comprise both basic and applied research in the rapidly growing fields of medical microbiology and immunology. Our main research topics include viral gastroenteritis, Dengue vaccine development, AIDS-related mycoses, antibiotic resistance in bacteria, emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases such as Legionella pnuemophila and Streptococcus suis, gut microbiota and immune
system, and probiotics in medical applications.
