Program Introduction

This program emphasizes interdisciplinary learning and research training in Molecular Medicine, with a focus on disease-related issues, leading to a Master’s degree. In the field of molecular medicine, molecular biology techniques are used to establish and investigate models of human diseases, which are used to develop disease diagnostic and treatment strategies that complement clinical medical research. By adopting an interdisciplinary learning model, this program cultivates problem-oriented research skills in biomedical science without the constraints of traditional life sciences. The program places a strong emphasis on developing multi-skilled professionals who can bring about positive changes in the workplace. Graduates will have a fundamental grasp of scientific reasoning, enabling them to effectively engage and collaborate with professionals from diverse fields, inspiring innovative technologies and applications.

Upon meeting all academic requirements and qualifications, graduates will be awarded a Master of Science degree.

Group A – Domestic Students

This program is a collaborative effort between the College of Life Sciences at National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University and the Genomics Research Center at Academia Sinica, aimed at nurturing talent in biomedical science.

The Academia Sinica aims to cultivate interdisciplinary research talents, enrich research and innovation potential, and enhance Taiwan’s academic competitiveness on the global stage. Actively promoting collaborations with major universities in Taiwan, the institution has initiated various graduate programs. This particular program integrates the strengths of both the Genomics Research Center at Academia Sinica and the College of Life Science at National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University. Leveraging the expertise of faculty members from both institutions, the program seeks to nurture biomedical professionals with interdisciplinary competencies, fostering mutual academic exchange and collaboration benefits.

Students entering this program may choose to conduct their master’s thesis research under the supervision of faculty members from both National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University College of Life Sciences and the Genomics Research Center at Academia Sinica.

Students enrolled in this program will receive a monthly stipend of 16,000 New Taiwan Dollars during the first and second years of their studies. (Note: The amount of the stipend is subject to change, adjustment, or cancellation at the discretion of the program.)

Group B – International Students

Master’s program students have the opportunity to enter the biotechnology industry or pursue further studies in the doctoral program at the College of Life Science through various admission channels.
