Department of Life Science NDHU


  The Department of Life Science was established with the graduate program in 1996, and the undergraduate program was initiated in the following year. Currently, the Department has 12 full-time faculty members, 2 administrative staff, and about 300 students including 220 undergraduate and over 60 graduate students in M.S. and Ph.D. program.


  We are providing the quality education, through both teaching and research, necessary to meet the needs of contemporary biotechnology research. Our faculty members aggressively pursue research in many areas of the science including:



(1) Cellular biotechnology - stem cell biology, virology and tumor biology;

(2) Resource biotechnology - natural compounds and drug development;

(3) Agricultural biotechnology - transgenic plants and biological control;

(4) Nano-biotechnology - application of nano-particles in medicine;

(5) Bioinformatics and drug design - virtual screening and molecular modeling.


Please refer to the Faculty for further information about each faculty member's expertise. Research projects are continuously conducted through collaboration with and gaining financial support from a wide range of funding sources such as Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), and Council of Agriculture.


Graduates from our program are either pursuing higher education or successful in acquiring research assistants or post-doctoral employment. Undergraduate students gain valuable experience in the lab by working under one of the professors. We are seeking highly motivated students interested in pursuing research and professional careers. Students interested in pursuing post-graduate studies in the Department of Life Sciences are strongly recommended to contact the relevant faculty researcher.
