Medical Genomics and Proteomics

The Graduate Institute of Clinical Genomics was established in 2008 and started to recruit students in 2009. It is definitely different from the other clinical departments or basic medical sciences departments in the Medicine College, NTU since we aim for cultivating the future professionals in integrated crossdisciplined research in clinical genomics.

We develop the customized course curriculum and training for our Ph.D. students who might come from different backgrounds so as to promote them to be well trained in applications, research and development of clinical genomics.

Academic Research

To conduct the clinical genomics researches that focus on translational medical studies. We aim for the researches and developments of monogenic diseases and common complex diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancers.
