Molecular Medicine


The institute is an interdepartmental and cross-discipline unit aiming to investigate the molecular mechanism of various biomedical issues. Under this theme, researches in this department focus on signal transductions, protein-protein interactions, modulation of protein synthesis and degradation, and cytokine regulation in both normal and diseased cells. Normal developmental and disease processes in epithelium, nerve system and immune system are under active investigations in our department. The design of our graduate programs is to offer .interdisciplinary research environments for young scientists.

To fulfill this mission, model organisms used in our department including yeast, warm, fly and mice are used in our department. Graduate students are in a rich scientific environment to address the medical questions that they are interested in. Moreover, the laboratory facilities are designed to be open-style, which encourages intimate interactions between labs. Scientific interaction doesn’t confine only within in our institute. Our staffs are in collaboration with the medical doctors affiliated in National Taiwan University Hospital in several integrated research projects that target important medical issues such as autoimmunity, inflammation, and neuron degeneration. Our goal is to advance our current knowledge about life via our endeavors in understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying a living cell.
