系所特色

本系發展重點主要以生物技術及醫藥相關研究領域為主,也兼顧本系專業師資的研究主軸,同時鼓勵學生學習科技相關智慧財產權之相關法律,期望能為學術或生技業界貢獻一己之長。

就本系所開設課程與教育目標而言,本系所開設課程可分為「基礎科目」、「通識科目」、「綜合領域」、「專業選修」、「生物醫學」、「生技產業」等部分。為達成教育目標「培養學生對近代生物科技發展之瞭解及興趣」,本系開設之相關課程為大一的「基礎科目」和「通識科目」,在大二則為「綜合領域」;為達成教育目標「藉專業知識之訓練連結近代生物科技之應用」,本系課程規劃以大三的「生物醫學科技之發展」為主軸,並設計為各生科領域之「專業選修」;為達成教育目標「培養生技產學界之研發人材」方面,本系於大四規劃「生物科技產業之應用」之相關課程,分為「生物醫學」及「生技產業」。而研究所的課程安排為大學課程的延伸,以「進階生物科技研究」為核心,學生依興趣選擇指導老師,再由指導老師協助輔導選擇相關課程和進行論文的實驗研究。

綜此,本系的課程規劃特色,在大學部為「基礎生物科技之基礎知識」、「生物醫學科技之發展」、「生物科技產業之應用」,在碩士班為「進階生物科技之知識」、「生物科技之發展」、「生物科技產業之應用」,而在博士班則以「高等生物科技知識及研究」、「生物科技產業之應用研發」為主軸培養專業研究人才。

 

 

This department is built on the framework of physiology, pharmacology, and traditional Chinese herbal medicine. Besides, we integrate traditional Chinese and Western medicine, assemble diverse research expertise from our faculty members with many different professional fields, draw on the foundation of modern molecular biotechnology, combine the developmental foci of biotech industry, and make full use of all of the CMU-affiliated research centers, in hope of providing students with a wide view of the cutting edge of biotechnology. We also diversify the undergraduate curriculum so that it will equip students with the flexibility to respond to the rapid growing of biotech industry. Moreover, our department offers undergraduate students ample research training opportunities in their curricula. There are many labs to choose from: including Lab of Cardiovascular Disease, Lab of Bacterial Pathogenesis, Lab of Signal Transduction, Lab of Nano-Biomedical Engineering, Lab of Bioinformatics & Computer-Aided Drug Design, Lab of Protein Science & Technology, Lab of Immunology, Lab of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Lab of Nano-Biomaterials, Lab of Gene therapy, Lab of Anti-cancer Chinese herbal medicine, and Lab of Tumor Biology (Cancer Biology). 

The main focuses of Department of Biological Science and Technology are biotechnology and pharmaceutical-related researches as well as faculty’s professionals. We also encourage students to study relevant laws and technology-related intellectual property rights, hoping to contribute their own knowledge to academic and/or biotech industry.


In terms of courses and educational objectives in this Department, courses can be divided into basic courses, general education courses, integrated fields, professional elective courses, biomedicine and biotechnology industry. In order to achieve the aims of education-fostering the students to understand the modern development of biological sciences, the Department gives basic courses/general education, integrated fields for freshmen and sophomore, respectively. To achieve educational goals- training professional knowledge of modern applications of biotechnology, the Department gives professional elective courses for juniors with the themes of biomedical science and technology development. To reach educational goals of fostering students with research and development capacity, the Department gives related-courses of application of the biotechnology industry which are divided into biomedicine and biotechnology industry for seniors. 

The curriculum of graduate program are an extension of undergraduate arrangements with advanced biotechnology research serving as its core. Students are highly encouraged to select lab according to their own interest and assisted by supervisor who will mentor experiment and research in the future. 

In summary, the features of curricula at this Department are basic knowledge of biological science and technology, development of biomedical science and technology and application of biotechnology industry in the undergraduate program. Master program are including advanced knowledge of biotechnology, development of biotechnology and application of biotechnology industry. In PhD program, advanced knowledge of biotechnology research and development and application of biotechnology industry are the main cores.
