The Department of Microbiology, Department of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, our school was established in 1977 and is mainly responsible for the teaching of the university department (including the departments of medicine, dentistry, medical technology and nursing). In 1984, the first doctoral class of our school was established (now the Institute of Micro-Implementation (Ph.D. Class A)) to actively cultivate high-level R&D talents in micro-immune fields. In response to the trend of cross-disciplinary research, our institute established a program of molecular medicine in cooperation with the Academia Sinica in 2003 (now the program of Molecular Medicine of Yangming University), and in 2005, a program of genome science was established in cooperation with the Genome Research Center of Academia Sinica ( It is now ﹝Doctoral Class B Group﹞). In 2013, a micro-exemption group was established (now ﹝Doctoral Class C Group﹞).

At present, there are 10 full-time teachers, 1 joint teacher, 1 special lecture by the principal, 6 part-time teachers and 27 doctoral class instructors, and 1 project teaching assistant and 1 project assistant.

(2) Development vision :

  1. To become a top educational unit in the field of life sciences, and to cultivate first-class research and teaching talents as the backbone of national academic and industrial development.
  2. Become a top research institution in the field of biomedicine, with international competitiveness in the professional field, and gain recognition from peers.
  3. Cultivating future leaders in industry, government, academia and research

(3) Achievement strategy :

Emphasis on the overall cognition of life sciences and professional training in the field of micro-exemption Develop the habit and ability of self-directed learning and life-long learning Ability to identify problems and solve problems Possess good language expression and writing ability, can effectively use limited manpower, material resources and time in experimental work, and have team research spirit. Encourage integrated research and cross-disciplinary research and development of basic and (clinical) applications. Carefully select important research topics and emphasize internationalization , in order to achieve world-class standards as the benchmark.
