The Division of Life Science is newly established through the reorganization of former Departments of Biochemistry and Biology. The mission of the new Division is to establish and sustain a reputable academic program in life science by achieving excellence in research and education, and by making significant contributions to biotechnological innovations in regional and international arenas. We strive to provide an ideal environment for student learning and for tackling the challenges in modern life science. The Division offers broad and comprehensive undergraduate and postgraduate programs, aimed at stimulating students’ interest in the study of life science subjects, engaging in scientific endeavors, and contributing to the global scientific community.
