Special Features of the Dept. of Biomedical Engineering and Environmental Sciences 

 

The department has three teaching and research programs: 1. Molecular Biophotonics, 2. Medical Physics and Engineering, and 3. Environmental Molecular Science. The main research focus of the Molecular Biophotonics program includes (1) development and applications of biochips, (2) biophotonic measurements, (3) molecular imaging, (4) gene therapy, and (5) biona-notechnology. The main research focus of the Medical Physics and Engineering program includes the following areas: (1) development of imaging systems involving computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET), ultrasound (US), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), (2) radiotherapy, (3) nuclear medicine, and (4) radiation biology. The main research focus of Environmental Molecular Science includes (1) nano/ultratrace analysis, (2) fate and transport of contaminants, (3) biological response to environmental contaminants, and (4) interaction of chemicals at interfaces. 
International PhD Program in Biomedical Engineering
The International PhD Program in Biomedical Engineering is provided by the College of Nuclear Science. All lectures in this program are offered in English for international students. For more information, please see the website http://nucl-iphd.vm.nthu.edu.tw/be/super_pages.php?ID=be1.
