The main purpose of this program is to cultivate talent for developing precision medical technology from the perspectives of big data, intelligent medical devices, and clinically initiated medicine to promote cross-disciplinary research, connecting with biotech and semiconductor industry with academia. The establishment of this program involves multiple colleges within NTU, including the Graduate School of Advanced Technology (GSAT), YongLin Institute of Health, College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and College of Medicine.
The program will offer a wide range of advanced courses taught by outstanding faculty members and experts. The program will include following sub-fields.
1. Precision medicine:
The main goal of this program is to train students in intelligent medicine. The curriculum includes integrated knowledge from cross-disciplinary fields such as genomics, bioinformatics, epidemiology, and public health to set new trends in life sciences and healthcare. This program will explore artificial intelligence 2.0 to assist precision medicine and healthcare.
2. Advanced medical imaging:
The focus will be on integrating structural and functional imaging, molecular and cellular imaging, and imaging systems as research and development priorities, and applying them to the diagnosis and treatment of health threats.
3. Innovative medical devices and Genomics:
(a) Medical devices: Design and development strategies for innovative medical devices utilizing cross-disciplinary technological knowledge such as, biomedical, electronics, semiconductors, information, software, optical/instrumentation, chemical, material, and machinery.
(b) Genomics: Training for precise gene sequencing methods is followed by the development of highly sensitive gene testing platforms for drug development. This part of the program can provide students with consistent theoretical and applied training to understand the cooperation between genomics basics and state-of-the-art practices.
