  1. 1. INSTITUTE OF CLINICAL MEDICINE INTRODUCTION The Institute of Clinical Medicine was established in August 1998 to provide physicians with MD or DDS degree and with in-depth research training in biomedical science. The students will be conferred a PhD degree after finishing the required courses and dissertation. AIMS OF EDUCATION The major purpose of this program is to provide physicians with an academic training in basic and clinical researches, so that they can apply the knowledge and methodology to solve or to improve the medical problems they encounter during clinical practice. In the meantime, the graduate students are expected to establish their academic career as a physician scientist in their medical field. FACULTIES Professor: 18 Associate Professor: 8 Assistant professor: 5 Besides the faculties of the Institute, the students may select professors from other department or institute in the medical school as their advisors depending on the expertise and fields they select. Each student should have two advisors, one clinician and the other basic scientist, to advise the conduction of his or her thesis.

  4. 4. The Institute has three common laboratories equipped with all the instruments for molecular biology and cell biology researches. Besides, 4 core laboratories are established for genomic and molecular studies: Microarray laboratory (director: Li-Wha Wu), Cytogentics, FISH and imaging analysis laboratory (director: H. Sunny Sun), Genotyping and oligonucleotide laboratory (director: H. Sunny Sun), and DNA sequencing laboratory (Director: H. Sunny Sun). Journals: Besides the journals in the central medical library which houses more than 800 current biomedical journals and 24,687 books, several core journals including Nature, Science, Nature Medicine, Oncogene, Nature Genetics, Journal of Virology, and Angiogenesis are subscrirad in the institute RESEARCH FOCUS AND FUTURE DEVELOPMENT The research in this Institute will reflect the studies in the medical center with an emphasis on the endemic and clinically important subjects. In oncology, the research focuses on hepatitis B and hepatocellular carcinoma, pancreatic cancer, colorectal cancer, blackfoot disease-associated cancers, betel nut chewing-related cancers, and the role of angiogenesis in turnorigenesis In infectious diseases, the drug resistance of bacteria and the virulence factors of EV71, hepatitis B and C, and Epstein-Barr virus are the central subjects. In genetic diseases, the Fragile X syndrome, sexual development and infertility, and psychiatric genetics are the major interests.
