This dual-mentoring system aims to help students to identify the unmet medical needs and effectively find strategies and try to solve the problems. Students with MD or DDS background are preferred but not limited to apply this program. Academia Sinica provides 2 years of scholarships for all students who were accepted in this program.

The Master/PhD Program for Translational Medicine, Graduate Institute of Medical Informatics, TMU

This Master/PhD program is offered for international students to apply. Bioinformatic and meta-analysis is a modern methodology. As human genome decoding and clinic data accumulation and collection are more comprehensive, and more data mining and various bioinformatics data analysis tool are developed, this program includes the faculties from the program for translational medicine (wet lab) and from the graduate institute of medical informatics (dry lab) aims to provide a curriculum and training courses for students to learn and develop the analytic methodology for genomic analysis, the associations of signaling pathways or risk factors with the targeted disease, and the platforms or techniques to verify the associations in wet labs. Therefore students who are interested in computer science, biotechnology, and medical sciences are all welcome to apply this program.
