A PhD programme provides an opportunity to contribute towards cutting-edge research in an area of academic study aligned with your passions and interests.

Taipei Medical University (TMU) offers a trio of dynamic PhD programmes that promise to invigorate the realms of translational science, cancer biology and drug discovery, and medical neuroscience. These programmes not only delve into cutting-edge research but also prioritise hands-on experience, collaboration, and global engagement.

We spoke to Taipei Medical University to learn more about these three exciting areas of PhD study.

International PhD and Master Programme for Translation Science

TMU's International PhD and Master Programme for Translational Science aims to bridge the gap between bench-side research and clinical application. With a focus on removing barriers and fostering communication between basic researchers and medical practitioners, this programme equips students with the skills needed to propel advancements in diagnosing, monitoring, and treating diseases.  

Emphasising hands-on exposure and collaboration with industrial partners, students delve into advanced subjects such as stem cells, structural biology, biologics and animal models. Graduates of this programme are poised to become leaders and educators in the field of translational medicine.

PhD and Master Programme for Cancer Biology and Drug Discovery

The Cancer Biology and Drug Discovery programmes at TMU are dedicated to combating cancer through innovative research and drug development. Established with the goal of cultivating research talents in cancer biology and drug research, these programmes integrate a range of expertise, including biomarker and omics-based target identification, AI-based drug discovery, and drug development.  

By fostering collaboration between faculty members and industry partners, students gain invaluable experience in developing cutting-edge therapeutic strategies for cancer prevention and treatment. With a focus on making breakthroughs in cancer research, these programmes provide a comprehensive education from bench to bedside.

PhD and Master Programme in Medical Neuroscience

TMU's PhD Programme in Medical Neuroscience offers an immersive experience in the burgeoning field of neuroscience. With a focus on translational research related to clinical neuroscience topics such as developmental neuroscience, drug addiction, neurodegenerative diseases, and brain tumours, this programme welcomes international students with medical and biomedical backgrounds.  

Offering a wide range of courses covering neuroimaging, stem cell engineering, and epidemiology, students receive comprehensive training in medical neuroscience research. Collaborations with global laboratories and medical centres enhance students' research experiences, while regular international conferences keep them updated with the latest advancements in neuroscience.  

Additionally, TMU offers an International Master Programme in Medical Neuroscience for undergraduates looking to kickstart their journey in neuroscience research.

In conclusion, TMU's PhD programmes in translational science, cancer biology and drug discovery, and medical neuroscience offer exciting opportunities for students to delve into groundbreaking research, collaborate with industry leaders, and make meaningful contributions to the advancement of science and medicine.  

Whether it's pioneering new treatments for cancer or unravelling the complexities of the human brain, these programmes provide a platform for students to realise their potential and drive innovation in their respective fields.
