Life sciences explore the knowledge from micro-levels, such as molecular and cellular levels, to a level of organisms. Life Sciences aim to improve the quality of human life by the application of the newly identified principles through education and basic researches. Key research areas include biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, microbiology, genetics, immunology, human physiology, neuroscience, developmental biology, virology, plant physiology, plant life sciences, plant molecular developmental biology, cancer biology, bioinformatics, structural biology, biophysics, and genomics. The goal of the department of Life Sciences is to nurture creative talents through world-class research and education.
