The Institute of Molecular Medicine (IMM), established in 2002, advocates an integrated approach to conducting research in the field of molecular medicine and offers graduate programs at both the masters and doctorate level. Currently, IMM consists of eleven full-time, one part-time, and three adjunct faculty members all actively engaged in various research fields including neurophysiology, cellular responses to DNA damage and DNA repair, cancer biology, human genetics, medical microbiology, metabolic and degenerative diseases, developmental biology, tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, and bioinformatics.
IMM shares facilities and resources with the other four Institutes of the College of Life Science, which is housed in two six-story buildings and contains state-of-the-art equipment such as confocal microscopes, epifluorescence microscopes, flow cytometers, electrophysiological recording equipment, real-time PCR, infrared imaging systems, ultracentrifuges, ELISA reader, fluorescence readers, automatic DNA sequencer, microarrayer, LC-Mass, HPLC, NMR, scanning electron microscope and electron microscope.
Faculty members of IMM have strong collaborations with scientists of other research institutes and hospitals such as The Academia Sinica, The National Health Research Institutes, The National High Speed Computer Center/Synchrotron, The Animal Technology Institute of Taiwan, National Taiwan University Hospital at Hsinchu, Veterans General Hospital, Chung Gang Medical University, and Mackay Memorial Hospital. Currently, IMM is establishing scientific exchange programs with Institutes abroad such as The Department of Biology and Institute for Protein Chemistry of Osaka University (Japan).
