Welcome to the Department of Life Sciences at NCKU. We are located on the Cheng-Kung campus adjacent to the Medical school in Tainan City.
The Department was founded in 1982 previously known as the Department of Biology. Our research programs cover a breadth of biological systems, including Biomedicine, Genomics & Biotechnology, and Ecology. A unifying theme of our research is to understand the molecular mechanism of cells and organisms, and the evolution between species. This basic knowledge can lead us to understand the interactions between genomics and environment and mechanisms of human diseases.
Our Department is vibrant and interactive. If you have any questions, please contact us.
