Department of Microbiology and Immunology

Organization profile

Organisation profile

To understand the dynamic and vast body of advanced knowledge in these fields, the Division of Microbiology was established in the Department of Medicine in 1984. Since then, we have further expanded to provide a Masters program (1991) and an integrated Doctoral program (1992), forming the ‘Department of Microbiology and Immunology’ (DMI). In 2005, the department of Parasitology was absorbed into the department allowing students to have a more diverse option in their chosen field of research. The Department is located on the 11th floor of the Medical Research Building. Currently, we have 12 full-time faculty members and 11 adjuncts members. Our faculty has been trained in various countries, including Taiwan, America, England, Japan, and Germany, respectively. The diversity of the cultural experiences of DMI members fosters an academic atmosphere of liberty and mutual respect, which are reflected in the wide spectrum of curricula and team work style. Our students benefit from the multi-disciplinary training and exposure to different academic backgrounds.
