The Taiwan International Graduate Program (TIGP) in “Molecular and Cell Biology” (MCB) is sponsored by the Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB), Academia Sinica in cooperation with the Institute of Life Sciences (ILS), National Defense Medical Center. It is a multi-discipline, integrative graduate program, reflecting the trend of integrating the major fields of modern basic biology. Faculty of the MCB program consists of top researchers in Taiwan. Research interests cover a wide range of biological questions and experimental systems. This graduate program aims to provide solid training to Ph.D. students for a future career in basic and applied research in modern biology. Academia Sinica provides an international environment, which is culturally rich and intellectually stimulating. English is used for courses, seminars and discussions. Most of the labs have experience in hosting international scholars, postdocs, or students.
