Bio-Medical Converging Major is a multi disciplinary field which consists of 3 sub majors including Biological Chemistry, Medical Engineering and Neuroscience. Biological Chemistry focuses on new drug discovery based on understanding life phenomena using integrated approach of biology and chemistry while Biomedical Engineering engages on development of new biotechnology that can be applied for medical treatment and diagnosis on the basis of Engineering, Medicine and Biology. Neuroscience studies mechanisms underlying human cognition and brain disorders to find new treatment drug or technology. Bio-Medical provides World Class atmosphere and opportunity for cutting edge research on Biotechnology and Medicine.
