Course description

Biochemistry for Schools of Medicine & Chinese Medicine

This course aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the molecular aspects of living matter, including its structure, organization, and functions. The course will cover four main areas:
1. Structural Chemistry: This section explores the chemical composition of living matter and investigates the relationship between biological function and chemical structure.
2. Metabolism: Students will explore the chemical reactions that occur within living organisms, gaining insight into the intricate processes that sustain life.
3. Molecular Genetics: Introduce the principles of genetic material replication, recombination, and maintenance.
4. Internal Organization of the Cell: Examine the intricate organization and interactions within cellular structures.
Each subject covered in this course will be taught by faculty members specializing in the respective field. Their expertise and research interests will enrich students' learning experiences.
This course serves as an introductory course in biochemistry and molecular cell biology, designed specifically for undergraduate students. It provides a solid foundation for further studies in the field and offers valuable insights into the molecular underpinnings of life.

Biochemistry for Schools of Post Baccalaureate Nursing & Nursing

This course is intended for students in any field of science or engineering who want toone-semester introduction to biochemistry but do not intend to be biochemistry

majors. Our major goal of this course is to introduce the most up-dated biochemistry

knowledge including structure and function of protein, nucleic acid, lipid, carbohydrate

and their related diseases. Human genome has been decoded. The related biotechnology will be introduced.

Biochemistry Laboratory for Schools of Medicine & Chinese Medicine

This course familiarizes students with fundamental methods and techniques used for the diagnosis and analysis of biomolecules. The experiments focus on analyzing major macromolecules, with an emphasis on their clinical significance. Additionally, one-third of the course involves problem-based learning sessions led by a professor, where students discuss clinically relevant disorders, enhancing their integration and expression of knowledge. These sessions promote reflective reasoning and self-learning skills. Small group discussions are organized to deepen understanding, and at the end of the semester, one group presents their studied topics to the class.
