Obesity and iron deficiency (ID) remains the most common nutritional disorder worldwide. I am intrigued by questions: How to maintain a healthy body weight? Why have obese individuals increased the risk of micronutrient deficiencies? How does ineffective iron trafficking cause altered body composition and metabolic disorder diseases? How should we treat those patients? Can digital technology help us with better nutrition care? Professor Jung-Su Chang’s lab is currently investigating the effectiveness of digital technology (e.g. FoodApp, 3D/AR food model) on obesity-related nutrition care, and is also developing alternative nutrition therapy for patients with anemia of inflammation.

English Score: TOEFL iBT 79 or IELTS 5.5 or above
In spite of advances in cancer treatment, a subpopulation of tumor cells known as cancer stem cells (CSCs) may renew themselves to resist treatment and drive the metastasis of cancer. We use CSCs as a research model to investigate three primary research topics, including 1) mitochondrial bioenergetics, 2) transcription factor small-molecule drugs, and 3) exosome-based medication. For the study of regenerative medicine, induced pluripotent stem cells and mesenchymal stem cells are used for exosome-based drugs, tissue repair, and cancer treatments.

The crosstalk of epigenetic remodeling and metabolic rewiring is among the gastrointestinal cancer hallmarks. Epigenetic gene regulation is well known to facilitate metabolic reprogramming in cancer cells, meanwhile, specific metabolites have been identified as substrates or cofactors of chromatin-modifying enzymes or proteins for survival and homeostasis. Various metabolic alterations and epigenetic modifications also reportedly drive cancer initiation and immune escape in the tumor microenvironment. Studying these fields will be more significant to discover new therapeutic targets and translational applications in gastrointestinal cancers.

APPLICATIONS OF BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING FOR THERAPIES OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES

Taipei Medical University

Taipei , Taiwan
English Requirements: TOEFL ITP, TOEFL iBT, IELTS
English Score: TOEFL iBT 79 or IELTS 5.5 or above
Cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of the death in the world, resulting more total deaths than all cancers combined. During a heart attack, approximately 1,000,000,000 contractile cardiomyocytes (heart muscle cells) die due to oxygen deprivation. For patients who survive the initial heart attack, their damaged heart will struggle to provide oxygenated blood to meet demands of the body. The lost cardiomyocytes are replaced by non-contractile collagen/scar tissue (pathogenic remodelling) and many patients progress to heart failure. There are very few current treatments to prevent this process from occurring. In this program we can discuss the latest research into ways to reduce cardiac damage, pathogenic remodelling and encourage regeneration. That includes medical devices to support the heart, biomaterials to improve repair, and stem cells, nanomedicines and gene therapies to aid in regeneration.
