PhD in Bioscience and Biomedical Engineering The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
Bioscience is a diverse but often converging field of study that applies knowledge to develop biological solutions to sustain, restore, and improve the quality of life for humans, plants, and animals. Biomedical Engineering is the application of engineering principles and design concepts to biology and medicine for advanced healthcare in diagnostics, monitoring, and therapy. Bioscience and Biomedical Engineering are strongly interdisciplinary which involve Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, IT, and Computer Science.
The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) Program in Bioscience and Biomedical Engineering aims to provide a well-rounded education as well as rigorous research training to prepare students to become versatile and knowledgeable professionals. Areas of research include regenerative medicine and tissue engineering, molecular and cell biology, precision medicine, plant biology, Chinese medicine, healthy aging, biostatistics, bioinformatics, and data mining.
Ph.D. graduates should be capable of conducting high-quality original research, creating new knowledge, deriving valuable insights, and making tangible impacts in academia and the field.
