Introduction

The Institute of Molecular Life Science & Technology was founded in 1998, combining the Genetic Engineering Institute and the Life Science Institute. It was established for creative research in the field of life science by researchers in pharmacology, biology, chemistry, and medicine.
The institute has been involved in this inter-disciplinary research since 1999 when it was selected by the Ministry of Education and Science Technology for the BK21 Science Technology Biology field. It seeks to find potential drugs for the prevention and treatment of diseases by synthesizing the target molecule - which plays a pivotal role in controling the disease within the body - through its discovery and research on the reaction mechanism. To this end, the goal of the Institute of Molecular Life Science & Technology is to grow into an international research institute in the fields of molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, bioinformatics, and proteomics, as well as developing new medicine which is a comprehensive discipline ranging from bioengineering to life sciences. By securing research funds from the Ministry of Education and Science Technology and the industry, the institute produces outstanding researchers by increasing research efficiency through focused investment on research organization, space, and facilities. It is striving to deliver internationally competitive research results through international and university-industry cooperation.
