On behalf of the Department of Biochemistry, I would like to express my warm welcome to everyone who is interested in pursuing graduate training and research collaboration opportunities at our department. We have a long history of offering a leading program in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in Thailand for almost 50 years. A large number of our alumni are key players in Thai and international scientific communities. Based on Thai university ranking in the year 2005 by Thai Commission on Higher Education (CHE), we were the top-ranked Biochemistry program in Thailand.
Our department's main mission is to provide an excellent training program for M. Sc. and Ph.D. students in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and to conduct world-class research. Our academic curriculum has been regularly enhanced and offers up-to-date knowledge in Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology. Research conducted in our department covers frontier research areas in 7 fields:
- Aquatic Molecular Biology
- Cancer and Stem Cell Biology
- Gene Regulation and Metabolic Science
- Structural Biology and Enzyme Catalysis
- Plant Molecular Biology
- System Biology
With a wide range of research topics, students enrolling in the program can be sure that their favorite research choices can be met. Our facilities are well equipped with state-of-the-art instruments, providing unlimited opportunities for students in carrying research experiments. In addition, all students with high performance in academic activity and research productivity are provided with scholarships. Staff and students regularly participate in international conferences and collaborative projects, providing opportunities to interact with scientists overseas. With our rigorous training program, we hope that our graduates will be successful in their future scientific careers by conducting effective independent research that leads to new findings and innovations.
Overall, our department provides stimulating atmosphere with high level of scientific and academic integrity, and yet is friendly and collegial.
