Department of Life Science

Life sciences is a discipline that strives to understand the nature of life by studying the form, structure, and function of living organisms, and comprises branches ranging from areas at the level of molecules all the way up to ecosystems. Thanks to the striking development of molecular biology of late, life sciences has become the most challenging area garnering attention in the 21st Century. Cultivating able life scientists has become urgent than ever with the exponential rise in social and economic interest in life sciences to treat cancer and other hard-to-cure diseases, prevent aging, and deal with the concept of cloning, as well as in the conservation of ecosystems and of fauna and flora resources. To meet these demands, this department is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment including electronic microscopes, fluorescence microscopes, chemidoc system, 2D-electrophoresis system, and thermal cyclers, as well as cell and tissue culture rooms, an animal breeding room, joint-equipment room, microscope room, fauna and flora specimen room, flora nursery fields, marine exploration vessels, and GPS navigation systems. Graduates can move into government service (as members of the National Institutes of Health, Rural Development Administration, National Institute of Biological Resources, Korea National Park Service, etc.) They can also pursue careers at public or private-funded research institutes (including the National Cancer Center, Korea Research Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology, Samsung Medical Center, and the research arms of LG and SK and other research centers). Alternatively, they can work at large hospital research centers, research arms of pharmaceutical companies, bio-venture companies, cutting-edge life sciences corporations, agriculture & fisheries companies, and more. Students can also go on to life science-related postgraduate schools or pursue studies at medical or dental schools.
