IT CONVERGENCE ENGINEERING

BIOTECHNOLOGY

RESEARCH AIM

The major research challenges for Biotechnology include understanding how biomarkers can be effectively used to evaluate drug therapy. This requires the development of new biotechnology methods to interpret complex genomics processes.

EDUCATION AND RESEARCH

Education on this topic builds upon the fundamentals of biological systems, such as understanding signal transduction in a cell, and integrates elements from the other IT convergence engineering courses to enable the student to understand how to build new components and systems for U-Health applications. Research in this area uses the theory learned to help prototype new U-Health applications, such as building very low power body sensors and devices.
