Что я буду изучать?

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Program aims to cultivate doctoral graduates who are capable of the design, initiation and execution of original research, who can independently conduct advanced research projects, who possess both a broad knowledge of modern life science and an in-depth knowledge of specialized areas, and who can also contribute original knowledge to the field of life sciences by publishing their findings in peer-reviewed international journals.

Also, the Department of Life Science offers joint MD-PhD programs with both Peking University and Xiangya Medical School of Central South University. Students who have completed their bachelor’s degree from these institutions can apply for the joint MD-PhD programs. They are expected to fulfill all requirements for a PhD in 3-4 years, which will be awarded by HKUST. They will then return to their home universities for clinical training leading to an MD degree.

The programs are offered by the Division of Science with the following research foci and state-of-the-art facilities, providing students with an inspirational environment for learning and tackling the challenges in modern life science.

Research Foci

  • Cellular Regulation and Signaling
  • Cancer Biology
  • Developmental Biology
  • Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience
  • Macromolecular Structure and Function
  • Marine and Environmental Science
  • Biotechnology and Medicinal Biochemistry

Faculty members working in these areas form a coordinated research team. Such coordination takes full advantage of the faculty’s expertise in generating innovative development and productive research. At the same time, it creates a stimulating atmosphere in which students experience the challenge of modern research through direct participation.
