  The mission of the department is to create new knowledge for the discovery and development of new therapeutic agents based on the structure of functional genes or proteins, which are related to cancer, virus infection, or other major diseases. Some of our faculties are nationally and internationally recognized for their innovative scientific contributions in basic and applied research.

  Current faculty research areas include: 1) Discovery and optimization of drug candidate. 2) Nucleic acid based drug discovery. 3) Synthesis and evaluation of novel saccharide. 4) Synthetic methodologies. 4) Development of the methodology of structure-based drug design. The researches are funded by the Ministry of Science and Technology, the National Natural Science Foundation, the Ministry of Education, and cooperative contracts with pharmaceutical companies.
