Director Jan-Gowth Chang graduated from School of Medicine, Kaohsiung Medical University and after experiences at Taipei Municipal Jen-AI Hospital, Taipei Medical College, Taipei Veterans General Hospital, and visiting Scholar to Yale University for advanced training. In 1999, he became the Director of Department of Medical Laboratory of China medical College Hospital, and then the department was expanded to Department of Laboratory Medicine by him, with “Service, Education, Research” as the 3 main development directions. He left CMUH to KMUH at 2006. He returned to the Hospital at 2012, and is dedicated to the development of precision medicine. He established the center for precision medicine in 2017 and developed clinical applications of precision medicine.
Ting-Yuan Liu graduated from Graduate Institute of Medicine, College of medicine, Kaohsiung Medical University in 2016. The topic of his thesis is “To Investigate the Mechanism of hnRNP A1 on Muscle Development and Explore Arecoline on Muscle Differentiation”. His research field includes mice model, alternative splicing. He was employed as the postdoctoral research fellow of Center for Precision Medicine, China Medical University Hospital. Now, his research field involves carcinogenesis of oral cancer and other cancer by using next generation sequencing, and DNA microarray for disease association study.
