Introduction

Life Science is a study about deep fundamental principles necessary for life to exist. Students learn about the birth of life and the essential metabolic processes needed to live. Through this discipline, students also learn about principles of life from small molecules to large ecosystems. For example, Molecular Biology, which is the foundation of this major, is a course that teaches about DNA and RNA, the basic nucleic acid molecules of living organisms (carbohydrates, proteins, fats) and life activities. Every living organism can save information necessary for their life in nucleic acid molecules called DNA or RNA and can transfer the information to proteins for vital activities. This is a phenomenon where very detailed and sophisticated reactions are closely linked.

By taking various theoretical Life Sciences courses and using knowledge obtained experiments, students can study the pathways of disease and develop treatments, restoration of ecosystem, and production of bioenergy.

Information

Highlights

Labs and Research Facilities (15 laboratories)
There are 15 different laboratories in the Department of Life Science. For example,  one laboratory conducts research on genetics and development using small nematodes while another laboratory studies plants’ hormone signaling using baby poles. The more laboratories there are in a department the more the scope of theory is widened, and, thus, knowledge during undergraduate studies becomes deep and varied. There are also more opportunities to practice biology because many experiments can be conducted. For undergraduates, it is important to study in relation to a student’s major, but it is equally essential to take in a variety of other courses. Given this, Life Science stands at a great advantage for students choosing this major.

Selected For Government Support Project BK21 

Hanyang University has continuously been selected for the BK21 project program since 1999. The BK21 project is a headed by the Ministry of Education with the goal of fostering world-class graduate schools and excellent local universities. The selected departments receive research grants from the government every year. Since 1999, our department was the only one in the nation to have two teams selected in 2008. The departments selected enable undergraduate and graduate students to have a better environment for experiments as well as more opportunities to interact with bioscientists through a variety of seminars. In 2013, two teams (Eco-Biofusion Research team and the Bio-Defense Research team) were selected and have been actively researching life science.
