This major covers radiation generators and industrial application of radiation for medicine, biology, chemistry, materials, process, etc. and consists of two sub-majors in Radiation Life Science and Accelerators and Quantum Beams. The sub-major Radiation Life Science provides basic and applied research curriculums for analysis of living organisms in response to radiation and for development of novel bio-molecules using radiation and radioisotope-based technologies, respectively. Accelerators and Quantum Beams provides curriculums on particle beams, optics, radiation, plasma, etc. to develop innovative quantum beams.
This major aims to develop new radiation fusion biotechnology based on systematic analysis of changes in living organisms in response to ionizing radiation. The basic research curriculum consists of radiation biology, molecular biology, cell biology, medical biology, biochemistry, immunology etc., to analyze radiation response of living organisms from the life science point of view. The applied research curriculum consists of radiation technologies converged with genetic and protein engineering, radioisotope-based technology, etc., for development of novel bio-molecules that can be used in the field of bio-industry.
‘Accelerators and Quantum Beams’ aims to develop innovative quantum beams applicable to material study, medical diagnosis and treatmen, and defense based on accelerators and lasers. It will provide advaned educations on particle beams, optics, radiations and plasmas with professional training for its applications
