In addition, the university incorporates resources from the government departments and local regions. As a research hub, the university promotes research in medicine, medical engineering, and healthcare management. Integrated multi-disciplinary and cross-institutional research and development, as well as international liaisons with industries all enable the university to attract domestic and foreign talents to join our research teams, innovate our research features and use research as a basis for teaching and production.  In this way, we are able to cultivate good-quality high-level manpower, form a virtuous circle, expand research translation efficiency, and fulfill the social responsibility of the university.


Research features

Centering on biotechnology research and medical studies, Chang Gung University set up research centers in medicine, engineering, management and other related fields. Furthermore, the university integrates research resources from an array of research teams to achieve the best results. In addition, we apply high technology to our two main research themes "cross-platform precision medical strategy" and "comprehensive smart health care". Our goal is to develop a comprehensive smart health care “iHealthCare” system, so as to continue promoting interdisciplinary, international cutting-edge advanced research and cultivating talents. To develop a number of interdisciplinary research centers is another focus of the university.  We have been working towards the establishment of interdisciplinary research centers, as well as integrating and coordinating each college’s expertise in various fields, including precision medicine, healthy aging, disease infection, biomedical engineering, data science, artificial intelligence, management, decision-making optimization, and long-term health care, etc. It is worth noting that research objectives in various fields in conjunction with artificial intelligence technology serve to guide teachers to participate in relevant research and industry-academia cooperation. We expect that such an approach could improve interdisciplinary cooperation and add value to research and its application.
