Program Description

Bachelor in Biomedicine

Indonesia International Instutite for Life Sciences (i3L)

Bachelor in Biomedince

Biomedicine is a collective name for the biological topics focusing primarily with human health and well-being. Biomedicine scope includes analyzing human biological samples, performing research on human and animal disease, participating in the development of therapeutic strategies, such as vaccines, medicines and medical treatments, both in the private industry as well as in governmental agencies. Biomedicine is the central and critical step for drug and therapy design and discovery.

Biomedicine study program offered in I3L focuses on research and innovation that bridge human health research to drug development in collaboration with medical school and pharmacy. Currently, our program offered two specialization streams that focuses on human diseases, which are tumor biology and infectious diseases. We utilize the triple-helix concept (academia, business and government) approach that strategise and implement the most relevant Biomedicine research and development to the community.

Unique Value Points

  • Pioneer - The first in Asia that develop streaming Biomedicine program (Infectious Disease, Tumor Biology).
  • Science - Internationally educated faculty members with strong background in education and research; research programs focusing on implementation of therapy or cure of diseases with interdisciplinary approaches.
  • Innovations - Development of novel therapeutic strategies that focus on personalized medicine and Indonesia’s biodiversity.
  • Globally Connected - Close collaborations with top-level international academic, industry, and government partners to support education, research and innovation.
  • Locally Embedded - Curriculum and research projects that are developed to meet the local needs of industry, academia, and government; harness of Indonesia’s rich biodiversity to enrich national natural commodities as alignment with national aspirations by 2020.

Program Learning Outcomes

Biomedicine study program is designed to achieve learning outcomes that provide required knowledge and skills for graduates to develop profesionally, whether in academic, industry or government sectors. This program also bridges student to take graduate study in Biomedical Field. I3L graduates in this program will possess:

  1. Relate molecular and cellular mechanism to human health and diseases.
  2. Explain principle of molecular biology, cellular biology, chemistry and microbiology.
  3. Relate structure and mechanism of actions of human organs in anatomy-physiology system.
