Bachelor’s Program

Biomedicine is a collective name for the biological topics focusing primarily with human health and well-being. Biomedicine’s scope includes analyzing human biological samples, performing research on human and animal diseases, participating in the development of therapeutic strategies, such as vaccines, medicines and medical treatments, both in 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 the research on human health with drug development. Currently, our program offers two specialization streams that focuses on human diseases, which are tumor biology and infectious diseases. We utilize the triple-helix (academia, business and government) approach that strategizes and implements the most relevant Biomedicine research and development to the community.

Vission and Mission

To become ASEAN’s leading Biomedicine program by 2034 which focuses on research and innovation

Marsia Gustiananda, Ph.D.

Head of Biomedicine

Biomedicine is the primary spearhead that leads the discovery of novel therapies to cure human diseases. It is important that Biomedicine students understand how human body works at molecular level. This knowledge will enable them to devise therapeutic strategies. We are nurturing our students to become well-rounded biomedical scientists who are able to contribute to the health and the wellbeing of the community.

The Biomedicine study program at i3L focuses on Infectious Diseases and Tumor Biology, which are still major health problems in Indonesia. Students are trained in extensive practical and implementative projects, both nationally and internationally, to develop their pathways towards becoming biomedical experts. We take pride in our students for their achievements and accomplishments during their study at i3L. Our alumni are qualified to study in world class PhD programs, such as Melbourne University, directly after completing their study at i3L. Our students also won a number of prestigious international awards that enable them to do internship and thesis projects, at top class Biomedicine research institutes all over the world, which are integral parts of our curriculum. We welcome new students who have passion in Biomedicine and curiosity in life sciences to join our i3L family

Why the Biomedicine Program at i3L?

Adhika Shanti | Biomedicine Student Cohort 2016

Amgen Scholars Program gave me a once in a lifetime experience. During the program, I had the chance to learn new research skills, social skills, networking, career knowledge, and forge new friendships. I can say it was not just an ordinary summer research program compared to my previous research internships: it gave me new skills and broader knowledge on science. It also gave me an insight on career choices I can actually pursue. I used to believe that a career in science was always related to being a doctor, pharmacists, lecturer, or R&D in a drug company. Now I know that there are actually a lot more different types of jobs which can give me exciting experiences and a chance for me to develop myself as a person. Be brave, dream big! After meeting and working with my amazing peers and professors, I started to realize that there is no such thing as an impossible achievement: I can always make it if I give my best and do everything for the good of society. What I could say to the other students like me out there: apply to ASP and experience its benefits yourself!

Poulina Phangrestu and Anne Gabriel Sondakh:

Both are accepted as interns at the Department of Molecular Oncology at Institute of Developmental, Aging, and Cancer (IDAC), Tohoku University (ranked 2nd best university in Japan).
