ISU Students Preserve the Ocean Through Internships in Japan

ISU, with a strong commitment to international initiatives and recognized as one of the few comprehensive universities in Taiwan with a medical college, continues its tradition of active international exchanges. This year, the Department of Medical Science and Biotechnology under the College of Medical Science and Technology forged a significant industry-university internship agreement with Japan’s sole coral reef research institute. This collaboration allows ISU students in the Department of Medical Science and Biotechnology to intern and participate in research on coral reef ecology in Japan. This unique opportunity allows ISU students to enhance their global perspectives during their academic journey while gaining insights into the importance of preserving marine ecosystems.
