Biomedicine is a collective name for the biological topics focusing primarily on 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.
The 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 focus 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.
To become ASEAN’s leading Biomedicine program by 2034 which focuses on research and innovation
To provide education in Biomedicine which is based on research and innovation according to international standards of the discipline
To disseminate innovations and research results in Biomedicine, both nationally and internationally
To create a community of capable Biomedicine experts who can contribute to the development of communities around the world
To produce high-quality Biomedicine graduates who are ready to compete globally
"Biomedicine is the primary spearhead that leads the discovery of novel therapies to cure human diseases. It is important that Biomedicine students understand how the human body works at the 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 implementation 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 studies at i3L. Our alumni are qualified to study in world-class Ph.D. programs, such as Melbourne University, directly after completing their studies 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 a passion for Biomedicine and curiosity in life sciences to join our i3L family." Marsia Gustiananda, Ph.D. Head of Biomedicine
Why the Biomedicine Program at i3L?
Leading the Development of New Therapeutics
Biomedicine at i3L is the first and the main player in designing novel drugs and therapeutic approaches that target human diseases
i3L conceptualizes Biomedicine as the basis to study human health at molecular and cellular levels. We incorporate Biomedicine with other life-sciences disciplines to optimize research and discovery in finding treatment for human diseases.

"My 4 years of university life at i3L have been spectacular! i3L offers me opportunities to learn and conduct research. i3L also stimulates students' analytical skills and personal growth. Thank you, i3L!" Herviany Ongso, S.Biomed. Alumna of Biomedicine 2015 - Consumer good market Listerine Johnson & Johnson
"Spending four years at i3L taught me to grow both personally and academically. Although my first semester at i3L was rough, the intensiveengagement with faculty members, lab assistants, and staff members has provided me with a wholesome study experience. Moreover, through theinternship programs, I was able to do my research at Soochow University, China, and Duke-NUS Medical School, Singapore. I am also grateful for the support I received from the institution which allowed me to participate in competitions and conferences, both nationally and internationally. These experiences prepared me for my Ph.D. study at the School of Biomedical Sciences, University of Melbourne. Words cannot express my gratitude for the continuous support from everyone at i3L." Gio Fidelito, S.Biomed. Alumnus of BioMedicine 2015 - Research Scholar (Ph.D.) University of Melbourne
