國立臺灣大學重點技術平台/NTU Consortia of Key Technologies

  To advance the University’s key instrument analysis techniques, research efforts, and international influence, the Office of Research and Development (ORD) has established the NTU Consortia of Key Technologies in the five domains of mass spectrometry, molecular imaging, electron microscopy, semiconductor processing and integrative biomedical science. The consortia are supported by an expert system consisting of professors, professional technical staff, as well as cutting-edge core facilities, and by the University's existing expensive instruments, to provide both basic analysis service and solutions to advanced problems. Besides basic analyses, the consortia also feature consulting and follow-up research services for highly challenging and cutting-edge research topics. The experts will first determine the difficulty level of questions and designate appropriate facilities in the consortia to help conduct research analysis based on the identified needs so that both the use of instruments and analytical precision can be maximized. With the consortia supported by experts, NTU is expected to elevate its research quality in relevant domains.

理學院 / College of Science



The Instrumentation Center was transformed from an NSTC (National Science and Technology Council) institution to a unit in College of Science on May 1, 1996, after approval by the Ministry of Education. Its running cost has been partially supported, on a project-based manner, by NSTC. The reservations of the service and machine time are opened to the public on the NSTC website (https://vir.nstc.gov.tw/) to ensure that these instruments are used efficiently by the academic as well as industrial users. Currently the Center consists of two divisions―"Analysis and Measurement" and "Marine Exploration".

The Center recruits experienced consultants to pursue excellent instrumental performance. Its trained technical staff are responsible for the instrumental operation and maintenance, as well as analyzing/interpreting results and assisting with related research tasks, including customized experimental design and state-of-the-art techniques. It also has an advisory board that formulates operational guidelines, reviews technical staff promotions, and facilitates cooperation with other units. It has provided services to numerous principal investigators, graduate students, undergraduates, and research fellows, benefiting NTU, domestic research institutes, and industries in the disciplines of physics, chemistry, life science, electrical engineering, materials science, and geology.

In the year of 2023, the Center performed a total of 70,000 service jobs in 68,000 working hours and made significant contribution to more than 300 peer-reviewed journal articles.

醫學院 / College of Medicine


The first core laboratory of NTUCM provides common research instruments for the entire college. These include tools for molecular imaging, cryo-electron microscopy, molecular biology, cell analysis, sorting, next-generation gene sequencing, and research on the human microbiome.

工學院 / College of Engineering



The College of Engineering currently houses valuable instruments such as a Precision Ion Polishing System, a MASS 5 NC 1540 IP 5-Axis CNC Router, a Focused Ion Beam and Electron Beam System, and a Small-angle X-ray Scattering, which are open for research and industry users. These facilities support the interdisciplinary research teams to meet their physical facility needs.

Except for the MASS 5 NC 1540 IP 5-Axis CNC Router located in Department of Engineering Science and Ocean Engineering building, other instruments are housed in the College of Engineering Building. Each instrument is overseen by a specific department and managed by a corresponding management team composed of members from various departments within the College. Depending on the functionality of the instrument, the composition of the team includes faculty from such as the Department of Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Engineering Science and Ocean Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Institute of Applied Mechanics, and Institute of Polymer Science and Engineering. The operational status of the instruments is regularly reported to the College's Laboratory of Valuable Instruments Management Committee following approval at the respective management team meetings.

相關研究成果發表於International Journal of Nanomedicine (IF 8.1, 14/278 in Pharmacology/Pharmacy) 2023, 18:4313-4327.

Under the substantial support (including support in research funds and key research equipment acquisition) by NTU Office of Research and Development, the College of Bioresources and Agriculture, and the Professional School of Veterinary Medicine, Prof. Pei-Shiue Tsai’s lab assembles a multidisciplinary research team including research teams from the department of chemistry, chemical engineering, biomedical engineering, medicine, and pharmacology and devote their effort on mitigating the deteriorating effects of chemotherapy/radiotherapy-induced infertility.

Through the effort, we used a non-traditional liposome-based approach and applied multiporous material to develop a novel high encapsulating efficiency, high specificity, high stability, and low cytotoxicity antioxidant nanoparticle to effectively rescue chemotherapy/radiotherapy-induced defects in spermatogenesis and testicular damages. To improve the convenience for clinical usage, we also aim to develop a lyophilized formulation of the antioxidant nanoparticle to improve shelf-storage time and convenience upon clinical usage. Furthermore, to ensure the safety and quality of the antioxidant nanoparticle, under the collaboration of the chemistry department and support from NTU Instrumental Center, we can further characterize the stability and compound distribution of the antioxidant nanoparticles before being tested at the clinics.

The research has been published in the International Journal of Nanomedicine (IF 8.1, 14/278 in Pharmacology/Pharmacy) 2023, 18:4313-4327.
