In April 2022, National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University (NYCU) launched the Ukraine Program to assist displaced Ukrainian students in continuing their studies at NYCU. A total of 36 new students from Ukraine are expected to arrive in the fall semester of 2022 to continue their degrees in engineering, information engineering, and industrial engineering and management as well as the international program in inter-Asian cultural studies at NYCU.
A student rocket team from National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University, Formosan Fox, will depart for the United States on June 17 to participate in Spaceport America Cup 2022, known as the world’s largest intercollegiate rocket engineering conference and competition, which will be held in New Mexico, USA, from June 21 to June 25. Formosan Fox will represent National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University as the first team from Taiwan to compete! This year, 151 teams will participate in the competition, and the participating groups come from many continents, including the Americas, Europe, Asia, etc.
As the epidemic intensifies, the confirmed cases in Taiwan are rising continually. In addition to vaccination, preventing the infection of COVID-19 in daily life is also a major point. A research team from the National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University cooperated by Tung-Yi Lin, who has served as an Associate Professor of the Institute of Traditional Medicine, and Assistant Professor Ming-Han Tsai from the Institute of Microbiology and Immunology showed that the Ganoderma Microsporum immunomodulatory protein “GMI” could induce the degradation of ACE2 in the host cells and alleviate the infection of SARS-CoV-2 pseudovirus. This finding has been published in “Phytomedicine”, a reputable international journal in the field of Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
