摘要：綜觀全球高等教育與知識經濟發展，明瞭21世紀人類挑戰與需求、深耕創新研究與持續培育跨領域人才是本校邁向世界頂尖大學、發揮關鍵影響力、引領國際學術潮流及維繫人類福祉與永續發展之不二法門。生機系陳林祈副教授團隊近年來基於上述考量與其契機背景，針對電致色變元件(electrochromic devices)、生物燃料電池(biofuel cells)與DNA適體感測技術(DNA aptamer sensing)等三項跨領域研究進行了在綠色能源與生醫感測應用方面之策略性佈局，並獲得實質的研究進程與成果。該團隊期望藉此深耕計畫研提，以三年研究時程(2011.08-2014.07)進行「奈米變色太陽能窗戶、葡萄糖生物燃料電池及量子點適體生物感測器研究之深度發展」，以逐步建立與鞏固其實驗室在此三大領域之國際聲譽，並藉此擴散與發揮其國際學術影響力、同時裨益人類福祉。此計畫實務上將平行進行下列三項奈米生物元件基礎研究、製程開發與整合應用：(1)奈米變色太陽能窗戶–邁向可調控輻射係數與進行充電之太陽能窗戶；(2)葡萄糖生物燃料電池–邁向普及於行動電子裝置之葡萄糖電池；(3)量子點適體生物感測器–邁向快速A型流感分型診斷LED生物感測器。在每個研究課題上該團隊各規劃三個子題，以「一年基礎扎根，二年技術發展，三年應用推廣」為策略逐步落實前述研究目標。該團隊期盼藉由此三年期深耕研究計畫蓄積永續發展的研發能量，並為本校與社會培植跨領域創新興人才，同時產出具影響力的優質期刊論文與創造具產業應用價值之發明專利。另一方面，該團隊亦將藉此機會籌組跨校、跨國研究計畫團隊將太陽能窗戶、生物燃料電池與量子點適體感測技術成果推廣至國際化學工程、奈米工程與農業/生物工程研究社群，以發揮學術影響力與提升國際能見度，為本校邁向頂尖大學貢獻一份力量。
Abstract: From the aspect of developments for high-level education and knowledge-based economics in the world, understanding the challenges and needs for the human beings in the 21st century, cultivating in innovative researches, and continuously incubating interdisciplinary talents are the stepping stones for our university to become a worldwide top university, to play key influences, to lead the international academics, to benefit the wealth and health of the human beings and to contribute in sustainable development. Considering the facts stated above and his niche backgrounds, Prof. Lin-Chi Chen and his team at Dept. of BIME have chosen three interdisciplinary topics–electrochromic devices, biofuel cells, and DNA aptamer sensing for strategic R&Ds in the field of green energy and biomedical sensing applications and have achieved solid research progress and outcomes in the recent years. In this CDP, the team plans to spend three years (08/2011-07/2014) to carry out the In-Depth Developments of Nanochromic Solar Window, Glucose Biofuel Cell, and Quantum Dot -Aptamer Biosensor Researches in order to establish and secure its reputations in the relevant fields, to diffuse and exert its influences into the international academics, and to benefits the human beings. In practice, the CDP will be executed by parallel R&Ds of the fundamentals, fabrications and applications of the following three nano/bio- devices: (1) Nanochromic solar window–toward an emissivity-controllable and chargeable solar window; (2) Glucose biofuel cell research–toward an ubiquitous glucose battery for portable electronics; (c) Quantum dot-aptamer biosensor research–toward a LED biosensor for quick influenza A subtyping. The team will accomplish the research aims by dividing each topic into three subtopics according to the following guideline: rooting in fundamentals in the first year; know-hows developments in the second year; applications and promotions in the third year. The team anticipates to accumulate its sustainable R&D capabilities and to incubate new talents for NTU and Taiwan by this three-year CDP in addition to resulting in several high-impact, high-quality papers and valuable patents from the industrial viewpoints. Besides, the team will take the opportunities to form inter-university and international research teams to promote its achievements in solar window, biofuel cell and quantum dot-aptamer sensing researches to the international communities of chemical engineering, nanotech/engineering, and agriculture/biological engineering and to enhance its influence and visibility so that it can contribute the efforts for promoting this university toward the list of top 50 universities.
