About Us

Institute of Life Sciences is established as a direct department of Southeast University to commit to a high level of scientific research when Southeast University implies a leapfrog development strategy implementation. Institute of Life Sciences contains "Key Laboratory of Developmental genes and Human Diseases, Ministry of Education", Biology doctoral research centre, first level subject master's degree of Biology and second level subject doctoral degree of Genetics. The Genetics subject is especially appraised as Professor job-setting subjects and the "Tenth Five-Year ", "Eleventh Five-Year" key disciplines of Colleges and Universities in Jiangsu Province by Cheung Kong Scholars of Ministry of Education.

In recent years, it obtained construction funds up to more than 20 million RMB from 985 Program and 211 Program and then established the sharing stage of gene modification and phenotype analysis, which uses several model animals, such as mouse and drosophila. It has four stable research fields, which includes the study of development related gene function and the molecular mechanism and therapy of nerve development related diseases. Moreover, it contains two important platforms: antibody platform and bioinformatics platform, which fuels nanobody studies. Additionally, it also has many industry collaborators, by which it fast accelerates applications of its research findings into biomedical practice.
