Organization profile

Organisation profile

Our department was established in 2002, and our graduate students are supervised by professors from the department of medicine and pharmacology as well. Our main goal is to educate professional researchers in the field of pharmacology, and to promote mechanism studies in our school.

The orientation of our goal is contingent upon the main research goals of our university such as cardiovascular and thrombus studies, natural products in Chinese medicine, the development and study of functional mechanisms in synthetic medicine. In accordance with clinical and pharmacological studies we also strive to strengthen the application of such studies.

Key Points of Middle and Long Term Research Plan:

(1) With the use of cloning and transfection genome-based biotechnology, we examine the different functions and effects of the target genetic polymorphism.

(2) Investigate vector transfection techniques, to better express or suppress specific genes in order to evaluate the effects of drug treatment on genes.

Fingerprint The fingerprint is based on mining the text of the scientific documents related to the associated persons. Based on that an index of weighted terms is created, which defines the key subjects of research unit
