About Bio-X Institutes of Shanghai Jiao Tong University

关于上海交通大学Bio-X研究院

The Bio-X Institutes of Shanghai Jiao Tong University was formed in 2005 by merging the Neuropsychiatric and Human Genetics Group (NHGG), which was established in 1996, and the Bio-X Life Science Research Institutes, which was established in April 2000.

The founding of the Bio-X Institutes represents a landmark in interdisciplinary research among the life sciences. The mission of the Institutes is to provide not only an interdisciplinary institute but also to serve as a forum for discussion among scientists and students from a variety of disciplines and fields.

The current director of the Institutes is Prof. Lin He, a fellow of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the honorary director is Prof. Steve Zhu, physics Nobel Laureate.

The research at the Bio-X Institutes focuses on interdisciplinary topics between nutrition, health& disease, development and reproduction, biosaftey and DNA computing. More in detail, we currently have research programs in genome mapping and cloning, functional genomics, pharmacogenomics, proteomics, psychiatric metabolism, DNA computing, bioinformatics and nation-wide protection of genetic resources.

上海交通大学Bio-X研究院(以下简称“研究院”)是于2005年由NHGG(Neuropsychiatric and Human Genetics Group, 神经精神与人类遗传学研究室)和2000年成立的Bio-X生命科学研究中心经过重组凝练而成。自从谢绳武校长亲自宣布了“研究院”的成立起,标志了我校正式启动了生命学科与其他多学科间进行交叉合作研究基地的建设,开始起到成为从事与生命科学相关的多学科交叉研究科学家的工作平台的作用,并为不同学科和领域的研究人员和学生提供一个学术思想和信息交流的温馨的“家”。

研究院现届院长为贺林教授(中国科学院院士),名誉院长为诺贝尔奖获得者朱棣文教授。

经过多年的摸索和实践,最终研究院把自己的研究方向定位在《疾病与健康》、《营养与健康》、《发育与生殖》、《生物安全(筹)》、《DNA计算与技术》的范畴,具体可分解为“基因定位与克隆”、“功能基因组学”、“药物基因组学”、“精神疾病代谢组学”、“蛋白质组学”、“动物模型”、“DNA计算与技术”、“生物信息学”、“全国遗传资源保护网”等课题。
