Post time:2020-05-15 Viewed:



The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is previously recognized as the Department of Biochemistry, which was founded in 1910 by Dr. Cornier, and has gone by a number of names reflecting the evolution of medicine and life sciences. In the 4thdecade of the department, the first institute of biochemistry was established by Professor Tianhe LAN in China. He also devoted his whole life to the development of the department. We currently have 16 faculty members, including 6 professors, 3 associate professors, 6 lecturers and 1 senior technician.


Most faculty members in our department have more than 1 year’s overseas training experience in developed countries. All teachers have the ability of bilingual teaching and most of them can make full English teaching. We offer several courses, such asBiochemistry,Molecular Biology, for undergraduates, graduate students, and international students.

Our department have been authorizing master’s and doctoral degree since 1981. About 30 graduate students, 10 Doctoral candidates and 20 Master candidates, are currently training in our laboratory, supervised by 5 doctoral supervisors and 8 master’s supervisors.


The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology explores the molecular mechanisms that underlie cellular function and contribute to human disease. Our laboratories emphasize interdisciplinary research that spans the biomedical sciences, including signal transduction, cell cycle regulation, homeostasis, metabolism, cell differentiation, tumor and ageing. The research directions in our department include molecular mechanism of cardiovascular disease, DNA damage and repairing in aging and cancer, apoptosis and proliferation of tumor cells, biological sensor technology, protein biological engineering, tumor genetic diagnosis and treatment. In recent 5 years, our department has received a number of research grants supported by National Natural Science Foundation, the Ministry of Education Program for New Century Excellent Talents Fund, Doctoral Scientific Fund Project of the Ministry of Education, Scientific Research Starting Foundation for Returned Overseas Scholars, CMB Fund, National Research Project, “973” Project, Key and General Scientific Research Fund of Sichuan Province, the International Cooperation Fund, School Youth Science Foundation, Academy Youth Science Foundation, etc.
