Jiangsu Collaborative Innovation Center of Biomedical Functional Materials

Introduction

The “Jiangsu Collaborative Innovation Center of Biomedical Functional Materials” (the Center), led by Nanjing Normal University, is a comprehensively cooperative innovation platform, in collaboration with many top ranking universities, research institutions, and global famous medical device companies, such as IMCB Italy, Sichuan University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Flon Biotech Co., Ltd and  Micro-tech Co., Ltd, etc. The center was listed in Jiangsu First Collaborative Innovation plan and funded in 2013.
The Center has developed relevant core technology research and played an important role in the development of Jiangsu new industries, with focusing on implantable biomedical materials and devices, new functional drugs and carriers, biomedical detection and simulation platform construction. In order to build the leading base of knowledge innovation, technology innovation, mechanism innovation and talents training, it has also taken the major task of promoting the development of new biomedical functional materials industry in Jiangsu Province.
Under the guidance of the council and the committee of experts, the Center implemented the system that the director is thoroughly responsible for his department. The Center has 1 national platform “National and Local Joint Engineering Research Center of Biomedical Functional Materials” and 4 provincial platforms as “Jiangsu Key Laboratory of Biomedical Materials”, “Jiangsu Testing Service Center of Biomedical Functional Materials”, “Jiangsu Engineering Research Center of Biomedical Functional Materials” and “Jiangsu Chemical Advantage Discipline”.
In recent years, the Center has obtained 1 key research project of Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and more than 40 projects funded by general NSFC or provincial and ministerial-level. It has published more than 260 SCI papers, 10 of which are on top academic journals (IF >8.0) as PNAS、Advanced Materials、JACS、ANGEWANDTE、Biomaterials、Chemical Science, etc. The chief scientist’s team in The Center has gained several provincial science and technology awards including 1 frist prize, 3 second prizes and 2 third prizes. The Center has also introduced 1 prominent expert of “National 1000 plan”, 5 distinguished professors of Jiangsu Province and 1 elite team of “Jiangsu Shuang Chuang Team” . It hosted and participated more than 10 seminars on significant requirements in China corporate and over 130 times sessions or forums with relative research institutions and corporations, including more than 50 presentations made by global prominent scientists, academician, Yangtse Rive Scholars and Distinguished Young Scholars. In additional, the Center has finished 10 contracts about PI recruitment plan and strategy cooperation agreement, established the rapid detection and simulation platform featured by the interdisciplinary of physical chemistry, computational chemistry and mathematics and added the separation and purification technology research platform focused on special industrial products. By the end of 2015, the Center has finalized over 10 corporate contracts and agreements, with project funding more than 20 millions.
