Provincial Key Subjects of AHMU

Oriented toward building a teaching-and-research type institution at the advanced level, the university insists on the policy of “Originality, Concentration, Sustainability, and Future” in the research work. In order to stimulate the faculty’s enthusiasm for research, the university continues to implement the projects of “Four Trainings” and Sharing of Large-scale Instruments and Facilities. In 2009, the university obtained 246 approved items of scientific research and 59 approved items of the National Foundation for Natural Sciences in 2010, with grants respectively adding up to ¥ 33,8481 million and ¥15,85 million. Academic theses published domestically by the faculty in 2009 totaled 1833, ranked 44th of all the universities and colleges nationwide, and 12th of all the medical universities and colleges across the country. Published in “Natural Genetics”, the thesis entitled “Psoriasis Genomewide Association Study Identifies Susceptibility Variants within LCE Gene Cluster at 1921” was cited by SCI up to 27 times, ranking 23rd among the “100 Most Internationally Influential Academic Theses of China.” The university-based journal “Chinese Pharmacological Bulletin” was elected in 2009 among the “100 Prominent Learned Journals of China.” Since 2009, three research works done by the faculty on the susceptible genes of psoriasis, vitiligo, systemic lupus erythematosus, and one cooperated research work on cancer of esophagus have been published in “Natural Genetics” successively. Studies by the faculty on leprosy were published by the internationally renowned journal “New England Journal of Medicine.” Currently, the university has up to 22 key laboratories or centers for science and engineering at provincial level or above, including the Training Base for National key Laboratories co-built by Anhui Province and the Ministry of Science and Technology of PRC.

Bases for experimental animals:

1. AHMU Center for Experimental Animals

AHMU Center is the base for providing experimental animals for research and teaching of the university. It is one of the bases serving this province as well.

The center occupies about 4000 square meters mainly for raising and breeding experimental rats, mice, guinea pigs, rabbits and dogs. It is one of the first centers to obtain the qualifications for the environment for experimental animals and production of experimental animals. People concerned are making all efforts to apply for the permit to produce and use cleaner animals. Meanwhile they are speeding up the construction of the complex building with total floorage of 2690 square meters for experimental animals so as to help the life science research in the university and even the whole province.

2. Anhui Provincial Center for Medical Experimental Animals

Anhui Provincial Center for Medical Experimental Animals will be built on the university main campus. The plan for prospective center has been closely inspected and examined by the experts and has met the national standards of SPF. The new center will have first-rate facilities as large as 2040 square meters for producing cleaner animals and their related experiments. The center is designed as a platform to contribute to the development of genetic research in this province. It will come into use soon. We would like to work with anyone interested in the center and willing to come to give a helping hand either in forms of the direct investment or cooperation. They can be involved in the management of the center, developing broad markets for experimental animals either in or outside this province and making great contributions to the development of experimental animals.
