And we have made brilliant achievements in children’s environment health science research.
By taking measurements such as introducing domestic and overseas experts to join in our research team, sending our researchers for further study in advanced lab, our lab has built up a strong research team in crossed multi-discipline with high-efficiency and rational professional structure. Till now, our lab has 20 researchers, including nine professors, seven associate professors, six tutors of Ph.D. and five tutors of Master.
After five years’ construction and development, we have made outstanding achievements with 35 on-going scientific research projects and total funds of about 18.5 million RMB and cultivating 27 postgraduates. More than 120 scientific articles were published in domestic and international cooperation academic journals, of which 32 papers have been indexed by SCI. And 12 academic books have been published.
