Life Science

The School of Life Science, established in 2001, aims to be a research-oriented school in life science. There are 78 members in School of Life Science; including 2 part-time academicians, 10 doctoral supervisors, 18 professors, 17 associate professor and 50 academic staff with doctor degree in the field of life science.

The research areas focuses on medicine, traditional biology, bioengineering and ecology, The main research fields are tumor biology and immunology, genetic engineering, biochemistry, new drugs development, animal ecology and biodiversity, physiology and ecology of plant, plant taxonomy and protection, rapid detection technology, and microbial fermentation and metabolic engineering, tobacco microbiology. At present, many important scientific projects with more than ¥20 million grants are undertaken in our school. Such as the National “973” Plan, Major Project of the Ministry of Science and Technology, National “948” project, National Special Fund for Science and Technology in the Public Interest, National Transgenic Major Project, and Natural Science Foundation of China.

The School offers three undergraduate programs: Biotechnology, Bioengineering and Bio-informatics, and prepare students for careers in science and health related fields, as well as for postgraduate studies in biological, ecological and agricultural science and doctor program of bio-informatics. The School has currently 925 full-time undergraduate students, 233 full-time postgraduate students and 27 part-time postgraduate students of engineering.

The School of Life Science has the tradition on valuing its teaching quality with its provincial teaching teams and advanced courses. The Lab Center of Biological Sciences and Technology, with an area of 3000 m2, is available for students to make experiments. With 130,000 insect specimens, its Insect Collections is the largest one in Henan province. The School now carries out several national and provincial life science research projects and makes great achievements in the professional fields.

Besides, the School aims to provide the finest education and research training to students, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. To accomplish this goal, we have modernized our teaching materials as well as teaching philosophy. Rather than bombarding students with endless textbooks, we teach students the logic and method of active learning.
