  • International Joint Research Center for Regenerative Medicine and Neurogenetics recognized as National-level International Cooperation Base for Science and Technology, adding to WMU’s list of national-level research institutions
  • On the recommendation of the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in the United States, the “International Joint Research Center for Regenerative Medicine and Neurogenetics” Program submitted by Wenzhou Medical University (WMU), after going through the evaluation process of online review, examination and defense, and expert comment, successfully made it on the list of National-level International Cooperation Bases for Science and Technology (in the Category of the National-level International Joint Research Center) recently announced by the Ministry of Science and Technology.

    Established by WMU in collaboration with internationally renowned universities and research institutes including the National Eye Institute of the United States, Australia’s Monash University and the University of Queensland, the Center integrating world’s advanced technologies in regenerative medicine and neurogenetics research focuses on the application of induced pluripotent stem cells, the regeneration of tissues and organs and their clinical popularization in addition to establishing the system for the basic research, screening, diagnosis and prevention and control for major diseases by basic research in neurobiology and medical genetics.

    Previously, WMU’s International Science and Technology Cooperation Base for Biomedicine has been approved as a national-level International Science and Technology Cooperation Base (in the Category of the Demonstration-type International Science and Technology Cooperation Base). The approval for the construction of the National Joint Research Center for Regenerative Medicine and Neurogenetics will help WMU further integrate scientific and intellectual resources from around the global, proactively promoting and advancing the breadth and depth of international scientific and technological cooperation. At the same time, WMU, by continuously strengthening the “Project-Talent-Base Combined Model” for international scientific and technological cooperation, will strive to improve the level of international cooperation and innovation to build the platform for international scientific and technological cooperation that integrates basic research, technology research and development, clinical treatment and technical consultation.

    Recognized by the Ministry of Science and Technology and its affiliated functional institutions, the National-level International Science and Technology Cooperation Bases are split in categories including International Innovation Parks, International Joint Research Centers, International Technology Transfer Centers, and Demonstration-type International Science and Technology Cooperation Bases. The International Joint Research Center is defined as an international scientific and technological cooperation base supported by a domestic institution with high-level scientific research and technological development capabilities for promoting long-term cooperation with first-rate research institutes abroad in areas at the forefront of international science and technology. A total of seven units in Zhejiang Province were newly recognized as national-level international cooperation bases for science and technology. Zhejiang ranks second in the country for two consecutive years by the number of newly added bases. Only two of the seven newly approved units were identified as the national-level international joint research centers.
