    For more than a decade, after countless tests and summaries, they found 18 FGF family members, which have been proven to be extensively effective intissue regeneration, wound-healing, and the regulation of blood glucose and lipids. Based on their findings, they have further explored and developed new drugs of significant clinical values. The world leading FGFs drugs developed by the team for healing severe wounds and ulcers have now been applied for more than 80 million person-times in more than 2000 hospitals around China.
