• School of Life Sciences & Biotechnology
  • The School of Life Sciences and Biotechnology (SLSB) of Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) was jointly founded by SJTU and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Shanghai Branch) in February 1997. After about 16 years of rapid development, SLSB has earned prestigious reputation and worldwide recognition in various areas of scientific research. While implementing educational reforms and optimizing the training system for students, we gathered a team of proficient teachers and researchers; among whom there emerged a number of prominent scholars with outstanding achievements in various fields of life sciences and biotechnology.
    There are 3 departments in SLSB: the Department of Biological Science and Technology, the Department of Bioengineering, and the Department of Bioinformatics and Biological Statistics. Besides the Life Sciences Experimental Teaching Center and the Public Instrument Service Platform, we are also known for various research institutes, such as the Bio-X Institute, the Mechanical Biological Institute, the Marine Microbiology Institute, the Cellular Immunology Institute and etc. The State Key Laboratory of Microbial Metabolism at the SLSB is a leading national institution in the area of microbial research, also being supplemented by other key labs, such as, the Education Ministry Key Laboratory for studies of genetics of developmental and neuropsychiatric disorders, and a National Center for Molecular Characterization of Genetically Modified Organisms.
    The branch discipline in Biology in SLSB includes Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Genetics, Microbiology, Developmental Biology, Cell Biology, Bioinformatics, Bio-engineering, and etc. Our school trains undergraduates in three specialties, including Biological Sciences, Biotechnology, and Bio-engineering, while providing students with cross-discipline training such as the Bioinformatics. The SLSB has two state personnel training bases for Life Sciences & Biotechnology and Biological Science, two Education Ministry special majors: Biotechnology and Bioengineering, and a Municipal Life Science Experimental Teaching Demonstration Center. Currently there are three national key disciplines and three Shanghai key disciplines.Disciplines in our school, such as biology and biochemistry, molecular biology and genetics, microbiology, animal and plant science, have entered top 1% in ESI international rankings.
    Combined with two state-level bases of the National Institute for Biological Science Personnel Training Base and the National Life Sciences And Biotechnical Personnel Training Base, we started the six-year combined bachelor-master program and the eight-year bachelor-master- PhD program for incoming freshmen. With the efforts made by the teachers, SLSB has three National Advanced Courses, one National Bilingual Model Course, six Advanced Courses of Shanghai Municipality, and six University-level Advanced Courses. The graduate courses were further reformed, setting up eight graduate core courses to upgrade the quality of curriculum.
