Based on the strategic cooperative partnership between Beijing University of Chemical Technology(BUCT) and China-Japan Friendship Hospital(CJFH), the BUCT—CJFH Biomedical Transformation Engineering Research Center (hereinafter referred to as “Transformation Engineering Research Center”) launched the declaration work of 2018 joint fund projectin April 2018. As of the end of May, the Transformation Engineering Research Center has received more than 70 returns. Among them, 10 declarationswereabout precision medicine and translational medicine, 9 were about biological samples and health-environmental database, 25 were about biomedical materials and 27 were about early diagnosis of major diseases.
It is reported that more than 30 disciplines of CJFH participated in the joint fund declaration. The joint declaration number of Orthopedics Department, Ophthalmology Department, Radiation Oncology Department, Laboratory Department, Clinical Medicine Institute, Stomatology Center and Medical Engineering Office exceededmore than 50% of the total.In addition,the number of items submitted by Department of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, Neurology Department, Gastroenterology Department, Dermatology and Venereal Diseases Department, Obstetrics and Gynecology Department, Pediatrics Department and other disciplines also surpassed 2 respectively. Eight schools and centers of Beijing University of Chemical Technology applied for the joint fund projects, among which the School of Materials Science and Engineering,School of Life Science and Technologyand School of Information Science and Technology took the lead with 20 declarations respectively. TheSchool of Chemical Engineering, School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, School of Science, School of Economics and Management, and Beijing Advanced Innovation Center for Soft Matter Science and Engineering also submitted declarations.
The Transformation Engineering Research Center is a joint scientific research institute established for the purpose of complementing each other’s advantages andrealizing interdisciplinary research, integration of medicineand engineering and joint innovation. The establishing principle of the joint fund initiated in 2018 is centering on a broad direction, focusing on the basis of cooperationand orienting toward integrated applications. A total of four directions have been set up including precision medicine and translational medicine, biological samples and health-environmental databases, biomedical materials and early diagnosis of major diseases. The establishment of the joint fund is conducive to promotingthe basic research and applied basic research as well as academic exchange in biomedical engineering field. Next, theTransformation Engineering Research Center will finish the joint project evaluation and project approval work according to the procedure and carry out a whole-process management of the project.
