About Our Lab

The history of our lab dates back to the Laboratory of Molecular & Biomolecular Electronics, SEU, launched in May 1985 by Prof. Wei Yu, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering. In 1992, the laboratory was named "Chien-Shiung Wu Laboratory" in honour of Dr. Chien-Shiung Wu, an SEU alumna and a world-famous physicist. Within the same year, our lab was authorized by the Ministry of Education to be the Open Laboratory of Molecular & Biomolecular Electronics. In 1999, it was renamed the State Key Laboratory of Molecular & Biomolecular Electronics, MOE (Ministry of Education). In 2005, under the approval of the Ministry of Science & Technology of China (MOST), preparations for the State Key Laboratory of Bioelectronics began and it was exanimated and approved in January 2009. Our laboratory is affiliated to the School of Biomedical Engineering, SEU, which ranked first in the most recent nationwide appraisal of the first-degree discipline of biomedical engineering.
     Bioelectronics is a cutting-edge interdisciplinary study between information science and life science. Currently, our lab conducts fundamental and applied research on the fields of the fabrication of materials and devices for bioinformation, the acquisition and sensing of bioinformation, and the application of bioinformation systems. It boasts 74 full-time members (72 research members), among whom there is an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, 3 professors of the Recruitment Program of Global Experts, 5 professors of the Cheung Kong Scholars Programs, and 7 recipients of the National Natural Science Funds for Distinguished Young Scholars. Composed of scientists with academic backgrounds in information electronics, biomedical engineering, chemistry, physics and computer science, our team won the financial support of the Fund for Creative Research Groups from the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) In 2001. So far, our lab has established platforms for the fabrication of bio/nano materials and study of biocompatibility, the track and detection of single molecule and single cell, the research and the application of micro-array chips and post-genomic technology, the assembly, fabrication and integrated characterization of micro/nano structures, the analysis of bioinformation analysis, and biocomputation. Meanwhile, we have been maintaining active cooperation with famous labs in the U.S., Japan, Germany, the U.K., France and Switzerland.
      In recent years, our lab has made great progress in the research on the bioeffect of medical nanomaterials, biochip and biosensor, and the studies of microarray and post-genomic  technology, some of which has been funded by the National Major Scientific Research Program and the National High-tech R&D Program of China (863 Program) and has won various awards at national and provincial level. We have thousands of papers in the key international journals published in total and six “the Hundred Excellent Doctoral Dissertation” in China received.
