In the 21st century, mankind is facing serious challenges arising from population pressure, natural resource limitations, environmental problems and global security issues. As a leading discipline within the basic sciences, and the source of many high-tech industries, the life sciences has already become an important key in solving national socioeconomic sustainable development problems such as population and health, natural resources and the environment, and bio-security. The life sciences also provide an important impetus for improving the quality of life, promoting reconstruction of traditional industries, and developing new industries.
The Institute of Biophysics, as an important national research center for protein science and brain and cognitive sciences, contributes to scientific innovation and serves the economic development of society in line with national demands and international trends in the life sciences. By optimizing the division of scientific disciplines, reforming the research system, strengthening innovation support structures, and leading the way in the development of our fields, our aim is to make the Institute of Biophysics a modern, first rate international research institute.
The goal of accelerating the construction of an innovative country in the new era puts new and higher requirements on life science innovation, and also provides a broader stage for the majority of life science workers to implement the historical mission of serving the country with science and technology. As an important member of the national strategic scientific and technological force, the Institute of Biophysics will adhere to the original aspiration and mission of "innovating science and technology, serving the country, and benefiting the people", and insist on facing the world's scientific and technological frontiers, the main battlefield of national economy, national demands, and the lives and health of the people, and give full play to the comprehensive advantages of multi-disciplinary to achieve basic, forward-looking and strategic breakthroughs in the frontier fields of protein sciences, brain and cognitive sciences, infection and immunity, and nucleic acid biology. It will also strive to strengthen innovative research and development of key equipment in the field of life sciences, achieve breakthroughs in key technologies and experimental methods, build a transformational research system focusing on biopharmaceuticals and vitro diagnostics, and play the pilot role of a national research institution leading the nation in original output and the national innovation system.
We sincerely invite outstanding scientists worldwide to join our team or establish collaborations. We welcome excellent students who have a strong interest in the life sciences to pursue their career with us. Let us move forward to explore new territories and unlock the mysteries of the life sciences together!
