Lab director: Prof. Guoxiang Wang

Director of Academic Committee: Academician Prof. Chao Wang

Secretary: Assoc. Prof. Ruiming Han



Institute of Water Environmental Ecoremediation managed by Nanjing Normal University was approved by Nanjing Normal University in 2008. It was incorporated into the School of Environment in Dec, 2015 along with the establishment of school. The institute focused on the research of ecological processes and practice of ecological remediation in aquatic ecosystems, namely the mechanisms of aquatic ecosystem degradation especially eutrophication and algae bloom in shallow lakes, black-odorous urban rivers, ecological restoration technique and practice for polluted urban rivers, restoration of macrophyte in algae-dominated eutrophicated shallow lakes. The institute attends to build up itself a joint innovation platform for ecological restoration of degraded aquatic ecosystems in the world.


The institute currently has 27 members including 14 full and associated professors, 8 lecturers and 5 technicians and instructional staffs. Out of the academic backbone, there are 2 academic leaders of "333 project" of Jiangsu Province, 2 academic leaders of "Blue Project" of Jiangsu Province.
