National and Local Joint Engineering Research Center of Biomedical Functional Materials

Director: Jian Shen / Xiaohua Huang
Secretary: Xuefeng Jiang


The “National and Local Joint Engineering Research Center of Biomedical Functional Materials” was approved officially by National Development and Reform Commission in 2013.It is a milestone since the Jiangsu Collaborative Innovation Center of Biomedical Functional Materials has developed. The center has developed relevant core technology research and played an important role in the development of Jiangsu new industries, with focusing on advanced implantable biomedical materials and devices, new functional drugs and carriers, biomedical detection and simulation platform construction. It will provide not only a high-level platform for pilot scale test and corresponding evaluation system, but also an advanced, well-equipped and comprehensive industrial scale test base. By cultivating the innovative enterprises with core competitive power, the center will contribute to the economic transition and development of strategic emerging industries of Jiangsu Province.
