Director：Prof. Xiao-Yu Ding
Secretary：Dr. Qingyun Xu
Jiangsu Provincial Engineering Research Center for Technical Industrialization of Dendrobiums is a provincial research and development institution approved by Jiangsu development and reform commission. The engineering center, which led by professor Ding Xiao-Yu from college of life science, Nanjing Normal University, is established based on the Dendrobiums research team of Nanjing Normal University and four cooperated companies including Jiangsu Yicaotang Dendrobium Technology Co. Ltd., Zhangjiagang Haosheng Industrial Investment Co. Ltd., Changzhou Tianrun Herb Life Science & Technology Co. Ltd, and Changzhou Shihua Flower Technology Co. Ltd. The engineering center focuses on developing the research and identification system of Dendrobiums germplasm for screening and cultivation of excellent Dendrobiums germplasm, establishing low-carbon tissue cultural system and organic cultivation system of Dendrobium species and developing various health food & series products of Dendrobiums. The aim of the engineering center is to develop a set of industrialization technology of Dendrobiums with independent intellectual property rights, to bring up a batch of experienced academic leaders and orchid industry technical experts, to achieve significant economic performance, ecological and social benefits.
