Jiangsu Key Laboratory for Aquatic Crustacean Diseases

Jiangsu Key Laboratory for Aquatic Crustacean Diseases

Director: Wang wen

Secretary: Gu wei

     The Laboratory was approved and set up in 2009 by the Jiangsu Ocean & Fisheries Bureau, mainly focus on the practical problems of aquaculture in Jiangsu Province, carry out major disease research of shrimps, crabs and other important economic aquatic crustaceans, focus on basic theory research and results oriented transformation and application. The laboratory currently has three research directions: 1, pathogenic gene and host immune function; 2, epidemiology and detection technology of major diseases; 3, breeding environment and disease prevention. Each direction of research are based on related research platform.
     At present, the laboratory undertakes 25 national and provincial projects, more than 100 SCI papers have been published, 8 national patents had been authorized, won the first prize of science and technology in Jiangsu Province; second-class award in higher school science from Ministry of education; second-class award of the agricultural science and technology from Ministry of agriculture; first prize of marine and fishery science and technology innovation in Jiangsu Province (the first completed units). Established substantive cooperation with four laboratory in the United States, Britain, and Japan, also establish a good relationship and cooperation with five domestic university, 3 research institutions and 6 basic Scientific research units (Aquatic technology promotion stations or Aquatic animal disease prevention and control center), and cooperate with relevant aquaculture enterprises, established alliance and graduate workstations.

    The Laboratory established the development goals —— " stand upright on two legs between heaven and earth", one means innovation and breakthrough in basic research, make a difference in international research in this field, the research results reached the international advanced level; the other means integrating theory with practice, combine with local actual production and demands, and carry out the effective scientific research and theoretical research results in laboratory for application, for the production line and social services as soon as possible.

Research interests

  1. pathogenic gene and host immune function;
  2. epidemiology and detection technology of major diseases;
  3. breeding environment and disease prevention.
