At A Glance
 
The School of Life Sciences (SLS) was founded in July 2005. It developed from the Department of Biology of Guangzhou Normal University and School of Education (Teachers College) Guangzhou University which were merged into the School of Biological and Chemical Engineering in 2000 and later became two independent schools. SLS have 3 undergraduate majors, including Biological Science, Biotechnology and Bioengineering; SLS also has Biology First-Level Disciplines Master Program, Curriculum and Teaching Theory (Biological Education) Second-Level Disciplines Master Program and Disciplines Teaching (Biology) Education Master Program. There are over 830 on-campus students (including postgraduates).
Faculty and Staff:  There are 79 faculties and staffs including 48 Ph.D. holders. Among the 55 full-time faculties, 17 of them are professors, 23, associate professors, 6 , postdoctoral co-supervisors, 6 ,  Ph.D. supervisors and 36 ,  master supervisors; 28 of them have the experience of studying abroad. Among the 13 laboratory technicians, 3 of them have obtained the Senior Academic Title . SLS  boasts of 1 winner  of  the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars, 1 distinguished Research Fellow of Chinese Academy of Sciences and 2 members of the CAS Pioneer Hundred Talents Program; 10 teachers are the members of “Guangdong  Qian-Bai-Shi Talent Program ”, 1 teacher is selected as one of the trainees of  Guangdong Provincial Outstanding Young College  Teacher Training Program, 3 teachers were elected as the  members of national -level academic societies , 2 teachers  are vice-director and more than 10 are members of provincial academic  societies. Over 10 teachers are members in editorial boards of J Genet Genomics . 2 teachers are awarded as Prestigious  Teacher of Guangzhou University and 8 are awarded with municipal prizes for excellence in teaching.
Teaching Facilities:  We have  a provincial demonstration center - the Experimental Teaching Center of Biological Science and Biotechnology , covering  an area of more than 6 , 000 m 2 , with over 100  labs ; with  a total asset of the over 1,000 facilities exceed ing  50 million Yuan. There are over  100 of those facilities valued at 100,000 Yuan  for each . We  also have a bioengineering pilot plant and a biological park. We have 1 provincial level practice base for students– Daya Bay Coastal Zoology Fieldwork Base Cluster; 2 municipal postgraduate practice teaching bases: Provincial Institute of Insects and Municipal Academy of Agricultural Sciences; 7 university-level fieldwork bases; Guangzhou Zoo, South China Botanical Garden, Haida Group, Zhuhai Inspection and Quarantine Bureau, Municipal Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Overseas Chinese High School and Qingyuan Rongda Biological Engineering Co., Ltd.; and there are more than 10 school-level fieldwork bases, which would satisfy the needs of the school’s teaching and researches of different levels.
Disciplin es  and Program s: SLS  has a municipal key laboratory of functional study on plant stress-resistant genes, key laboratories of Guangzhou University including lab of gene function and microarray and lab of research on South China biodiversity. The Biology First-Level Disciplines Master Program contains 5 second-level disciplines including Botany, Zoology, Genetics, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Physiology etc. Our school also has 3 key courses including Botany, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Zoology; the major of Biological Engineering is one of majors involved in the provincial pilot comprehensive reforms on majors; zoology is the municipal quality course, and Biological Sciences and Biological Engineering are the characteristic majors of Guangzhou University.
Scientific Research:  SLS cooperated with Department of Education of Guangdong Province to establish two  key research platforms for international cooperation (Guangzhou University Plant Stress-Resistant International Cooperation Research Center and Guangzhou University – Keele University (UK) Gene Interference and Application Associated Research Center), and other research institutions including Guangzhou University M olecular Genetics And Evolutional Innovation Research Center, Precision Gene Editing Engineering Center, Guangzhou University Gene Function and Biochip Research Center, Bioengineering Institute and South China Institute of Biodiversity; it also establishes several research teams in the fields of Soybean Molecular Design Breeding, Key Gene Function Research and Application, Plant Stress Biology and Molecular Breeding, Animal Taxonomy and Diversity Conservation, Plant Ecology and Diversity Conservation, Molecular Physiology and Endocrinology, Development and Utilization of Important Biological Resources in South China.  In recent 5 years, our school has undertaken 100 research projects and the research fund have reached 38 million RMB.  Among  all the research projects there are nearly 20 national projects and more than 20 provincial projects, the total funding of the projects exceed 38 million Yuan. More than 200 articles have been published and about 50 of them were indexed by SCI. 8 monographs and textbooks were published.  SLS has obtained 6 provincial Science and Technology Progress Award, as 6 T eaching achievement P rize and 8 Authorized I nvention P atent s.
