[Undergraduates Education]

Recently, the Innovation Class of State Key Lab of Biotherapy aims at cultivating "inter-disciplinary talent with a solid foundation in biology and chemistry, and a medical or pharmaceutical foundation, with innovative consciousness and a certain level of scientific research capabilities." The class has received strong support from the school and plans to select 80 outstanding students in the Class 2015 students of science, engineering, and medical majors of the university to carry out careful cultivation. The tutors in the innovation class are Academicians, Changjiang Scholars Program Endowed Professors, winners of the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars or Outstanding Youth Science Foundation of China, National "Thousand Talents Program" Scholars or Youth Scholars, or outstanding doctoral tutors.

Our lab attaches great importance to the education of undergraduates. Professor Huang has been awarded "Outstanding Instructor for Top Innovative Talents" by Sichuan University for five consecutive years. Our lab is based on "honesty" and the students are "United with love and make progress together". Former undergraduate students have published academic papers in international academic journals including Mol Cell Proteomics, Autophagy, Free Radical Bio Med, and Int J Cancer. The first authors of 14 papers are undergraduates. We warmly welcome undergraduates who are honest and trustworthy and interested in life sciences to study in our lab. There are no other requirements.
