A marine medical research institute in Zhanjiang, Guangdong province was recently approved to establish a doctoral workstation by the Guangdong Provincial Department of Human Resources and Social Security.
The research institute was jointly set up by Zhanjiang-based Guangdong Medical University (GDMU) and Zhanjiang High-tech Industrial Development Zone.
Its main focus is to strengthen research and development (R&D) in the fields of marine engineering medicine, marine biomedicine, and marine functional food, contributing to the development of a large health industry in the South China Sea.
The institute has also built a 3,300-square-meter public service platform of the State Oceanic Administration. It can provide key technical services and incubators for the R&D of the regional biomedicine industry.
In the past five years, the institute has undertaken a total 86 scientific research projects, of which 16 projects are at the State level.
To date, GDMU has two doctoral workstations and two post-doctoral scientific research workstations.
