About ShanghaiTech University
ShanghaiTech University is a research university in the making. Recently endorsed by China's Ministry of Education, it is jointly sponsored and organized by the Shanghai Municipal Government and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), with the former being responsible for operation.
Founded by ShanghaiTech University on October 12th, 2012, the Shanghai Institute for Advanced Immunochemical Studies (SIAIS) aims to become a first-class, leading antibody research institute in the world. It focuses on elucidating the most fundamental problems in life science research, particularly in immunochemistry. Its international governing board is comprised of world recognized scientists, including pioneering antibody researchers and Nobel Prize winners in Chemistry.
About iHuman Institute
The iHuman Institute is a new international effort established as a research institute located on the campus of ShanghaiTech University. What makes the iHuman Institute special is that it is focused exclusively on the basic and applied science of human cell signaling, integrating multiple tools for scientific discovery, and bringing together leading researchers throughout the world. Cell surface receptors and their related intracellular proteins are responsible for human cellular communications with each other and their environment, and are involved in a wide range of physiological activities. Such a central role in human biology makes cell signaling the target for intervention for tuning physiological responses and fighting numerous conditions and diseases. These proteins are central to understanding the evolution of mankind and human cognition at a molecular level.
