Our research strategy is designed to enhance our national and international reputation through innovative, interdisciplinary, and sustainable research efforts that address global challenges. Here, we provide an overview of our strategic research themes, outcomes, environment and cultures, national and global collaborations, and research impact.

Strategic Research Themes and Groups

Advanced Materials, Chemical Biology, and Applications The Department of Chemistry is at the forefront of synthesizing, fabricating, and characterizing materials at multiple length scales. We focus on applications such as catalysts, energy storage, optoelectronics, and quantum information systems, with an emphasis on chemical-level manipulation of biological systems. This research has the potential to significantly impact fields like medicinal technology and drug delivery.

Biomedical Sciences, Microbiology, and Bioinformatics The Department of Biological Science tackles biological complexity at all levels, from molecules to microscopic organisms. We leverage computational technologies for data analysis and dissemination, aiming to make substantial contributions to human health, cancer research, and neuroscience.

Ecology and Environmental Science Our Department of Health and Environmental Sciences concentrates on biodiversity, community ecology, and urban ecology. We address the intersection of organisms, chemistry, and the environment, with a focus on environmental monitoring and the study of global environmental processes.

Research Environment and Cultures

We are committed to fostering a sustainable research culture by providing state-of-the-art infrastructure, expertise, and support. Our school has invested in advanced NMR equipment and regularly evaluates research needs to optimize resource allocation. We also prioritize grant success through workshops, internal reviews, and interdisciplinary seminars to enhance collaboration and funding success.

National and Global Research Collaboration

The School of Science actively promotes research collaboration with both national and international partners, including the University of Liverpool (UoL) and Xi’an Jiaotong University (XJTU). We aim to establish new research centers and institutes, engage in interdisciplinary research, and offer joint postgraduate education programs.

Research Impact

Our research themes are designed to have a significant impact on society and the environment. We focus on technology transfer and commercialization, with an emphasis on supporting the infrastructure necessary for effective technology transfer processes. Our goal is to contribute to the local and global community through research activities, workshops, and seminars that address pressing global environmental challenges.

The School of Science at XJTLU is dedicated to advancing science and innovation for the betterment of society. We invite you to explore our research themes, and collaborations, and to join us in our mission to make a positive impact through cutting-edge research.
