Nankai Univ. Teda
  TEDA College  

TEDA College is a comprehensive college jointly established by Nankai University and Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area (TEDA) in 2000 and serves as one of the three campuses of Nankai University. The College is located in TEDA, Binhai New Area of Tianjin. The Dean of TEDA College is Prof. Lei Wang, Assistant President of Nankai University. The academic activities are mainly pursued in 2 InstitutesTEDA Institute of Biological Sciences and Biotechnology and TEDA Applied Physics Institute.

TEDA Institute of Biological Sciences and Biotechnology

TEDA Institute of Biological Sciences and Biotechnology (formerly known as TEDA School of Biological Sciences and Biotechnology) was established in 2003. The Institute is under the leadership of Prof. Lei Wang, Assistant President of Nankai University, who is a Cheung Kong Scholar and Recipient of Chinese National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars.

The Institute has established “Key Laboratory of Molecular Microbiology and Technology of Ministry of Education”, “Key Laboratory of Microbial Functional Genomics of Tianjin Government”, “Engineering and Research Center for Microbial Functional Genomics and Detection Technology of Ministry of Education” and “Research Center for Functional Genomics and Biochip of Tianjin Government”. The main research areas include microbial functional genomics and evolution, molecular virology and immunity, applied microbiology and biotechnology (environmental microorganism, pathogenic fungus, petroleum microorganism and biocontrol microorganism), microbial key component synthesis. Research in several areas have reach internationally advanced level, including the evolutionary law and pathogenic mechanism of significant pathogens, molecular basis and evolution law of environmental microorganism and industrial microorganism, genetic mechanism of biodiversity.

The Institute has built genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics platforms with international first-class level. The Institute houses a suite of advanced equipment, such as the new third generation of  PacBio sequencing system, the second generation Illumina/ Solexagenome analyzer, genome optical mapping system and ABI Ion Torrent sequencing system, MALDI-TOF-TOF (MS, ABI 4700 proteomics analyzer), trace Diane two-dimensional liquid chromatography system, dawn EP480, EP850 server, SUN V880, V890 server and so on.

TEDA Applied Physics Institute

TEDA Applied Physics Institute (formerly known as TEDA Applied Physics School) was established in 2003. The deanship is taken by Prof. Romano Rupp from Vienna University.

At present there are 26 staff members, among them are 10 full professors, 7 associated professors, 2 senior engineers and 5 lecturers. Two members are Cheung Kong Scholar (Jingjun Xu and Zhigang Chen), three were awarded by the National Natural Science Fund as Outstanding Young Scholars (Jingjun Xu, Jianguo Tian, and Zhigang Chen), three were granted the distinguished support of the Trans-Century Training Programme Foundation for Talents by the Ministry of Education (Jingjun Xu, Jianguo Tian, and Yongfa Kong), and four received the honorable support of the Program for New Century Excellent Talents in University.

The Institute has founded the Key Laboratory for Low-Intensity Nonlinear Photonics of Ministry of Education and Key Laboratory for Photonics Materials and Information Science Technology of Tianjin Government. The main research fields are physics of nonlinear materials, low-intensity nonlinear optics, microscopic quantum coherent optics, advanced fabrication techniques for photonic materials, spectroscopy, sensor techniques, quantum materials and devices, and nano-photonics. The Institute has laboratories of 7000 square meters and research equipment of more than 40 million RMB.

TEDA College is committed to pushing the industry involvement in education of Nankai University, explores new model for education and promotes innovation in education system. TEDA College actively expands the awareness of the excellence of Nankai University, and makes contribution to building Nankai University into a top-ranking university.

TEDA College plays its role in providing intelligence support and facilitating regional economic development of Binhai New Area, the third growth pole of China´s economy and one of the bestdevelopment areas of China. TEDA College is increasingly cooperating with firms and other factors in society, and engages itself in external collaboration to disseminate knowledge, promote the social impact of scientific and cultural activities, and stimulate commercialization of research. As an entity in economic development area, the College also encourages improvement of human environment in Binhai New Area. In turn, Binhai New Area provides the College with funding support and excellent community environment.
