Nanchang University Jiangxi Medical College

Nanchang University (NCU) and Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) have established the joint undergraduate program since 2013, leading to the award of two degrees, a bachelor of science in biomedical sciences (QMUL) and a bachelor of medicine in clinical medicine (NCU) after five years of study. The joint program is delivered by staff from both NCU Medical College and Queen Mary University of London. To further boost the research-lead teaching, the two universities have initiated the NCU-QMUL Joint Research Institute of Biomedical Sciences that comprise faculty from both universities.

NCU is located in Nanchang, which is the capital of Jiangxi Province and one of the most dynamic cities in China. The University is a comprehensive university that is listed in the “National Initiatives on the World First-class Disciplines of Double First-Class Universities” in China, the “211 Project” national key university. Nanchang University Jiangxi Medical College was founded in 1921. Over nearly 100 years, Nanchang University Jiangxi Medical College has been adhering to the mission of “noble ethics and superb medical skills”, and carrying forward the school spirit of “rigorous, diligent, unity, innovation”. The College has gained nationwide reputation in medical research, education and services and ranks at the top 15th among medical schools in China because of the number of medical graduates, who eventually become nationally and internationally well-known scientists and physicians. Currently, the clinical medicine is at the top 3.7‰ of ESI in the world. There are Institute of Life Sciences, Institute of Translational Medicine and Institute of Basic Biological Sciences equipped with state-of-art facilities in the medical campus which are accessible to all faculty. In addition, the college has also built an advanced animal center. Investigators are very motivated, interactive and cooperative in research.

QMUL is an internationally prestigious research-intensive institution. It is a member of the Russell Group in the United Kingdom. Nine Nobel laureates are associated with Queen Mary as staff or students. QMUL has strong genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics research groups both in the Barts and London School of Medicine and Dentistry and in the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences. As a result, QMUL has a number of outstanding and world-leading research centers, such as Genomics England, Centre for Genomic Health, Centre for Population Genomic Medicine.

NCU-QMUL Joint Research Institute of Biomedical Sciences is set up within the campus of Nanchang University Jiangxi Medical College. The Joint Research Institute aims to facilitate and build upon the collaboration between clinicians and non-clinical researchers. Thus, we now seek principal investigators to join the Joint Research Institute who will be able to take advantage of the excellent resources and scientific specialties available from both Universities. Principal investigators will also have opportunities to work at both sites on short term exchanges on collaborative projects.
