The iHuman Institute at ShanghaiTech University is focused on integrating molecular, cellular, and whole organ/body data to build a dynamic atomic resolution model of the human body. The institute has established a strong foundation in (1) Molecular: X-ray, NMR, EM (2) Cellular: super resolution, confocal, coherent diffraction and (3) Human scale: MRI and PET technology development and data accumulation. Biology, chemistry and computation are the glue that integrate the spatio-temporal data together.
Recruitment: Bio-imaging, Biology, Chemistry, Computational Biology, AI/ML
Faculty recruitment is focused on scientific leaders interested in working together towards this very ambitious scientific goal while also promoting their scientific careers. The iHuman Institute uniquely brings together research groups in the fields of Chemistry, Computational Biology, Imaging, Structural Biology, Systems Biology, Cell Biology, MRI, AI/ML and Translational Drug Discovery. We have a strong culture of collaboration between disciplines and groups to decipher the mysteries of human health and disease through imaging and visualization tools.
The iHuman Institute is physically located at ShanghaiTech University surrounded by incredible resources for researchers including the National Protein Science Center, Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility (SSRF), Shanghai Free Electron Laser, Chinese National Compound Library, Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica, Fudan University, Shanghai Advanced Research Institute, Zhangjiang Science City and more than 300 established biotech/pharma/computer science/telecommunications companies.
Address: Ren Building, 393 Middle Huaxia Road, Pudong, Shanghai, China
