The Institute of Laboratory Animal Sciences (ILAS), Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences (CAMS) & Peking Union Medical College is the only national level institution specializing in fundamental and applied research in laboratory animal sciences. Based on new-type laboratory animal resources and technical research, as well as medical experiments and comparative medicine research of diseases in animals of various species and in human, ILAS investigates the nature of diseases, facilitates translation of results, and serves the cause of human health.
ILAS boasts China’s only Key Laboratory of Human Disease Comparative Medicine, the National Platform of Infectious Disease Experiments and Drugs Assessment, and China’s only Resource Center for Animal Model Resources of Human Diseases. It also ranks the country’s No. 1 in terms of resource quantities in human disease animal models, germ-free animals, disease-specific animal species, genetically engineered rats, animal models of infectious diseases and animals of genetic diversity, as well as its technology in producing disease animal models. It also leads the world in part of its resources possessed, which has greatly promoted the medical research and translation of findings of CAMS and the country beyond.
ILAS is home to four research centers, namely Research Center for Laboratory Animals Resources, Research Center for Comparative Medicine, Research Center for Experimental Pathogens and Research Center for Medical Translation. It consists of 22 research teams that mainly focus on breeding, conservation and development of laboratory animals and animal models, comparative medicine research in critical human chronic diseases and infectious diseases based on animal models, and research in medical translation. ILAS is the support unit of the Chinese Association for Laboratory Animal Sciences and the Technical Committee on Laboratory Animal Science of Standardization Administration of China. It is also the sponsor of two Chinese journals of Dual Core and Animal Model and Experimental Medicine, the only English journal in laboratory animal sciences in China. It houses the only international talent training base for laboratory animal technology in Asia.
In 2017, CAMS launched talents introduction policy led by the program of ‘High-end Scientific and Technological Talents Recruitment’. With the mission to establish the core base of national innovative system in medical science and technology as well as ‘Double Top University Plan’, ILAS welcomes outstanding talents from home and abroad to get on board by offering candidates with excellent working conditions, relaxed and open research environment, generous salary and benefits, and substantial research support.
