Academy of Medical Sciences (AMS in short) of Zhengzhou University (ZZU in short) is newly constituted according to new system in ZZU to build the first-level discipline, enhance the ability and level of science and technology innovation in the medical science, and the internationalization of the scientific research of the medical science. AMS employed Professor Nick Lemoine as the dean who is the specialist in translational medicine and academy administration. Nick is the fellow of British Academy, as well as the director of clinic center in Britain National Health Institute. Cell and gene therapy center as one of the first two centers has invited named professor Wang Yaohe in tumor cellar and gene therapy from Queen Mary University of London as the head.
The center develops on the Chinese-English tumor study center co-built by ZZU and Queen Mary University.
In recent 10 years, the center has emphasized on application study of therapy of cell and gene, and made the translational study of tumor control as the key point. They have acquired the key project，general project and young project of National Natural Science, international key special project funded by Ministry of Science and Technology, Chinese-English Innovation Rewards and Chinese-Europe Pathology Reward, 3 discovery patents, as well as issued paper in the international top magazines.
In 2014 this center has been approved to be the first International Coordination Research Center for Cell and Gene Therapy by Ministry of Science and Technology in China.
Recently, the center has built advanced technology platforms: (1) the Technology Platform for Construction and Purification of Virus Carriers for Gene Therapy; (2) Evaluation Technology Platform for Newly Transgene Animal Model for Gene Therapy and Safety and Effectiveness of New Medicine; (3) Research and Development Platform for Tumor Immunity Therapy with the Key of Prevention and Therapy Vaccine for Tumor Individualization; (4) Technology Platform for Cell Gene Edition in Situ and Reconditioning.
Recently, the center has made the important development in the study of new vaccine of oncolytic virus and tumor cell and new disease animal model. The special laboratory project for preparation of cell and gene therapy inhibitor and virus carriers meeting international GMP standards has been carried on in ZZU, which will accelerate translational study.
According to the “International Talent Zone” strategy of AMS and development plan of the center，researchers and post doctor are needed.
