The cancer chemoprevention branch school of 2016 International Summer School in Zhengzhou University (ZZU in short) for Postgraduate is hosted by Graduate School of ZZU and organized by the Academy of Basic Medicine (ABM in short), which is considered as one of the programs promoting the internationalization of ZZU’s graduate education.
ABM comprises 12 departments, 2 experimental teaching centers, 13 research institutes (or centers) and 1 post-doctoral exchange center. ABM has the first-level discipline to confer Doctoral degrees（the first batch authorized to confer doctoral degrees）, as well as 1 Master degree.
This academy offers 1 national key discipline( which has been raising ), 4 provincial key disciplines, 2 National High-level Courses，1 provincial excellent course, and 8 ZZU good courses. There are 139 full-time teachers, including 42 professors and 59 assistant professors. There are 14 doctoral supervisors and 102 postgraduate ones.
In recent years, ABM takes the basis of pathology and morbid physiology which are respectively the national key discipline and the provincial basic medicine first key discipline, and the aim of promoting the scientific innovation. There assembles lots of experts and professors enjoying the fame in China to form the academic competitive and featured disciplines and majors. Especially the basic research and control on tumor molecular discipline gets the name of featured discipline of Henan Province this year. This discipline takes the study on cancer chemoprevention as its main orientation to constitute the Henan International Cooperation Laboratory for Cancer Chemoprevention, Henan Coordinate Innovation Center for Cancer Chemoprevention, and the Key Laboratory of Henan High Education Institution approved by Ministry of Education. ABM has acquired more than 50 national programs including Program 973, Project 863, projects approved by Ministry of Science and Technology, and National Natural Science Foundations; over 100 Provincial Science Foundations, over 30 department and bureau- level Science Foundations and 5 discovery patents. More than 200 graduate students, over 60 doctors and 5 post graduates have graduated from this school. Every year ABM enrolls about 70 doctoral and graduate students. In the recent 3 years, ABM has made great achievements in graduate education, i.e.12 graduates get the national scholarship, 5 graduate papers are rewarded as provincial excellent ones, 9 graduates has been rewarded as the provincial excellent students and 18 as ZZU excellent.
To enhance the international cooperation of the research and teaching in basic medicine, ABM has combined the basic medicine study with cancer chemoprevention to widen the graduates’ view, to enlighten graduates’ innovative scientific thoughts, to strengthen the international academic exchange ability of graduates majoring in basic medicine, to enhance the special English level of graduates and their ability to apply English in academic exchange, and to promote the quality of raising graduates. So the Graduate School of ZZU and ABM host the 2016 international summer school for graduate in cancer chemoprevention.
Incidence of tumor becomes higher and higher which has been a threat to the Chinese lives. Cancer chemoprevention is considered as the strategy to stop, lessen or transfer the incidence and development or re-occurrence of cancer by natural or synthesized chemical materials. The focus of tumor prevention and therapy is to find out the molecular target in tumor incidence, and the small molecule suppressor for the target. So it is important and effective of raising the special talents in cancer chemoprevention to study developing molecular in stages, and find out transduction path of the key signal and the key target molecular of cancer, as well as the new tumor molecular target.
The experts in tumor chemoprevention are invited as follows: Professor Dong Ziming, Professor Liu Kangdong, Doctor Qiao Yan and Doctor Jiang Yanan from the Basic Medicine School of Zhengzhou University, Doctor MeeHyun Lee, Doctor Honggyum Kim， Doctor DongJoon Kim from Korea，Doctor Otto Yeung from Australia.
