1. History

The Institute of Pharmaceutical Analysis was founded in 2007, and is composed ofTeaching & Research Group of Pharmaceutical Analysis and Teaching & Research Group of Natural Pharmaceutical Chemistry.

2. Faculty and Research Conditions

Currently, there are seven teachers and researchers in the institute, including one professor, two associate professors, two lecturers and two experimental technicians, among whom there are three doctoral degree holders (accounting for 40% of the total number of teachers) and two master’s degree holders. Three teachers have been abroad for study and training. The laboratory for undergraduate and graduate students occupies an area of about 374 m2. There are multiple commonly used analysis instruments, such as HPLC, GC and so on. Dr. Feng’s group is built around the goal of developing the research for new traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). For this purpose, multiple research techniques and approaches, including chromatography, electrophysiology, the technology of extraction and separation of TCM, and the lab of experimental animal, have been developed, improved and used in current study.

3. Research Fields and Teaching Work

1) Research directions

Quality control and process of TCM preparation;

New TCM and second development of TCM preparation;

Isolation, structure elucidation, synthesis methods, and biological activities of TCM;

Discovery and finding of key pharmaceutical target in vivo of active components in TCM;

Pharmacokinetics and serum pharmacochemistry of TCM;

Fingerprinting and therapeutic basis of TCM;
