The Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (SIMMCAS) held the 2018 “Xin Guang Shan Yao” Graduate Stuent Annual Academic Conference on Oct. 17-19, 2018.

The Conference included two topics on “New mechanisms and new molecules research” as well as “New methods and new technologies research”, which were divided into Chemistry parallel session and Biology parallel session, respectively. Compared with the previous annual conference, the participants doubled this year. There were 96 graduate students recommended by their mentors to attend the conference, among which 68 students were selected for oral presentations (including an international student and 9 joint training students), and 22 for posters.

After two days communication and discussion, a total of 24 students won the “Qijiang Scholarship” and honorary titles in different levels accordingly.

The awards were presented by Prof. GENG Meiyu, secretary of the Party Committee of SIMM, Prof. LI Jia, deputy director of SIMM, and Prof. DING Jian, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

The conference invited Prof. SUN Qiang, director of the Non-human Primate Facility of the Institute of Neuroscience of CAS, and Prof. YU Xuekui, principal investigator of SIMM, to deliver lectures, entitled "Non-human Primate Model Animal Construction - From Gene Editing to Somatic Cell Cloning" and "Cryo-electron Microscopy: A Revolutionary Method for Structural Biology”, respectively.

In order to enhance the communications among member institutes from the Institutes of Drug Discovery and Development (IDDD) of CAS, 9 outstanding student representatives were invited from 8 IDDD member institutes, which were Kunming Institute of Botany, Kunming Institute of Zoology, Xinjiang Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry, Lanzhou Institute of Chemical Physics, Chengdu Institute of Biology, Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden, Northwest Institute of Plateau Biology, and Guangzhou Institute of Biomedicine and Health, to give reports.

The “Qijian Scholarship” was funded by the “Qijian” Graduate Education Fund,which was established by Prof. DING Jian.

Prof. DING attended the award ceremony. He hoped that the academic conference would encourage graduate students to explore the science fields and create an innovative academic atmosphere in SIMM. Furthermore, Prof. DING expected that SIMM graduate students should cherish the learning in SIMM, which has been passed down for generations; and keep “Communication” in mind equipping themselves with learning skills. Last but not least, he emphasized that students should focus not only on majorsubjects, but also on multi-disciplinary knowledge, which is essential for new drug research and development.

The Conference organized by the Graduate Students’ Union under the guidance of the Graduate Education Office. It is a characteristic academic activity of SIMM. The annual conference not only provided a platform for graduate students from both SIMM and IDDD member institutes of CAS to exchange academic ideas and share their scientific research achievements, but also created a good atmosphere for academic communications and promoted the construction of first-class disciplines in pharmacy.
