Research Cooperation

Soochow University is actively involved in international academic and research collaborations. A number of international research platforms have been set up in recent years, including SUN—WIN Joint Institute for Nanotechnology (with the University of Waterloo, Canada), The Soochow University—Western University Center for Synchrotron Radiation Research (with the University of Western Canada), CAM–SU GENOMIC RESOURCE CENTER (with Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, U.K.) and The Cyrus Tang Hematology Center.


1.   The Cyrus Tang Hematology Center

The Cyrus Tang Hematology Center was founded at Soochow University with financial support from the Cyrus Tang Foundation of the United States and the Jiangsu Provincial Government. Together with the Key Laboratory of Thrombosis and Hemostasis under the Ministry of Health and the Jiangsu Institute of Hematology, the Center serves as a state-of-the-art platform for research and technological innovation in hematology, a nationally recognized field of study at Soochow University. The Center opened officially in November 2009. Researchers at the Center conduct cutting-edge research in the areas of thrombosis, hemostasis, and hematological disorders.


2.   SUN—WIN Joint Institute for Nanotechnology

SUN-WIN Joint Institute for Nanotechnology was jointly established by Soochow University and University of Waterloo in 2011, which is a long-term collaboration program to stimulate collaborative research in leading edge nanotechnology, innovative undergraduate and graduate programs and exciting opportunities for commercialization of Nano-enabled projects. Through cooperation and partnership, the joint institute will be a global powerhouse in cutting-edge research and development in nanotechnology.


3.   Center for Synchrotron Radiation Research

Jointly founded in 2012 by Soochow University and Western University in Canada, Center for Synchrotron Radiation Research has been providing a multi-disciplinary platform for materials research, training for highly qualified personnel, and on-going support for large-scale synchrotron facilities. Since 2012, it has facilitated several exchange programs and collaborative research between the two universities on synchrotron radiation.


4.   CAM–SU Genomic Resource Center (CAM-SU GRC)

Founded in March 2014, CAM-SU GRC is a joint research centre between Soochow University and the Wellcome Trust Sanger institute in the U.K. It serves as a biotechnology platform for Asia-Pacific research communities with stem cell resources and technical support, with a vision to help understand gene functions in development, physiology and pathology, as well as their potential contributions in human diseases and the pharmaceutical industry.
