Brief Introduction

The Key Laboratory of Animal Models and Human Disease Mechanisms of Chinese Academy of Sciences & Yunnan Province (AMHD) is located in Kunming, Yunnan. Relies on the rich animal and plant resources of Yunnan province, AMHD currently focuses on establishing animal model of central nervous system diseases, infectious diseases, cancer and metabolic diseases through using primates and tree shrew. In addition, AMHD also carries out mechanistic studies, to discover diagnostic and therapeutic biomarkers and new therapeutic targets. AMHD devotes efforts to improve human health and biomedicine industry of China. AMHD has a young and creative research team, with the average age under 38 years. Currently, AMHD has 16 research teams (with a total staff of 92), 54 staff have Ph.D degree and 27 staff have MSc degree. Four scientists of AMHD were awarded the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars, 5 were awarded the Project of Thousand Youth Talents, 2 were awarded the Outstanding Youth Foundation of the National Natural Science Foundation, and 13 were awarded the One Hundred Person Project of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The main research interests of AMHD are as follows:

1. Primate and tree shrew model of major diseases

2. Molecular mechanisms of diseases

3. Development of New therapeutic and new technologies (based on animal models)
