Life science has been central to the development of the 21st century natural sciences, and its development is related to people’s health and well-being. Today, life and health industry has become a new driving force to promote the development of the world economy. Therefore, the central and local governments set the strategic priorities to foster advancing emerging life science related industries. Life science is one of the key disciplines of the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech). Founded in 2012, the Department of Biology is among the first established academic departments in the university. Since its founding, the Department has assembled groups of faculty members with diverse research interests and expertise to tackle fundamental problems of life science. All of the faculty members had prior research experience at top internationally-acclaimed universities before joining SUSTech and some of them had been awarded tenures in these universities or research institutions worldwide. The faculty of the department are supported by the state-of-the-art scientific research platform facilities and talent recruitment programs, such as the Guangdong Provincial Key Laboratory, Guangdong Provincial "Pearl River Talent Program" for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Cryo-EM Center, Plant and Food Research Institute, Neuroscience Research Institute and Experimental Animal Center. Concentrated on five major areas, namely molecular cell biology, neurobiology, plant biology, system biology and structural biology, their research focuses on the frontiers of life science and high-impact human health issues, with cross-disciplinary approaches. The life science was approved to be the Guangdong Provincial key discipline in 2016. In 2018, the Department was authorized to confer doctoral and master degrees, which sets the department on track to be developed with top-tier priority in Guangdong Province. On this basis, we set up a special major in Bioinformatics to meet the urgent needs of the society for talents in this field. With the strength of its excellent basis and faculty in bioinformatics research, the Department of Biology is committed to cultivating excellent comprehensive and innovative talents with strong biological information research and practical abilities.
