Northwestern Polytechnical University Introduction:

Located in the ancient capital city - Xi’an, Northwestern Polytechnical University (NPU), the powerhouse of western China, is entering a new phase of growth by taking opportunities to develop original and cutting-edge innovations.

The history of NPU can be traced back to 1938. The university was designated as one of the National Key Universities of China in 1960. It was among the first batch of universities selected for Project 211 in 1995 and became part of Project 985 in 2001. In 2021, NPU ranks among the top 200 according to the Academic Ranking of World Universities. In recent years, NPU had set various records in China and produced many leading figures in all aspects of society and industries contributing to the world’s science, technology, and social-economic developments.

School of Life Sciences Introduction:

The School of Life Sciences at Northwestern Polytechnical University was established in April 2004. The vision of the school is “to be driven by China’s major needs in the fields of aeronautics, astronautics, and marine science and technologies, with the support from mainstream disciplines in life sciences, to integrate the basic disciplines with technology and engineering disciplines, and to joint basic research and applied research”. The school aims to build a domestic first-class and world-renowned base for scientific research and training of high-level talents with distinctive disciplinary characteristics.

The scientific research of the school focus on the directions of special environmental biology (concerning special space environments; extreme environments with low pressure, low oxygen, high altitude with extreme coldness, and extreme heat and humidity; physic environments involving magnetism, electricity, light, heat, and sound), material biology, and medical engineering. These special research directions also incorporate the special features from education and research in aeronautics, astronautics, and marine engineering and technologies, and they are orientated toward the life and health aspects of common people. There are distinctive cross-fusion characteristics of multi-disciplines. The research contents cover multiple sub-disciplinary directions including biochemistry, molecular cell biology, biophysics, microbiology, biomaterials, pharmacy, pharmacology, medicinal chemistry, bioinformatics, biomechanics, magnetic biology, etc.
