The school of Life Science and Technology was founded at the end of 2000, which was the production of the merging of former -Xi’an Jiaotong University, Xi’an Medical University and the Shaanxi Financial & Economic College, and the production of subject crossing of information science, medicine and biology as well.
Currently, there are seventy faculties in the school . Among them two professors won the honor of National Brilliant Contributed Young and Middle Aged Specialist; one professor elected as the member of the first and second rank of National “Top Hundred、Thousand and Ten thousands of Talents” Project; two professors supported by the National Science Foundation for Outstanding Young Scientists of China; one professor listed as the “Century Talent” of Ministry of Education of China; one professor elected as the member of "Tengfei" professorship Project. Moreover, there are 15 full-time professors and 17 full-time associate professors.
The school of Life Science and Technology consists of two departments(the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Department of Biological Engineering);one National Training Base (National base for the Training of Talents in Life Science and Technology); six research institutes (Institute of Biomedical Engineering research, Institute of Molecular Genetics research, Institute of Modern Separation Science ,Institute for Cancer research, Biomedical Engineering & Instrument research institutes and Biological Engineering research institute); two research centers(Bioinformatics research center, Rehabilitation Science & Technology research center); three state or provincial key laboratories(State Specialized Laboratory of Modern Medical Electronic Technology and Instrument, the Biomedical-information Engineering laboratory of State Ministry of Education, Shaanxi Key Laboratory of Biomedical Engineering),; one engineering research center(Xi’an Jiaotong University branch of National Medical and Health-care Instrument Researching Center).
The school offers two majors for Bachelor’s degree (Biomedical Engineering ,Biological Engineering) ,one National Training Base of Life Science and Technology(six years study for Master’ s degree), our graduate program includes four Master’s degree subjects (Biomedical Engineering, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Biophysics, Medicine of Rehabilitation and Physical therapy), four Ph.D. degree subjects(Biomedical Engineering, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Biophysics, Medicine of Rehabilitation and Physical therapy), one post-doctor station(Biomedical Engineering), and one State key Discipline of Biomedical Engineering .
The main research fields of the school of Life Science and Technology are Biomedical Informatics and Instrumentation, Biomedical Ultrasound, Biomedical Signal Processing, Medical Imaging and Image Processing , Biomedical Photonics, Speech and Neuromuscular System, Real-time chiri-cal consmlfation and Medical Information System，Molecular Genetics，Statistic Genetics, Proteomics and Functional Genomics, Bioinformatics, Biomaterials，Bio-pharmaceutical Engineering, Bio-separation Engineering，Instrumental Analysis, Environmental Monitoring and Water Pollution handling，Immunopathogy and Tumor Immunity，Tumor Molecular Genetics，Molecular Archaeology，Bio-Microsystems，Biological Effect of Fluctuated Energy and Molecular Imaging, Neurobiological physics and Recognition Science, Rehabilitation Engineering and Technology etc.
The School of life science and technology has undertaken more than 60 research projects including National Natural Science Foundation projects, National Science Foundation for Outstanding Young Scientists projects, National High-Tech Project(“863”) , provincial and ministry foundation projects and other collaborated research projects with enterprise etc. Every year we publish over one hundred papers in domestic and international journals. And recently we have published several influential textbooks and academic monographs. Moreover, we have won more than ten awards such as National Invention Award, National technology Progress Award and so on. As life science is a promising subject in the 21st century, the school of life science and technology will move forward stably.
