Science innovation is at the core of SAHZU’s missions. It is the reason why SAHZU people keep devoting themselves to research and development. In order to achieve this goal, SAHZU has been recruiting talents from all over the world while building a complete research loop by setting up research facilities ranging from basic clinical lab, small animal lab to non-primate animal lab, GMP standard cell therapy center and bio-bank, etc. To encourage innovation and translational research, SAHZU is testing a new mode that is to promote cross-discipline collaboration based on clinical needs with specific targets on certain complicated and difficult diseases. Our international collaborative partners also give their all round support to the research and development of SAHZU.
It is with these many efforts that SAHZU believes it will build a “world class” hospital with strong research ability and ultimately give back to our society.
