Research Overview

Research is at the core of SAHZU’s mission. SAHZU strives to work on cutting-edge research and technology, and ultimately, to carry out translational work that improves care and treatments. More than 300 active national and provincial scientific research programs are ongoing at SAHZU every year. The number of competitive research funding awarded to SAHZU by Natural Science Foundation of China rank top one in Zhejiang Province for 9 years running and stands at a leading level in China. It is noteworthy that over 10 international cooperative research projects have received award from Natural Science Foundation of China over the past years. SAHZU has had five National Prizes for Progress in Science and Technology and one National Award for Technological Invention from the central government since 2001, which is the most prestigious award for Chinese scientists. In 2018, the number of articles published in top 10% SCI journals by SAHZU physicians ranked the 3rd most among all medical institutions in China according to the Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (ISTIC).

SAHZU has heavily invested in research and built up the Clinical Research Center, small animal lab, non-human primate lab, the GMP standard Biotherapy Center, innovation clubs as well as other facilities for our investigators, creating a complete loop from basic and clinical research to translational work and industrialization of research findings. Biodata Base, Epidemiological and Biological Statistics Analysis Office and the SIDER-FERCAP accredited Ethnic Review Committee give great support to all the research activities at the hospital. SAHZU now has a national impact on new technology development, clinical service and translational work in a few key disciplines.

SAHZU is also on its unique development track, from a joint diagnosis center to a international medical center combined with joint training and research programs. By building extensive collaborative programs, for example, international academic conferences, research projects, setting up labs and developing clinical databases, with internationally renowned medical institutions such as UCLA, Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins Hospital, SAHZU is improving its research ability all round.
