B. With firm grasp of the basis theory of Biology, professional knowledge and experimental skills, professional development and frontiers; being competent of reading and writing scientific papers(In Chinese or English); with the ability to carry out scientific research work, being competent in the specialized field of teaching and research, with new insights in scientific or specialized theory or technique.

C. With physical and mental health.

D. With rigorous scientific attitude, good team spirit, strong communication ability and lifelong learning ability.

E. With strong creativity in this discipline field.

Ⅲ. Study duration and teaching methods

The master program at Institute of Life Sciences usually is a 3 year program. A master degree student can not graduate in less than 2 years or more than 4 years. The student participated in this program should finish 18 credit courses during the 1styear, including at least 14 credits from degree courses and 4 or more credits from elective courses. Most courses are lectured in fall semester. In the remaining 2-2.5 years, the student should focus on the project research and publish a paper in a peer reviewed journal. After pass oral defense of the degree dissertation, the master degree will be awarded. Institute of Life Sciences focus on developing the student’s ability to initiate and carry out original research projects. The research programs in the institute covers the major fields of biology.

Ⅴ. Credit requirement for practice

Biology is an experimental discipline, so students are required to do scientific experiments and learn from project research.The post-graduate students are also required to attend related seminars and experts forum, and if possible, to participate in social investigation and research or technology promotion.

1. Academic activity and seminar (³8 credits)

A postgraduate student for master degree in biology should take part in academic activity or seminar for more than 10 time, 0.5 credit each time, total 5 credit. Participation in society polling activity or technology & science promotion activity (2 credits). Post presentation or oral presentation in domestic or international conference once 1 credit. Regularly participate in lab meeting to discuss research projects weekly or bi-weekly (5 credits).

2. Reading scientific research papers and reviews (³2 credits)

A postgraduate student should read and present one or two English academic papers related to his research project every semester. And student is recommended to read more than one academic paper weekly.

3. Other practice activity (1 credit)

For those students need to do lab experiments for their research projects, the lab experiments are deemed as important practice activity. If ones research project involves no lab experiment, teaching assist or research assist to the supervisor is practice activity. A student should has at least a month experience of practice activity.

Ⅵ. Advisor committee and supervisor

The prospect postgraduate student should contact a principle investigator (PI) in this institute or a mentor in the biological mater degree program during the admission application process. An Advisory Committee initially consists of at least 3 members of the Graduate Faculty, including the Major Advisor, who acts as the chair. At least 2 members must be from Institute of Life Sciences, with at least 1 of these being a full member of the Faculty. The remaining 2 members may be from Institute of Life Sciences or another college, with 1 being a full member of the Graduate Faculty. The committee should be established by the end of the second semester of the student’s graduate career.

Ⅷ. Degree dissertation

Graduate students are required to present the research proposal in the 1stacademic year. Once the research proposal, which is held by the institute, is agreed by the advisor committee or supervisor, the student can report the research progress in the 2edacademic year and submit the degree dissertation 6 months later. The content of dissertation should cover his research proposal, his research project and his relevant publications in a format similar previous degree dissertation including background, methods, results, discussion and references. The details can be find in the document ‘The instruction of publication requirement for a postgraduate student to apply for degree certificate at Jiangsu University”.

VIII. Practice process and requirement

A post-graduate student should carry on original research projects to complete the degree dissertation. (The details for practice process and requirement see article V)

IX. Other issues and requirements

Graduate students are required to initiate their thesis study projects prior to the end of the second semester. The medium-term examination for thesis study is scheduled in the fourth semester. Other following important schedules relevant to your graduate study could be found from the Overseas Education College (OEC) at Jiangsu University. In general, a Master’s student is required to have a research proposal and a plan of study accepted by his or her Graduate Advisory Committee by the end of the second semester of study. A list of completed courses and those proposed to meet school requirements should also be prepared. A meeting of the Advisory Committee should be convened by the student to discuss his/her proposal and course work.

Every graduate student is required to publish at least one research paper in a recognized academic journal prior to being eligible to apply for dissertation defense. The thesis must demonstrate skill of research techniques, ability to perform original and independent research, and skill in concluding and discussion. Jiangsu University should the first institute of the aforementioned publication. Details can be found in “The principle instruction of post-graduate programs at Jiangsu university”.

Research Interesting

Ubiquitin-proteasome sytem and cancer

The ubiquitin-proteasome system functions in a wide variety of cellular processes, including DNA replication, DNA repair, transcription, protein synthesis, cell differentiation and apoptosis. Ubiquitination is carried out by an enzymatic cascade composed of the E1 ubiquitin-activating enzyme, the E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme and the E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase. Lots of studies show that Lys-63-linked chains is associated with signal transduction, membrane-protein trafficking, endocytosis and DNA repair, in contrast, K6, K11, K27, K29, K33, K48, linked ubiquitin chains target proteins for proteasome-mediated degradation. At present, we focus three areas as follows:

1.The functional mechanism of PPARγ E3 ubiquitin ligase

2.The molecular mechanism of PPARs (PPARα, PPARγ, PPARδ) regulates tumorigenesis.

3. Synthesis and scan novel PPARs ligands to treat diseases.
