The Organizational Structure of the Institutes

The Institutes are made up of the scholarship committee, the professor committee, the appraisal committee, and the audit committee, which are responsible for the research areas, performance appraisal, supervision and financial audit respectively to ensure the sustainable and successful development of the Institutes.

The Institutes cover an area of over 10000 square meters, with 850 square meters at each floor. They have spacious laboratories and are equipped with state-of-art research apparatus worth over 30 million RMB yuan (over 4.7 million dollars), including flow cytometry, HPLC-MS and confocal microscope and so on, which are shared by the labs.

Management of West China Institutes for Women and Children’s Health

The vision of the Institutes is to be a centre of excellence in research in the field of child and maternal health both nationally and internationally, integrating basic research and clinical practice.

Opening up and mobility of Researchers

We keep pace with the advanced technology by opening up and strengthening the exchange and cooperation with the national and international institutions.

Our labs are open to relative research institutions in the field of maternal and child health at home and abroad, and provide a research platform linking scientific research and clinical practice. Meanwhile the positions in the labs are open for excellent researchers worldwide.

We are actively involved in holding diversified academic activities, taking part in high-level academic conferences, and inviting experts and scholars for academic exchanges. Also renowned scientists are invited to do research in the Institutes so as to improve its core competiveness in disciplinary development, and excellent researchers will be introduced nationally and internationally, raising the international reputation of the Institutes and Sichuan University.

Based upon performance appraisal, mobility of researchers is essential for working out the potential of the researchers. Meanwhile, elimination mechanism for researchers is introduced so that unqualified ones will be eliminated and excellent researchers can have more research resources. Thus more talents can be attracted and their enthusiasm be aroused.

Cooperation and competition

Cooperation is the basis of competition, and competition is the motivation, which can lead to a redistribution of research resources, and ensure a qualified team of researchers. We encourage competition among cooperation, and this mechanism guarantee the competitive edge  and sustainable movement of the Institutes.
