Department of Pharmaceutical Analysis

 

The Department of Pharmaceutical Analysis is among the earliest established departments in IMM. On its original basis, the National Research Center for Analysis of Drugs and Metabolites was founded in 1994. Currently there are 23 researchers in the department and more than 40% have advanced academic titles, including 1 academician (member of Chinese Academy of Sciences), 1 talent of “New Century Bai-Qian-Wan Talented personnel project”, and 1 talent has been awarded the title of New Century Excellent Talent in University. The discipline of pharmaceutical analysis has been recognized by the Ministry of Education as National University Medical Key Discipline. The postdoctoral program has been established in the department. Currently there are 4 Ph.D. supervisors and 3 M.Sc. supervisors in the department.
With 55 years of development, an integrated research system and technical platform has been built to feature mass spectrometry analysis, nuclear magnetic resonance analysis, X-ray diffraction analysis, in vitro and in vivo drug metabolism analysis, drug quality analysis, etc. According to the national demands for research and discovery of innovative drugs, the research priorities are as follows: making full use of advanced technology resource, carrying out researches on the new techniques and new methods in analysis of drugs and metabolites, quality control and standard formulation of new drug, as well as metabonomics and pharmaco-metabonomics.
It is noteworthy that the department undertook the preparatory work of Chinese Doping Control Center under the leadership of Academician Zhou Tonghui from 1986 to 1990. They developed test methods for more than 100 drugs in the prohibited drug list issued by International Olympic Committee (IOC), and received the qualification for doping analysis after repeatedly checking by IOC, thereby completing the doping task successfully for the 11th Asian Olympic Games held in Beijing in 1990. China thus became the first host country to undertake this work in history of the Asian Games. These achievements laid a solid foundation for development of doping control in China and won IMM the first level of National Prize for Progress in Science and Technology.
