Jiangsu Key Laboratory of Marine Biology /NAU Institute of Marine Sciences

(JKL-MB/IMS-NAU)

   Jiangsu Key Laboratory of Marine Biologywas established in August 2007,which was officially approved by the Education Department and the Finance Department of Jiangsu, and was associated with the NAU key discipline of Marine Biology and NAU Institute of Marine Science. Research team comprises 7 professors, 6 associate professors, 3 staff and technicians and over 100 graduate students.

   The 21st century is an ocean-focused century. As a country with a big ocean area, it is very important to develop marine economy for China. To promote the formation of marine economic industrial chain and the development of marine economy for Jiangsu Province and set up a research base of marine biological resource, the JKL-MB/IMS-NAU has to be build a high-level resaerch platform with strong emphasis in marine sciences, and which attached great importance to the researches in Offshore Resources and Ecology, Marine Physiology and Molecular Biology, and Application of Marine Biological Resources.

   Since the 11th “Five Year Plan”, the JKL-MB/IMS-NAU has undertaken more than 30 research projects including the national projects, such as 863 projects, 948 projects and the projects granted by the National Natural Science Foundation of China, and the research founds are about 7 million Yuan RMB every year. The Lab has been awarded a first-class Award of S&T Extension from the Ministry of Education, one of the second-class Awards of Scientific Progress from Jiangsu Province. More than 100 articles had been published in SCI and EI journals, and 12 patents including 7 patents for invention were obtained in past five years.  

The research interests of the JKL-MB/IMS-NAU primarily focus on the following issues:

lMarine Algae Biotechnology

lMarine Biological Active Substances

lMarine Environment and Ecology

lStress Biology of Coastal Salt-tolerance Plant

lMarine Molecular Biology

lResearch and Utilization of Coastal Resources

lInformational Aquaculture in Artificial Seawater
