Laboratory of Functional Medicine

Post time:2017-12-13 Viewed:446

        Laboratory of Functional Medicine in West China School of Basic Medical Sciences & Forensic Medicine, Sichuan University was established in 1999, belonging to West China Medical foundation Experiment Teaching Center. It is teaching platform for training undergraduate students in research work of basic medical science. As an important part of experiment teaching program in “Huaxi Medicine” basic medical science education, it carries out the course “Experiments of Functional Medicine” for the medical students in Sichuan University. The course was named as “Excellent Course” in Sichuan Province in 2012.
 
Courses:
 
1. Experiments of Functional Medicine
       This course is based on the experiment teaching programs of the three courses "Physiology, Pharmacology and Pathophysiology". It is designed to study 1. Detect the physiological activities and regulations of the body; 2. Identify and address the mechnisms of disease including occurrence, development and outcome; 3. Evaluate the biochemical or physiological effects of drugs on the organism. The main research objects are experimental animals and isolated organ tissues.
       The course is open for all medical students, incuding but not imited to the major of clinical medicine, stomatology, pharmacy, preventive medicine, Medical technology, nursing, rehabilitation medicine and other undergraduates. The average number of teaching is more than 55,000 hours per year. And it plays an important role in the training of medical students.
 
2. Practice in  Basic Medical Research Work
        This course is designed for supporting  innovative research work for undergraduate students. The students work in groups and achieve independent scientific research work through the system scientific training, including proposal writing, discussion, work in the lab and thesis defense.
        The course is open for the students major in Basic Medical Sciences.
 
3. Explore the mysteries of life in the medical lab
        The course will carry out the self-designed experiments. The area of experimental content could be cardiovascular disease or learning and memorizing related diseases. The course will help students to explore the pathogenesis of human diseases by replicating the human disease model. The students will be divided into groups, with the teachers guiding the way to the independent design project based on the discussion. And the students will process a reasonable and feasible research in the class. The course will train the students' ability to design research projects and explore them.
        The course is open for all students in Sichuan Univerisity
 
4. National Continuing Education Project "Training for the teachers in the Experiments of Functional Medicine"
       This course is the National Continuing Education Project.  This project has been held once a year in the Laboratory of Functional Medicine since 1999. It is designed to train the teachers in the Experiments of Funtional Medicine to renew the teaching methods. There are more than 2000 teaching stuffs take part in this project from the different college or university in China. This project comtributes to the improvement, development and reformation of the course “Experiments of Functional Medicine”
 
Faculty:
 
        Laboratory of Functional Medicine has an innovative and practical technical team, especially in the cardiovascular system and neuropsychiatric disease model. During the teaching of undergraduate studeents, we have innovated and reformed many experimental methods and techniques, which not only support undergraduates to carry out innovative research activities, but also provide practical support to the development of this course.

Facility:
 
        Laboratory of Functional Medicine is located on the 5th and 6th floors at the south side of Yifu Building in Huaxi Campus. There are nine classrooms to undergraduate conventional teaching; five  classrooms service the students major on the basic medical science to perform self-desighed, innovative research study.
        The laboratory utilizes state-of-the-art technology and equipment, including computerized biological signal analysis and processing system (POWERLAB, BL-420), microcirculation monitoring system, spectrophotometer, Laser Doppler, Brain Locator and so on.
        The laboratory has built a human-computer interaction experiment-teaching platform based on the virtual experiment course, realizing the computerization, digitization and networking of the experiment teaching.
 
Achievement:
        Laboratory of Functional Medicine has insisted on reform and innovation on teaching and researching. We constantly explored new theories, new technologies, new methods in the experimental course content and experimental teaching methods. We provide the most advanced teaching program in functional medical science. The laboratory has undertaken two projects of National Natural Science Foundation, seven projects from the Laboratory and Equipment Management of Sichuan University, two teaching reformation projects from the Academic Affairs Office, Sichuan University. The chief editor in textbook“Experiments of Functional Medicine”since 2006, which is issued nationally by Higher Education Press.
