深圳大学高等研究院
College Introduction    

The Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) has been established at Shenzhen University to provide both undergraduate and postgraduate education, focusing on interdisciplinary teaching and research. As a special platform at Shenzhen University, IAS seeks to

1. build a team consisting of experienced professors with international vision and young teachers with great potential;

2. adopt best-practice management methods used by overseas research universities to foster collaborations with world-class universities in Hong Kong and abroad;

3. create an academic atmosphere and training environment to meet with the international standards with the overall goal of attaining excellence in teaching, research and management.

IAS fosters the training of innovative talents, cutting-edge scientific research and hi-tech development in the cross fields of marine resources and environment, functional materials, biotechnology, and financial technology. The research outcomes and newly-trained talents will promote the hi-tech industries in Shenzhen, particularly emerging industries of strategic importance such as biology, Internet, new energy sources, new materials and next-generation information and communication technology and facilitate the transformation and growth of Shenzhen’s economy.

The Innovation Class in Science and Engineering (ICSE) of IAS has enrolled about 60 students each session during 2014-2018. The initial enrollment scale of graduate students is 10 to 30 students per year, and 30-60 students per year for the future, reaching 60-120 postgraduate students. The enrollment scale for doctoral students is 10-30 per year in the initial period, and the enrollment scale is 30 -60 students per year, reaching 120-240 doctoral students at school.

As of March 2018, IAS has over 20 full-time professors and 34 post-doctoral fellows. Full-time faculty members are employed on the basis of tenured or tenure-tracked positions. All professors, associate professors and assistant professors should be principle investigators of their own research groups, and will be employed, evaluated and promoted in line with domestic and foreign peer evaluation system. In research evaluation, quality of contribution to knowledge will be emphasized over simply the quantity of publications. All professors have studied abroad and met the qualifications of Shenzhen's high-level talents (Peacock Project) and the faculty include international academicians, experts of “National thousands of plans” Program (including Thousands Young Talents Plan), scholars of Chang Jiang Scholars Program, fellows of International Professional Society. They have got 77 projects of the National Natural Science Foundation grants, the Natural Science Foundation of Guangdong Province grants, the Science and Technology Projects of Shenzhen and the High-Caliber Personnel from the Peacock Project and published nearly 100 high-level international academic papers. Meanwhile, they have been invited to domestic and foreign academic conferences many times.

Combined with the characteristics of courses, students' abilities and teaching effects,IAS will adopt bilingual teaching .

Talk Information

自然条件下,细菌可独立浮游生存也可依附于表面,自组织、集体共生,由大量微生物群体粘附在表面共生行成的薄膜被称为生物被膜(biofilm),其厚度通常在 100-200µm之间。医学研究表明:生物膜感染会引起肺炎、尿道炎、肾结石、中耳炎、牙周炎等多种疾病,并因其对抗生素的抗性大幅增高,造成对这类感染的治疗极为困难。统计表明:生物膜感染和许多难以根治的反复性慢性感染,和约80%的急性院内致命感染有关。生物膜对植入性医疗机械(如人造器官,人工关节、骨骼支架等)或手术器具表面的污染会还会造成严重的术后感染,导致手术和移植的失败。在此,我将介绍如何通过发展一些新的原位表征方法去探索在铜绿假单胞菌生物被膜形成过程中涉及其形成机制的一系列核心问题,其中包括:1)细菌在表面初始粘附、运动过程;2)细菌表面的适应、菌落形成;及3)细菌群体的协作、通讯等过程等。我们研究表明,基于交叉学科的新方法引入可以极大地丰富现有的研究手段,帮助我们理解细菌生物被膜这一复杂的生物体系。
