The School of Life Science & Biotechnology (SLSB) was established in Jan 2010. The discipline “Biotechnology and Bioengineering” was financially supported by the state “211 Program” and “985 Program”. With the effort of all staffs in SLSB ,the support of Dalian University of Technology and all circles’s people, the biological subject of SLSB developed rapidly. In 2007, “Biochemical engineering” was approved as a state key discipline. Now the SLSB has three Doctoral degree programs:“Biomedical Engineering”、“Biochemical Engineering” and “Bioengineering and Biotechnology”.
In recent years, the research platform of the SLSB was continuously improved. In 2004, the Liaoning provincial Key Laboratory of Bioengineering was established. In 2007, Engineering Research Center for Food Safety of Animal Origin, the Ministry of Education was authorized. In 2014 Liaoning Provincial Key Laboratory of Molecular Recognition and Imaging and Dalian key laboratory of Marine Bioengineering was authorized. These platforms greatly supported the students training and scientific research in the SLSB as well as technical service to the society.
