Experience a new adventure during your sabbatical leave!
Welcome to Beijing Advanced Innovation Center for Genomics at Peking University (ICG), China.
The Introduction of ICG
Beijing Advanced Innovation Center for Genomics (ICG)（http://icg.pku.edu.cn/en/）is a new research center founded by Beijing Municipal Government at Peking University in 2016. The director of ICG is Prof. Xiaoliang Sunney Xie. The center aims to conduct cutting-edge research in genomic medicine, in order to provide new health solutions to the general population. The center aspires to become a leading player in the genetic diagnosis revolution by maintaining the focus on the future and promoting the application of a variety of genomic technologies into medical diagnosis. A long-term goal of ICG is to reduce the propagation of life-threatening genetic defects and cancer-related death rate in China and worldwide.
“Advanced” has three layers of implications. The Center sets lofty aims of serving the urgent and long-term need of the society as well as making scientific discoveries that have fundamental impact on the advancement of science. The Center will attract demonstrated top talents from around the world and train young scientists that promise great potential. It aims at helping to translate the latest biomedical research breakthroughs into new diagnostic tools and treatments in medical practices, with a highly collaborative and multi-disciplinary approach. Research Direction: 1. Precision Single Cell Genomics; 2. Precision Genome Editing; 3. Function Analysis of Genome; 4. Translational Medicine (preferable cancer).
