The main aim of this event was to visit laboratories, which required presentation of current research of IPC, looking for joint research topics, and to sign a cooperation agreement between the Institute of Physical Chemistry PAS and State Key Laboratory of Medicinal Chemical Biology Nankai University.
The Nankai University, as one of the strongest scientific units, hosts two prestigious and well-funded State Key Laboratories: one of Medicinal Chemical Biology and the second - of Elemento-Organic Chemistry. The National Key Laboratories are private-public laboratories, currently receiving funding and administrative support from the central government of the People's Republic of China. The State Key Laboratory of Medicinal Chemical Biology has an interdisciplinary character, and as such is a valuable partner for the IPC in the face of strong biological attributions of the ERA Chair project.
