Depression is still more or less believed to be a purely psychological disease in popular perception but cutting-edge brain research, which delves into the recesses of the human brain, is trying to fully explain the physio-chemical process. This offers the potential for the development of fast-acting drugs for people afflicted with the disease. At the forefront of this research is Zhu Shujia, a senior researcher at the Center for Excellence in Brain Science and Intelligence Technology under the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Since 2012, LIU Shaochuang has led a team in tracking and studying wild camels using satellite remote sensing technology.

For many years, China remained a great fantasy in Professor Aldo's imagination. Now the time has come for him to visit colleagues in the country, build common projects and enjoy the monuments, experience the natural scenarios and the culture of the empire that he had known as kids from the book of Marco Polo. Professor Aldo is now building a new research unit "Laboratory of Inflammation and Vaccines" at Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology, with a group of young Chinese scientists. This is a laboratory aiming to develop novel immunotherapeutic drugs and vaccines.
