Chinese researchers have discovered several new exotic and rare species of flora.
Chinese paleoanthropologists have found that ancient humans living across the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau during the past over 5,000 years share a single origin, deriving from a northern East Asian population that admixed with a deeply-diverged unknown human population.
A research team in southwest China's Yunnan Province said they had found a tropical monsoon forest community of Pterocymbium macranthum, a member of the genus "Pterocymbium," marking the first time this genus has ever been found in China.
China's first intelligent monitoring platform for the Yangtze finless porpoise and Chinese white dolphin has recently been put into operation.
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. Unlike zoologists who focus on species, Liu has studied the interrelationship between endangered animals and their environment, which he believes will help develop better protection strategies against the background of climate change.
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.
