On behalf of our outstanding staff,

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Shenzhen Bay Laboratory. Shenzhen Bay Laboratory (SZBL) is one of the second batch of Guangdong Provincial Laboratories that are established to implement an innovation-oriented strategy to further high-quality development in the Guangdong Province. Its establishment and operation is a crucial step to promote scientific innovation, provide the basis for engaging the state laboratory complex whilst contributing to the strategic scheme of Innovative Guangdong and advancing the development of City of Shenzhen as a pilot zone for socialist modernization. To take this step, we will marshal all resources to make this long road ahead for SZBL to succeed.

China’s economy has entered a state of new phase. Economic growth is shifting from high speed to medium-to-high speed; transforming from a mode that emphasized scale and speed to one emphasizing quality and efficiency; escalating from being driven by production and investment to being driven by innovation. Our Lab will take initiatives to respond to the new trend, leveraging our role as the forerunner in technology innovation and as a powerhouse that fuels the prosperity of Shenzhen.

SZBL will be in line with the strictest international standards. With global reach and frontier perspectives, SZBL will drive research and innovation in areas of national and global need and is committed to the goal of engaging China’s state laboratories complex. SZBL will incorporate and combine advanced resources in the field of health sciences from the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area and Peking University with a guiding principle to germinate multifaceted and full-spectrum therapeutics to safeguard human health. Initial areas of research and discovery in SZBL are threefold, including bio-information, biomedical engineering and innovative drugs. Research areas will be the control and prevention of major diseases including cancer, metabolic syndromes and cardiovascular disease, and neurodegenerative disorders.
