Beijing National Engineering Research Center for Biochips (hereinafter referred to as the "Center") and Boao Bio-Group Co., Ltd., based on Tsinghua University, was established on September 30, 2000 and officially awarded in October 2001. It is my country’s first A national engineering research center operating in a corporate manner. Cheng Jing, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and chair professor of Tsinghua University School of Medicine, serves as the director of the center.
The center is committed to the research and development of medical systems biology using biochips as the platform. It has completed research and development and the industry’s entire industrial chain layout in the field of "big health", and responds to the national health policy of "prevention first, Chinese and Western medicine". The health policy closely integrates modern medicine with traditional Chinese medicine, and through the engineering and scientific upgrading of traditional Chinese medicine, a large health industry sector integrating health products, health management and medical rehabilitation has been created.
