Experimental Teaching Center of Pharmaceutical Sciences

        Experimental Teaching Center of Pharmaceutical Sciences (ETCPS) was initially planned in 2006 and formally founded in September 2008 at Zhangjiang new campus by incorporating undergraduate students’ laboratories on various disciplines in pharmaceutical sciences, including laboratories on medicinal chemistry, pharmaceutical analysis, pharmaceutics, pharmacognosy, pharmacology, biochemistry, physical chemistry and biosynthesis as well as the computer center. Through a unified system for the management of the facilities and equipments and effective cooperation between the staffs, the Center is aiming at substantially improving the utilization of laboratories and equipments as well as the working efficiency of personnel resource. 

         ETCPS is located in experimental teaching building at the campus of School of Pharmacy, with a total area of 3100 m2. There are totally 8 laboratories, 5 instrument rooms, 4 preparing rooms, 1 balance room, 1 aseptic room, several storerooms and teachers' offices. More than 20 experimental courses with about 1300 class-hours are offered to undergraduate students at ETCPS every year. In addition, ETCPS also provides experimental courses for graduates and evening university students. So far, there are 10 full time staffs working in this Center, among them 7 young teachers have MS or Ph.D degrees and each of them is responsible for 2 or more experimental courses.

        Since 2007, both Fudan University and School of Pharmacy have provided great financial supports to ETCPS to renew the teaching instruments. At present, the Center is equipped with various instruments and apparatuses, such as GC-MS, LC-MS, IR, UV, HPLC, GC, fluorescence spectrophotometer, tablet machine, multi-channel physiological signal recorder and a cell laboratory. These instruments and laboratory conditions are open to students after teaching time to provide essential supports for their creative research programs.
        ETCPS has constituted a series of rules and regulations based on its specialties to standardize the experimental teaching management. In addition to the routine works such as experimental teaching, laboratory furnishings and purchasing new instruments, the faculty of Center has been actively involved in the teaching reform projects of Shanghai Municipal Education Commission and Academic Administration of Fudan University in recent years. They have participated in writing 6 experimental textbooks, and have offered a new course named "The Integrated Experiments of Pharmacy", and also held "The Competition on Pharmaceutical Knowledge and Experimental Skills"every two years. In recent years, ETCPS has also been active in academic exchanges with other pharmaceutical universities and colleges. For example, ETCPS teachers and student representatives have attended the“National Competitions on Experimental Skills for Pharmaceutical Undergraduate Students” and won the first prizes.
