As a sub-center of the large-scale scientific instruments sharing platform in Chongqing, the Institute houses advanced scientific research instruments.
Additionally, the Institute has built an independent third-party medical testing institution for clinical services—the Molecular Medical Testing Center of Chongqing Medical University and the Molecular Medical Diagnostic Center of Chongqing, which provide health advice, disease prediction and high-quality individual diagnosis.
After 13 years of persistent striving and hard work, the Institute has established itself as a platform for leading-edge life science research and technology service, a incubator for outstanding scientific research and innovative talents, and an transformation center for scientific achievements. It has effectively elevated the scientific research level and capability of CQMU.
