Biological Science Experiment Teaching Center is a platform providing experiment teaching in basic biological science, professional basis and specialized experiment for all undergraduates. The Center was approved to be one of the first Experiment Teaching Demonstration Centers of Sichuan province in 2000 and the National Level Experiment Teaching Demonstration Center in 2006.
The Center covers a laboratory area of 5000 square meters, and has 2879 pieces (sets) of instrument and equipment with a total value of 17,000,000 RMB. The Center offers experiment for 1800 undergraduates from Colleges such as College of Life Science, West China College of Basic and Forensic Medicine, West China College of Clinical Medicine, Stomatology, Public Health and Chemistry College, etc. Totally there are 172 experiment items and the annual teaching load reaches to 240,000 person• credit hour. In addition, every year about 150 students from other institutions including China-America Joint Class, Nepal Continuing Study Course, Chengdu University of TCM, The Third Military Medical University and Chongqing Medical University will complete experiment in the Center.
