IGEAM comprises 4 laboratories: Gene Targeting laboratory Reproduction and Conservation laboratory, Genotype and Phenotype Analysis laboratory and Gene Function Analysis laboratory.
According to the standard of the world’s top research universities, IGEAM adapts a vertical management system. The Director is in full charge of IGEAM under the guidance of academic committee. The institute covers a wide range of research fields, focusing on six main research areas: functional genomics of neurological disorders, cancer and metastasis, endocrine diseases, cardiovascular diseases, immune system diseases and integrative medicine research. A three-in-one model animal research platform, which is “raising animals, modeling animals, and testing animals" has been set up. With the integration of Cre-LoxP system and, cutting-edge TALEN and CRISPR/Cas9 technologies, IGEAM is capable of generating both tissue-specific, inducible and whole-body knockout and knock-in animal models of major human diseases in a faster, cheaper and more efficient manner. In consistent with the genetic function research on major human diseases, Dalian medical university IGEAM is under the construction of a leading national science and technology platform.
"To embody characteristics, to highlight connotation, to form the resultant force and to pursue effectiveness", IGEAM has been filling the gap the field of research and development in genetic engineering animal models of northeastern China, building a bridge realizing the transformation from basic medicine to clinical medicine, and promoting the deep development of translational medicine and clinical medicine.
