    Text Size: A A A

    IHB Honorary Director Prof. Jiankang LIU, academician of the CAS, presented a memorial tablet to Prof. Shi

    Prof. Yigong SHI, distinguished scientist in the field of structural biology from Tsinghua University was invited to make a presentation entitled “Scientific Research and Scientific Writing: with Special Reference to Structural Biology”, April 15th.

    In the presentation, Prof. Yigong SHI made a brief introduction to structural biology and explained the function of structural biology in fundamental research and medicine application. Structural biology is a branch of molecular biology, biochemistry, and biophysics concerned with the molecular structure of biological macromolecules, especially proteins and nucleic acids, how they acquire the structures they have, and how alterations in their structures affect their function. In recent years, the research of cell apoptosis from the view of structural biology has promoted the exploration of new and high efficient anti-cancer medicine.

    In addition, Prof. Shi introduced some of his personal notes on scientific research and scientific writing. He told the students that they must shift their concept of learning from simply receiving knowledge to creating knowledge. Being a graduate student, one must not only study for the sake of obtaining skills, but must know how to analyze problems and solve problems as well.

    Meanwhile, Prof. Shi said that he does not advocate academic harmony. We must seek common points while reserving differences and be brave to challenge the authority. Prof. Shi shared his experience on how to write scientific paper and pointed out that brainstorming is quite a useful way. The paper must be logic in style and language efficiency must be improved by reading English newspaper. He also encouraged the students to stick to their dreams. Being a scientist doesn’t mean that we cannot have material desire.

    Prof. Shi’s lecture aroused great interest among the students and they communicated with him enthusiastically.

    This lecture was jointly organized by IHB and Wuhan Educational Base, CAS.
