Mandate, main activities of the institution and competencies

Mandate

The arbitrative diagnosis of highly pathogenic avian influenza; development of diagnostic and surveillance and analysis of virus variation; vaccine development, evaluation and update; as well as the exploration of the molecular basis for the virulence and host range of the avian influenza viruses. The research achievements of this division should provide technical consultation and products support to national policy regarding the control and prevention of animal influenza.

 

Competencies

Harbin Veterinary Research Institute (HVRI),subordinated to the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS),is located in Harbin, a beautiful and famous cultural city in northeast China. It was founded in June, 1948 as the first veterinary medicine research institute in China.

The primary objective of the Harbin Veterinary Research Institute (HVRI), CAAS is to protect the health of husbandry animals, to ensure the security of public health, and to promote scientific and technological developments for the prevention and control of animal infectious diseases.

List of experts

TITLE & FULL NAME: Dr. CHEN Hualan, Professor AREAS OF EXPERTISE: Virology, Vaccinology NO. YEARS OF EXPERIENCE: 20 years

CHEN Hualan is a virologist whose research focus is the study of influenza and the development of vaccines against this virus. She has established several platforms for avian influenza vaccine development, and over 140 billion doses of the vaccines developed by her have been used to control H5N1 influenza in poultry in China and other countries. She also performs extensive basic research to understand the evolution and the genetic basis of the virulence and host range of avian influenza viruses, and has published over 100 papers in international peer-reviewed journals, including Science. She was selected as one of “the 10 people that mattered in 2013” by the prominent interdisciplinary scientific journal Nature.
