History The Department of Biochemistry and Pharmacology was founded in 1959 by Professor Gu Niufan, a well-known Psychopharmacology expert. In 1986, it became the psychopharmacology laboratory in Fudan University Medical College . The Department of Biochemistry and pharmacology mainly focused in clinical and basic research on schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder and other major mental disorders, and carries out medical communication activities related to mental health. The faculties had many funds as National Natural Science Funds, R & D programs of Shanghai, and Shanghai Jiao Tong University etc, and various talent projects. A number of doctors and graduate students had been trained here every year. As a public research platform for neurobiochemistry of mental diseases, our lab could detect dozens of active substances such as neurotransmitters, biomarkers, hormones, etc. in human, experimental animals, and cells, to provide the following services for clinicians and graduate students with research needs.
