RNA Medical Center was established by Zhejiang University School of Medicine with at the pinnacle of research for the frontier of world science and technology and people’s life and health. Based on the leadership of its staff, the center plans to adopt a dynamic, multi-scale and multi-dimensional systematic research paradigm to explore a series of new targets such as RNA and its peptide derivatives which play a key role in major human diseases such as tumors and rare genetic diseases. It also aims to develop new RNA drugs and mRNA vaccines for tumors and rare genetic diseases, focusing on solving the bottleneck problem of an RNA in vivo delivery system. Thus, it aims to start a new journey of RNA medicine in the clinical diagnosis and treatment of complex human diseases, becoming a domestically advanced, international first-class, multi-disciplinary, basic research and clinical translation platform centered on RNA medicine. As such, it will provide open and shared resources and comprehensive technical support for China’s RNA medical science research, and make an important contribution to the strategy of serving a healthy China.

Zhejiang University RNA Medical Center is located in the International Institutes of Medicine, Zhejiang University(ZJUIIH) which lies in Yiwu City, Zhejiang Province. ZJUIIH is built with the International School of Medical, Zhejiang University(ZJUISM) and the Fourth Affiliated Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine(ZJU4H). ZJUIIH currently has 1 academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, 1 Changjiang Scholar of the Ministry of Education, 3 winners of the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars, 2 winners of the National Special Support Program for High-level Talent, 3 Zhejiang University Qiushi Distinguished Scholars, 3 winners of Excellent Young Scientists Fund and 5 researchers from Zhejiang University “Hundred Talents Program”. ZJUIIH has been approved as a provincial-level new R&D institution in Zhejiang Province.
