硕士生培养方案 Master Training Program
(Discipline Code: 071003)
Brief Introduction of the Discipline: The Department of Physiology at Southeast University is located in the Ding Jia Qiao campus. It is one of oldest departments in the school, was established by the pioneer and leader in Physiology then, Professor Cai Qiao in the beginning of 1950’s. It has been approved for Master Degree Program since
1986. In 2006, the joint laboratory of Ion Channels & Diseases has been established between the Department of Physiology and the Key Lab of Education Ministry at the Department of Genetics and Molecular Biology, School of Basic Medical Science. The Lab has been equipped with modern research tools mainly in the directions of electrophysiology and molecular biology. The research projects in the Lab have been supported by grants from the National Natural Science Foundation and the Science and Technology Ministry.
Training Objectives: The program will provide systemic trainings in understanding one of the most important membrane signal transducer: Ion Channels. Through textbook teaching, literature reading and specific top analysis and discussion, our students will gain comprehensive knowledge and more importantly problem based learning skills in applying to their research practice. Also, the program will train our students in molecular biology and electrophysiology with extensive hands-on opportunities. The goal of this program is to prepare our graduates ready for engaging independent research in life science.
1. Molecular Mechanisms of Cardiac Electrophysiology
2. Molecular Mechanisms of Hearing and Deafness
3. Neurobiological Basis of Learning and Memory
4. Ion Channels in Pancreatic Function
Generally, the students are expected to graduate in 3 years, no longer than 4 years.
Credit requirements and curriculum (see attached list)
Students are required to read at least 50 papers on topics related to their thesis and research direction including 40 literatures in English and required to write a comprehensive literature review.
In addition to compliance with the provisions of the graduate school, thesis must be written in a systematic and
complete manner, presenting clear concepts, correct argument, realistic description, concise writing structure,
smooth and concise writing style, correct calculation, reliable data, and clear icons.
Thesis should be written based on students’ own study and experimental research. The findings presented in the thesis
should have higher academic value and positive impact on economic development of China. Students are required to conduct at least two year of research and to present their report at a research conference at the state level before being eligible to apply for a Master's degree.
