BEIJING, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- The China-Hungary Belt and Road joint laboratory on brain science was established recently in east China's Shanghai Municipality, reported cctv.com quoting the Shanghai Science and Technology Committee (STCSM).
Approved by the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Belt and Road joint laboratory is the highest-level platform for national scientific and technological cooperation and innovation with foreign countries built with reference to national key laboratories, aiming at providing strong scientific and technological support for innovation under the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) through practical cooperation between scientists from both sides.
Undertaken by the Center for Excellence in Brain Science and Intelligence Technology (Institute of Neuroscience), Chinese Academy of Sciences, the China-Hungary Belt and Road joint laboratory on brain science is aimed at promoting in-depth cooperation between China and Hungary in neuroscience. It is the first Belt and Road joint laboratory established in Shanghai.
The Center for Excellence in Brain Science and Intelligence Technology has successfully created the world's first monkey cloned from somatic cells and the world's first batch of monkey models cloned from somatic cells with biological rhythm disorder, overcoming the worldwide problem of somatic cell cloning of non-human primates, and emerging in the field of global brain science research.
Hungary is a powerhouse in brain science among the Belt and Road countries. The Institute of Experimental Medicine with the Hungarian Academy of Sciences has a solid foundation in traditional neuroanatomy and electrophysiology. It is rated as a world-class neuroscience research center by a committee of the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO).
