Key Laboratory of Pu-erh Tea Science, Ministry of Education
Key Laboratory of Pu-erh Tea Science, Ministry of Education, Yunnan Agricultural University, directed by Prof. Jun Sheng, was selected by ministry of Education of China as uniqueness of research centers of Pu-erh Tea in November 2011. Ministry of Education approved the integration of Yunnan province Tea Deep Processing Engineering Technology Research Center, Yunnan Tea and Tea Processing Scientific Experimental Agriculture Department Station, College of Food Science and Technology, College of LongRun Pu-erh Tea of Yunnan Agricultural University.
The goal of laboratory is to train professional talents of tea science and technology who serve countryand Yunnan province for social and economic development, and focus on innovative research in the forefront of the international tea studies. Laboratory also explores basic theory and key technologies of research transforming into application and support the development of tea industry. The scientific aim is to build the laboratory with international advanced level in the field of research on tea and application development, particularly in the tea regulating body metabolism, anti-tumor and other aspects of in-depth research, the creation of innovative theories, techniques and methods.
Research of our laboratory involved in the fieldof tea, chemistry, immunology and microbiology, including: (1) tea germplasm research, conservation and utilization; (2) tea biodiversity and ecological tea; (3) tea material basis and molecular mechanism of biological activity of factor efficacy and (4) application transformation of tea basic research achievements.
A third of the staff in our laboratory possesses a doctorate abroad, access to provincial funds to support major projects. Laboratory encourages innovation and supports the development of applied technology, is committed to combining innovation and entrepreneurship. We are looking forward to more innovative and entrepreneurial enthusiasm of colleagues to join our team.
