Introduction to PHOENIX Center
The National Center for Protein Sciences (Beijing) (NCPSB), also known as the PHOENIX Center（Pilot Hub Of ENcyclopedic proteomIX) is a national leading science and technology infrastructure for biomedical research. Approved and jointly built by the State and Beijing governments under the 11th Five-Year Plan for the National Economic and Social Development of China, the Phoenix Center currently harbors the world largest cutting-edge mass spectrometry facility and several first-class hardware platforms including a bioinformatic platform supported by the "Tianhe 2" supercomputer. We have developed the fastest ability for mass spectrometry analysis and created the world first one-stop solution platform for proteomic data processing and analysis. The Phoenix Center is the first to introduce and pioneer the concept of Proteomics-Driven Precision Medicine (PDPM) as a new research paradigm in global scientific community.
Led by Dr. Fuchu He, member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Phoenix Center assembles a globally competitive research team, where senior and young scientists from home and aboard work together to answer big questions in medical sciences. This team has successfully hosted the Human Liver Proteome Project (HLPP), the first large-scale international collaborative initiative led by Chinese scientists. In the future, the Phoenix Center will continue to forge ahead on its mission for the implementation of the Human Proteome Project and the promotion of its world-wide scientific reputation. The Center aim to become a unique hub for global talents in lifeomics research for the forthcoming era of PDPM.
The Phoenix Center mainly focuses on the following research directions:
1. Proteomics/Metabolomics/Genomics, Transcriptomics, et al.
2. Functional proteomics
3. Bioinformatics/Big data in biomedicine/ Artificial Intelligence (AI) in medicine
