The Department of Pharmacology at Zunyi Medical College was established by the Top-ranking Professor Zhang, Yi in 1949 and moved from Dalian to Zunyi in 1969. Since 1982, Under the leadership of Professors Liu, Guo-Xiong, Huang, Xie-Nan, Sun, An-Sheng and Shi, Jing-Shan, the Department of pharmacology has made tremendous progress and achieved outstanding accomplishments.
It is the first approved University to recruit graduate students nationwide not only in 1955 but also in 1978. The Department was among the first to grant Master degree authorization after “Cultural Revolution” in 1981. Since 2001, the Department co-trained doctoral graduate students with other universities, such as Chongqing Medical University and Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

In 2006, “the Key Lab of Basic Pharmacology of Guizhou” was established. The Department was named the first batch of Science and Technology Innovation Team of Guizhou in 2008 and Teaching Excellence Team in 2009. In the collaboration with Guizhou Bailing Pharmaceutical Company, the Pharmacology and Toxicology of Graduate Education Innovation Base was founded. In 2010, it was awarded the “Medical Creative Talent Base of Guizhou subdivision. In 2011, The Pharmacology Department was affiliated to the Key Lab of Basic Pharmacology of Guizhou. Currently, the Faculty consists of various levels of talents with appropriate age, academic title and educational background.
In the teaching and scientific research, we inherit and develop the spirit of “education by teaching and education by rigorous discipline”. Upon imparting the basic knowledge, we pay special attention to foster the creative thinking and innovative capability. We undertake the teaching task of Pharmacology, Clinical Pharmacology and Development of Pharmacology and Pharmacology Experiment and Functional Experiment. Besides, we provide the internship practice for undergraduate students in and outside Zunyi Medical College and guide them to complete the bachelor thesis. Furthermore, we also provide the practical platform for the “Undergraduate Design Innovation” project. In the graduate student training, we are experienced in stimulating their innovative spirit and have got excellent results. Based on the foundation of students’ Innovation Training Base of New Drug Pharmacology and Toxicology Research, we have promoted the integration of “Academia, Research and Industry” to train students with capability to serve the society. The graduate students from the Department are welcome everywhere, and became the mainstay of the recruited Units including Academia, Research Institute, Hospitals, and Pharmaceutical Companies.
The Key Lab of Pharmacology has three stable and well-developed directions including Neuropharmacology, Cardiovascular pharmacology and Pharmacokinetics and Toxicology. In recent 5 years, we have undertaken 6 research projects funded by the National Government and more than 30 by Guizhou Province Administrations The research funds have reached to over￥10,000,000. We have published more than 170 academic papers, among which 44 papers have been indexed by SCI and 63 by Chinese Core Journals. Additionally, we have won many Guizhou Science and Technology Progress Awards, including one first class, one second class and two third class and Guizhou Medical Association Science and Technology Award (two first class) and one National Utility Model Patent.
The Key Lab of Basic Pharmacology of Guizhou focuses on teaching-centred pattern and integrates teaching with scientific research to serve the society, and contributes to train talents for medical and pharmaceutical development, and makes contributions to Zunyi Medical College and Guizhou province in scientific research and practice.
