In November 2010 and July 2018, UM obtained approval from the Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China to establish three State Key Laboratories, including the State Key Laboratory of Quality Research in Chinese Medicine (SKL-QRCM), the State Key Laboratory of Analog and Mixed-Signal VLSI (SKL-AMSV), and the State Key Laboratory of Internet of Things for Smart City (SKL-IOTSC).
State Key Laboratory of Quality Research in Chinese Medicine (SKL-QRCM) aims to be committed to address the key scientific and technical issues of quality evaluation of traditional Chinese medicine, develop a comprehensive R&D platform of quality Chinese medicine, and build a multidisciplinary academic team to carry out systematic transformational research, establish scientific quality standards for innovative research and development of traditional Chinese medicines and play a role in international exchange.
State Key Laboratory of Analog and Mixed-Signal VLSI (SKL-AMSV) mainly conducts cutting-edge research on various electronic systems with two main research emphases, including the analog-to-digital converters and low-power RF chips. The laboratory also actively develops research directions in power management and microfluidic chips.
State Key Laboratory of Internet of Things for Smart City (SKL-IOTSC) is the nation’s first state key laboratory in the Internet of Things for smart city. The laboratory puts forward common theories, algorithms and systems that are of fundamental importance, and develop exemplary applications for smart city. The laboratory carries out research on five fronts: intelligent sensing and network communication; urban big data and intelligent technology; smart energy; intelligent transportation; and public safety and disaster prevention.
