  (4) New technology of chemical inspection: to focuson the application of artificial antibody, nano technology, immunoassay and enzymatic methods in the detection and control of small molecular chemicals and chemical contaminants.

  (5) Real-time analysis and monitoring technology: to use the methods of optical, electrochemical and quality testing to develop a new method for the in-situ and real-time detection of different pollutants and biomarkers, in the light of the latest development.

  (6) Biosensors: to establish an enzyme sensor and other biosensors for rapid detection and continuous observation of specific target molecules of different biological samples,with biometric methods and signal-conversion identification technologies.

7. Food safety and management science (code: 1004Z2)

  (1) Food hygiene and food toxicology

  (2) Food safety and management

8. Social medicine and health management (code: 107401)

  (1) Health services research

  (2) Evidence-based health policy

  (3) Medical security system

 

    The duration for doctoral students ranges fromthree to five years, while that for Master-Doctor combined program graduate students is usually five to six years.

Credit Requirements and Composition

    Total credits for doctoral students≥29; total credits for Master-Doctor combined program graduate student≥53.
