The School has a regard for discipline development and applications of research projects. We encourages our teachers to apply foundation projects, and offers favorable conditions for applications. In 2009, the School has increased 20 research projects: 7 projects funded by the national Natural Science Foundation (including 2 projects by Tianyuan Foundation, 2 projects by the Young Foundation ), 4 projects funded by Ministries. Now, we are undertaking 25 projects funded by the National Natural Science Foundation. 

In 2009, 207 papers have been published, of which 69 have been included in core journals, 15 have been included in Journals of Statistic Source, and 114 have been included in SCI, EI and ISTP. Six textbooks have been published. Eight projects have obtained patent-licensing. 

The School of Science is open to the world and taking an active part in international and domestic academic exchanges. In 2009, we invited domestic and foreign specialists to give 56 lectures, 76 teachers participated in academic conferences.The School also encourages our teachers to attend international exchanges and cooperations. In 2009, we sent three teachers to go to the US and Australia for one-year research programs. Eight teachers went to Taiwan for short-time academic exchanges. 

In 2009, we held 13 seminars for our teachers. In order to strengthen the communication between our teachers, especially for the young teachers, we held 5 workshops for academic exchange, 13 young teachers gave presentations, and 55 teachers participated in the worshops. The speakers and the audience disscussed their latest research results. The discussions brought the enthusiasm into our research. 

In 2009, our young teachers obtained outstanding research results. Dr. Wen Dehua published a paper on Phys. Rev. Lett which is a top journal in Physics. An undergraduate student published a academic paper on Appl. Phys. Lett under the supervision of Dr. Zhu Rui. Dr. Hou Zhilin obtained the Guangdong Scientific and Technological Progress Award two second class as second finisher. And the preliminary establishment of High Pressure Science Laboratory which took charged by Prof. Chen Xiaojia was finished. Research of high pressure science will make our research to enter into a new level.
