In 2006, Shenyang Pharmaceutical University established Faculty of Life Sciences and Biological Pharmacy on the basis of the integration of the two oldest disciplines, namely, department of biological pharmacy from School of Pharmaceutical Engineering and department of pharmacology and toxicology from School of Pharmacy.

The new faculty consists of two departments: Department of Bio-pharmacy including Biochemistry and molecular biology, cell biology and microbiology, biotechnology and bio-pharmacy; Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology including pharmacology, physiology, clinical pharmacy and GLP research center.In addition, it also has three experimental centers under the supervision of both SPU and the faculty, namely biology teaching experiment center, human function teaching experimental center and animal experimental center. Faculty of Life Sciences and Biological Pharmacy has four undergraduate majors: education base of national life science and technology (six years for BA and MA degrees), biological engineering (four years), clinical pharmacy (five years) and bio Pharmacy (four years). Seven specialties are offered for graduate students: microbiology and biochemistry, pharmacy, biology, pharmacology, clinical pharmacy, basic combination of traditional Chinese and Western medicine, clinical combination of traditional Chinese and Western medicine, and Pharmaceutical Sciences (professional master's degree). Postgraduates are recruited in related fields of pharmacy and biology. There are 9 graduate classes and 33 undergraduate classes. The number of all kinds of full-time students is more than 1500, 80 being doctoral candidates, more than 450 graduate students, more than 1020 undergraduates. Its disciplinary power and research ability are stronger. After many years of deposition, the school has conducted in-depth research in microbial secondary metabolites, functional proteins, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, neurological and psychiatric pharmacology, tumor and endocrine pharmacology, compounds, active screening and other fields. The faculty approved as 1 major new drug discovery platform of "11thFive-Year plan" and "12thFive-Year plan" by national Ministry of Science and Technology, major new drug platform of Liaoning Province, important part of Liaoning Province Key Laboratory of New Drug Efficacy. The faculty also has pharmacology laboratory of traditional Chinese Medicine Research Laboratory by the National Pharmaceutical Administration, State Traditional Chinese Medicine Administration Key Laboratory for Antidepressant Chinese Medicine, Key Laboratory of Depression Screening in Liaoning Province, Liaoning Province Key Laboratory of New Drug Evaluation and New Drug Efficacy, the Microbial Engineering Technology Center for Medicinal Application in Liaoning Province, Liaoning Provincial Key Laboratory of Microbial Pharmacy, Research Center of Plant Polyphenols and Development Engineering Technology in Liaoning Province, the Research Center of Innovative Medicine and Clinical Translational Engineering Technology in Liaoning Province, and so on. The faculty has many precision instruments such as patch clamp, flow cytometry, protein purification and analysis system, proteomics two-dimensional electrophoresis instrument. Now the faculty is undertaking more than 30 scientific research projects approved by the Ministry of Science and Technology, the National Science Fund and other provincial and ministerial departments. In recent years, more than 100 papers have been published annually, of which about 30 have been collected by SCI. Among them, paper published in the famous international journals Nature Nanotechnology (2016, IF=34 )by the research group of Professor Wu Chunfu and Professor Yang Jingyu revealed for the first time in the world the significant inhibitory effect of carbon nanotubes on methamphetamine induced spirit.

The faculty has a vigorous teaching faculty full of high academic level and spirit of solidarity and cooperation. There are 92 full-time teachers, of whom 20 are professors and 37 are associate professors,State Council special allowance experts,first national candidates ofnew century talents project, provincial leading talents, outstanding experts, young academic leaders, Liaoning province high school talent support program candidates, provincial teaching masters and so on.

The teaching style is rigorous and the teaching quality is high.Pharmacology is awarded as national excellent teaching team; bioengineering is rated as national characteristic specialty; biology experiment teaching center and pharmacology experiment teaching center are provincial experimental teaching demonstration centers. There are 2 state-level quality courses, 4 provincial quality courses and 1 provincial bilingual demonstration course. Graduates of all levels are welcomed by the society, and their employment rate and employment level are higher.

The faculty is committed to research and application of life science in the field of pharmacy and training its pharmaceutical talents. It exerts its efforts in extensive cooperation with scholars at home and abroad, and pharmaceutical enterprises.
