UNMC China – Breakthroughs for Life
UNMC China, based out of Shanghai, seeks to create a platform that allows international collaboration, knowledge transfer, and technology transfer between the University of Nebraska Medical Center, its subsidiary UNeMed, and the Chinese medical industry and service providers.
Our Mission Statement
To be a world-renowned health science resource center through the dissemination and advancement of education, research and development, and world-class healthcare consulting and to engage with China as our international collaborator that brings value through innovations to all stakeholders.
How can UNMC China help you?
The specialists of UNMC China have three core healthcare focuses: technologies, medical services and education.
Success in the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s academic laboratories has translated to the creation of technologies that address significant medical and clinical needs. UNMC China negotiates mutually-beneficial licenses that allow these medical technologies to be developed for the Chinese marketplace.
UNMC China also offers healthcare consulting services for medical facilities in China that would like to modernize their use of technology and/or integrate Western-style medicine into their practices. UNMC China’s healthcare consultants concentrate on blending a healthcare facility’s unique qualities with the best practices of Western-style medicine as well as on bringing the advancements of telemedicine and telehealth to those who can benefit.
International education and collaboration can quickly contribute to an increase in discoveries and advancements in the healthcare industry. UNMC China works closely with the University of Nebraska Medical Center to increase the number of students, faculty, and postgraduate transfers between UNMC and medical universities of China. The China Scholarship Council often contributes to the process making these transfers more affordable and accessible.
Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center
On May 7, 2013, UNMC broke ground on the Fred & Pamela Buffet Cancer Center, a $323 million building project — the largest project in the 144-year history of
the University of Nebraska. The facility is expected to fully plant UNMC’s cancer research as the clear leader in the region and among the national elite.
Projected for completion in 2016, the building will be divided into 252,000 square feet of research facilities and 325,000 square feet for a clinical outpatient treatment facility and a 108-bed inpatient hospital. Nearly 100 labs will be dedicated to researching a multitude of cancers, including breast, brain, pancreatic, prostate and lung cancers.
