Fudan University is one of the first universities to establish Macromolecular Science Education and Research Center (established in 1958) in China, and is among the first institutes to award Master, Ph.D. degrees and postdoctoral positions in Macromolecular Chemistry and Physics. In April 1993, the department was established as an independent department, and the Research Institute of Macromolecular Science was established in Fudan University.
The department currently hosts 75 faculties and staffs, among which there are 50 faculties (32 professors, 15 associate professors, 3 lecturers), 15 laboratory technicians, and 10 administration staffs.
We lead state-of- the-art research in the fields of polymer condensed matter physics, macromolecular self-assembly, natural and biomacromolecules, and energy polymer materials, etc., and have made wide spread impact globally.
The department has 455 current students and has developed systematic cultivation plan for undergraduates, academic/professional master and Ph.D. students.
