Four academicians carefully listened to the introduction of Hu Wei and had a discussion on the coordinated relationship between the discipline construction and discipline development, the reform of the model to cultivate top-notch undergraduate students, attraction and cultivation of high-level talents and innovation of the mechanism for assessment and evaluation. The academicians said that after their inspection they felt the strong support from the autonomous region government and the university for the discipline of biology and saw the great achievements the discipline of biology has made with many years of development. They think that at present, the discipline of biology of IMU has a very strong development momentum and a clear discipline framework and development plan. Next, the academicians thought that the School of Life Sciences of IMU should stick to the aim to build the discipline of life sciences into the world-class discipline. And with the guidance of the Advisory Council of Development Strategies of IMU, the School of Life Sciences should focus on the strategic development of the country and social and economic development demand of Inner Mongolia, plan the position and level of the state key laboratory and understand clearly the question of “What is the problem and what can be done with the problem”. The School of Life Sciences should clearly know how the group of experts for “Double-First-Class” construction evaluation conducts its assessment, follow the specific requirements of the Ministry of Education and attach special importance to mandatory requirements for discipline development. The academicians pointed out that the discipline of biology of IMU should attach importance to the improvement of its own quality, give prominence to its unique characteristics, explore and find out new research object to boost the discipline development in the long run.

 

After hearing the advice of the academicians, Liu Zhiyu, secretary of IMU CPC Committee, expressed his thanks to four academicians and other experts and scholars for their advice on and analysis of the discipline of biology of IMU. Liu said that “Double-First-Class” construction is, in its own, demonstrative and guiding, and it is not only regarding the construction of a discipline but also concerning the development of the university. The secretary said that the advice given by the academicians precisely touched the deep-level problem of IMU and the School of Life Sciences should adjust the research ideas, further think about how the discipline should be positioned and how the discipline should be developed in a unique way and how the construction of the discipline of biology should be accelerated so as to promote the “Double-First-Class” construction of IMU and “Joint Building of IMU by the Ministry of Education and IMAR Government” and build as soon as possible IMU into a first-class university with its own characteristics.
