Time flying, the Beijing Neurosurgical Institute , founded in 1960 and the earliest of the kind in China, has been set up for 50 years. It has been sharing the common fate with the nation and its people all along from the beginning. Since ZHAO Yi Cheng, the first director of the institute, died of illness in 1974, WANG Zhong Cheng succeeded. Benefitting from the reform and open-up policies, the institute develops very quickly. Now it has become an organic whole of scientific research, teaching and clinical application, enjoying great international fame. In 1982, it was appointed “Neuroscience Research and Training Centre of WHO” by WHO, and “National Centre for Neurosurgery” by National Ministry of Public Health. In 1997, it became “Neuroscience Institute of Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences”; in 2004, under the approval of the Ministry of Public Health, it established “Beijing Academy of Neurosurgery”; in 2007, a training base of endoscope technique of the Ministry of Public Health was founded here.

Academically based on Tian Tan Hospital, the institute insists on the combination of scientific research and clinical practice, contributing great to both public health of capital residents and the development of neurosurgery sciences. Under the leadership of WANG Zhong Cheng, a number of qualified neurosurgery researchers undertake state- and province-level key research projects, making in-depth and systematic study on subjects such as cerebrovascular disease, brain tumor, plasticity of nerve system, functional neurosurgery, endoscope neurosurgery, basicranial neurosurgery and craniocerebral injury from the angle of neuro-electrophysiology, neurochemibology, molecular biology, neuropathology, neuroradiology, etc. Some of the research findings have reached advanced international standards.

For the whole staff, there are 173 people, 61 out of which have high professional title, 48 with intermediate professional title, 36 with elementary academic title, 23 with doctor degree, and 13 with master degree. Academic leaders amount to 25, directing research respectively on neurosurgery, neuroimaging, biology, health statistics and epidemiology, cytobiology, neuropathology, patho- physiology, neurology, public health and preventive medicine.

The institute is equipped with 19 basic research offices, 5 clinical research offices and 2 preventive research offices, which are “National Research Office on Prevention and Treatment of Cerebrovascular Disease” and “Beijing Directing Office on Prevention and Treatment of Cerebrovascular Disease”. Another 3 social bodies are Beijing Wang Zhong Cheng Medical Foundation, Chinese Neurosurgery Journal newsroom, and Neurosurgery Branch of Chinese Doctor Association. There are also 2 doctor stations,6 master stations and 1 mobile station for post-doctors.

Efforts make splendidness. In the 50 years, especially the 30 years of reform and open-up, the institute has acquired outstanding recordings, which is the result of painstaking efforts, unselfish devotion, concerted striving and innovative cultivation of generations.
