The State Key Laboratory of Advanced Design and Manufacturing for Vehicle Body (ADMVB) was approved to be set up in September of 2006 by the Ministry of Science and Technology of China. Affiliated with Hunan University, ADMVB is one of the important research bases supported by national 211 Project and 985 Project for top-priority investment and construction.
 
The main research directions are vehicle styling and aerodynamics, design and optimization of vehicle structure, theory of vehicle CAE and its applications, vehicle safety and human body injury biomechanics, material and manufacturing for vehicle body. ADMVB focuses on the motif of the automobile safety, energy conservation and environmental protection. In order to improve Chinese independent development ability of automobile product and the international competitive power, emphasis is placed on the original and systematic research to develop the key basic theory and technology of design and manufacturing of vehicle body.
 
Now ADMVB covers an area of 5,000 square meters in Hunan University and holds an innovation and experiment base of 10,000 square meters in Langli Industry Park of Changsha city. ADMVB has been furnished with various advanced equipments and instruments and owned a variety of commercial software as well as some professional software with self-owned intellectual property. The laboratory has undertaken a wide range of research programs including various key projects from state, ministries and provinces. The laboratory won various awards including one first class National Award for Science and Technology Progress and one second-class National Award for Science and Technology Progress.
 
The State Key Laboratory of Chemo/Biosensing and Chemometrics
 
With the approval from Ministry of Science and Technology of China, The State Key Laboratory of Chemo/Biosensing and Chemometrics, was set up at Hunan University in July of 2001.
 
The major research areas of the laboratory include nanometer and molecule scale bioanalysis, chemo/biosensing technologies, new detection techniques in life science as well as chemometrics. Over 300 important projects from the national and the province governments have been undertaken or accomplished at the laboratory. More than 600 papers are included in SCI in the past five years from the laboratory. The laboratory has also obtained many first-class research achievements, including the second-class National Natural Science Prize, the third class National Natural Science Prize, the fourth class National Natural Science and Technology Progress Prize as well as numerous Science and Technology Progress Prizes from Ministry of Education and Hunan Province.
