However, realizing independent dual-tunability remains challenging and requires more efforts. In this paper, we present an active metasurface where the magnitude and frequency of the resonant absorption can be continuously and independently tuned through application of voltage biases. Such a dual-tunability is accomplished at microwave frequencies by combining a varactor-loaded high-impedance surface and a graphene-based sandwich structure. By electrically controlling the Fermi energy of graphene and the capacitance of varactor diodes, we experimentally desmonstrate the independent shifting of the working frequency from 3.41 to 4.55 GHz and tuning of the reflection amplitude between -3 and -30 dB, which is in excellent agreement with full-wave numerical simulations. We further employed an equivalent lumped circuit model to elucidate the mechanism of the dual-tunability resulting from the graphene-based sandwich structure and the active high-impedance surface. We speculate that such a dual-tunability scheme can be potentially extended to terahertz and optical regimes by employing different active/dynamical tuning methods and materials integration, thereby enabling a variety of practical applications.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>Tue, 07 Jan 2020 09:38:11 +0000 Opening Ceremony of 2019 ICCI ART VALLEY Exhibition of SJTU<p>How to cultivate art management talents with international vision, interdisciplinary background and rich industrial practice? How to understand "Seek conformity but no uniformity" in Chinese and western art? How to interpret the art topic "the storm in the teacup"? The morning of November 29 witnessed a grand opening of the Art exhibition "Somewhere in Time ", organized by USC-SJTU Institute of Cultural and Creative Industry of Shanghai Jiao Tong University and co-sponsored by Spring Art Museum. Six world-famous international Art scholars were invited by ICCI Art Valley of Shanghai Jiao Tong University to attend the opening ceremony. More than 100 art teachers and students, visiting art scholars, curators and collectors in Shanghai attended the opening ceremony. An academic seminar on Chinese and western art was held during the same period which focused on the "Three Key Questions Regarding Art"-- what the artist's mission is, what the direction of art education is, and where the future of art belongs. Established artists Sun Liang, Wu Liang, Zhao Song, Li Xiaofeng, Liao Liao and other well-known artists and art critics participated in the discussion.</p> <p><img src="/assets/6897/1_normal.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="427" /></p> <p><img src="/assets/6899/2_normal.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="360" /></p> <p><strong>60 Days of Creation by International Resident Art Scholars, Somewhere In Time Art Exhibitions Emphasized Seek Conformity But No Uniformity</strong></p> <p>On the basis of the successful launching of the first Somewhere in Time ICCI Art Valley exhibition at USC-SJTU Institute of Cultural and Creative Industry of Shanghai Jiao Tong University last year, the second Somewhere in Time Art Exhibition of 2019 received a bigger welcome and success. Somewhere in Time Art Exhibition of 2019 focused on the MFA program of ICCI, and thus 6 scholars with international art education background were invited, who were Chinese art laboratory project managers and Harvard University postdoctoral researcher YU Gan, Germany Keso Arts College professor YANG Qi, a Spanish artist Juan OLIVARES, Russian contemporary abstract artist Andrey VOLKOV, Austria Haydn music professor Matthias ADENSAMER, Mary o 'Malley, graduate from Royal College of Art.</p> <p><img src="/assets/6900/3_normal.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="427" /></p> <p>Weimin ZHANG, dean of USC-SJTU Institute of Cultural and Creative Industry of Shanghai Jiao Tong University and curator of the exhibition, said that the six artists who participated in the exhibition were helping to communicate between the Chinese and western arts. The artists were established in various forms of art, and used their unique vision and insight to tell new thoughts and new visions with real life existence and strong expression of desire. They have integrated the ultimate "beauty" with painting, music and the world, where they combined the different understandings of "beauty" in China and the west, the different information from ancient to modern times, and the different stages of life. All of these became a part of their artistic lives.</p> <p><strong>USC-SJTU Institute of Cultural and Creative Industry of Shanghai Jiao Tong University Launched a MFA Program to Explore a New Training Mode of Art Talents</strong></p> <p>Since its establishment nearly five years ago, USC-SJTU Institute of Cultural and Creative Industry of Shanghai Jiao Tong University has been adhering to the teaching philosophy of "Internationalization, Interdisciplinary and Industry-Orientation" and taking "Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Creativity" as its training goal. Created by USC-SJTU Institute of Cultural and Creative Industry of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, ICCI Art Valley aimed to carry out art education practice with cultural and creative thinking, innovate the cultivation mode of art management talents in comprehensive universities, improve the level of public artistic literacy, and build an art ecosystem featured by the integrated development of culture industry, industry and education.</p> <p><img src="/assets/6901/4_normal.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="360" /></p> <p>In conjunction with the MFA program, six students of USC-SJTU Institute of Cultural and Creative Industry of Shanghai Jiao Tong University were recruited as project directors to participate in a series of practical activities such as work creation, curation, exhibition arrangement, art performance and art lecture. The students also write the script, tracked the whole process of the artist's creation, hired a film and television instructor, and eventually created an artistic creation education documentary.</p> <p><img src="/assets/6902/5_normal.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="427" /></p> <p>"An excellent art manager should not only have a solid artistic aesthetic sense, and an understanding of the intention of the audience, but also he needs to know how to use technology to enable the expression of artistic content. That is, how to accurately promote the art market, and how to achieve the commercial success." Weimin ZHANG also said, "With the arrival of the digital art wave, art management practitioners must have a global industrial vision, understand the means of art technology, and understand the operation of the art market. This is where comprehensive universities boasting the inherent advantages with innovative art management education."</p> <p>Next year marks the 5th anniversary of the establishment of USC-SJTU Institute of Cultural and Creative Industry of Shanghai Jiao Tong University. MFA will start its recruitment of the first class of MFA students. It is believed that USC-SJTU Institute of Cultural and Creative Industry of Shanghai Jiao Tong University will offer more practice-based courses and exhibitions for its MFA students.</p> <p><strong>Art Scholars Promoted All-Round Public Interaction and Enhanced Public Aesthetics of Public Art</strong></p> <p>Social service is the natural mission of every university and every scholar. In addition to the art creation and art education in the ivory tower, resident art scholars of ICCI Art Valley, aside from focusing on their creations, also participated in a series of unique cultural and social public art activities.</p> <p><img src="/assets/6903/6_normal.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="427" /></p> <p>The artists had their studios open to the public art. They also conducted art workshops on the 2nd Yangtze International Cultural Expo. They also participated in the International Conference on Cooperation and Development of Global Cultural and Creative Industries. Moreover, they also cooperated with Shanghai culture enterprise, online platforms, and delivered online lectures. Wu fan, director of the resident program for international art scholars and a member of teaching faculty at USC-SJTU Institute of Cultural and Creative Industry of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, said the art of the future must be integrated, transboundary and public-oriented. 2019 "ICCI ART VALLEY" project carried out many public lecture activities, such as the Influence of Aesthetic Education to the Masses, Contemporary ART-- the Value of Social Manifestation ff "Abstraction". Every lecture received great welcome and feedback, which reflected that the audiences' curiosity and thirst for knowledge was growing, and the artistic atmosphere and artistic cultivation prospered.</p> <p><img src="/assets/6904/7_normal.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="427" /></p> <p>Gan YU, a representative of art scholars, project manager and postdoctoral researcher of the Chinese art laboratory of Harvard University, said that he was impressed by the &nbsp;culture and creativity of USC-SJTU Institute of Cultural and Creative Industry of Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

In this paper, we propose and analyze cache-based content delivery in a three-tier heterogeneous network (HetNet), where base stations (BSs), relays, and device-to-device (D2D) pairs are included. We advocate proactively caching popular content in the relays and parts of the users with caching ability when the network is off-peak. The cached content can be reused for frequent access to offload the cellular network traffic. The node locations are first modeled as mutually independent Poisson point processes (PPPs) and the corresponding content access protocol is developed. The average ergodic rate and outage probability in the downlink are then analyzed theoretically. We further derive the throughput and the delay based on the multiclass processor-sharing queue model and the continuous-time Markov process. According to the critical condition of the steady state in the HetNet, the maximum traffic load and the global throughput gain are investigated. Moreover, impacts of some key network characteristics, e.g., the heterogeneity of multimedia contents, node densities, and the limited caching capacities, on the system performance are elaborated on to provide valuable insight.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Link of paper:</p> <p><a ></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Translated by Huang Yiqing&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Reviewed by Wang Bingyu</p>Tue, 17 Dec 2019 08:38:59 +0000 SJTU Young Associate Ge Tianshu Selected For Global Energy Prize International Youth Program<p>On December 12th the Global Energy Association (GEA) officially announced the selected awardees of 2019 Global Energy Awards International Youth Program.

This work reports an effective and simple way to eliminate energy transfer in multicolor quantum dots (QDs)‐encoded microbeads by incorporating tetrapod CdSe/CdS QDs with a large Stokes shift (about 180 nm). Exploiting this unique feature enables the facile realization of a theoretical 7 &times; 7‐1 barcoding matrix combining two colors and seven intensity levels. As such, microbeads containing tetrapod CdSe/CdS QDs are demonstrated to possess a powerful encoding capacity which allows for precise barcode design. The ability of the Shirasu porous glass membrane emulsification method to easily control microbead size facilitates the establishment of a 3D barcode library of 144 distinguishable barcodes, indicating the enormous potential to enable large‐scale multiplexed detection. Moreover, when applied for the multiplexed detection of five common allergens, these barcodes exhibit superior detection performance (limit of detection: 0.01&ndash;0.02 IU mL</span><span>&minus;</span><span>1) for both spiked and patient serum samples. Therefore, this new coding strategy helps to expand barcoding capacity while simultaneously reducing the technical and economic barriers to the optical encoding of microbeads for high‐throughput multiplexed detection.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span>Link of paper: </span><a ><span></span></a><span></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>Tue, 10 Dec 2019 05:56:05 +0000 Goldsmiths Deputy Vice Chancellor Visited SJTU<p>On the afternoon of Nov. 29, 2019, SJTU Vice President Xu Xuemin met with Mark d&rsquo; Inverno, <a name="OLE_LINK10"></a><a name="OLE_LINK9">Deputy Vice Chancellor</a> (in charge of international affairs) of <a name="OLE_LINK6"></a><a name="OLE_LINK5"></a><a >Goldsmiths, University of London</a><a name="OLE_LINK8"></a><a name="OLE_LINK7"></a>, and his companions.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p> <p class="MsoNormal">Xu Xuemin welcomed Mark d&rsquo; Inverno and his companions.

In more than 20 years, it has trained more than 600 business elites, made contributions to the education and management cause of Singapore. It has also laid a solid foundation for exploring the way of overseas education for Chinese universities.</p> <p>In November 2001, Shanghai Jiao Tong University signed an agreement with Nanyang Technological University (NTU) of Singapore. Shanghai Jiao Tong University moved its Singapore teaching point to NTU. In October 2002, SJTU established its "Singapore Graduate School of Shanghai Jiao Tong University".

Since 2002, nearly 400 students from different countries and industries with diverse backgrounds have obtained the master's degree of Business Administration issued by SJTU. The joint program not only enhanced academic exchanges between the two universities, but also cultivated a group of high-level and practical professionals for trade and economic development between China and Singapore, and thus became the link of economic, trade and cultural exchanges between the two countries. The experience accumulated through this joint program is of great significance to the international development strategy of Shanghai Jiao Tong University and lays a solid foundation for Chinese universities to explore international education.</p> <p>In addition to MBA education, ACEM has also launched its EMBA education and non-degree executive education programs in Singapore, too.</p>Fri, 29 Nov 2019 07:10:44 +0000 UCL President Michael Arthur Led Delegation to SJTU<p>On November 26, 2019, Professor Michael Arthur, President of University College London, led a delegation to Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

The research identified an important microtubular regulatory protein, OsIQD14, which regulates the formation and seed morphology of the psyatory cells by influencing the dynamic changes of the microtube. This study not only identifies an important gene that regulates the shape of rice shell cells and then affects the grain shape of rice, but also shows that regulating the dynamic change and arrangement of microtubes can be an important target for rice grain control, providing a new strategy for crop breeding.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p> <p><img src="/assets/6805/20191025_080216_756_normal.png" alt="" width="640" height="262" /></p> <p class="MsoNormal">Dr. Yang Baojun of the Shanghai Institute of Plant Inglis/VIB of the Chinese Academy of Sciences is the first author of the paper.

As plants continuously adapt to ever‐changing environmental conditions, multiple environmental and developmental inputs need to be translated into changes of the MT cytoskeleton. Here, we identify and functionally characterize an auxin‐inducible and MT‐localized protein OsIQ67‐DOMAIN14 (OsIQD14), which is highly expressed in rice seed hull cells. We show that while deficiency of OsIQD14 results in short and wide seeds and increases overall yield, overexpression leads to narrow and long seeds, caused by changed MT alignment. We further show that OsIQD14‐mediated MT reordering is regulated by specifically affecting MT dynamics, and ectopic expression of OsIQD14 in Arabidopsis could change the cell shape both in pavement cells and hypocotyl cells. Additionally, OsIQD14 activity is tightly controlled by calmodulin proteins, providing an alternative way to modify the OsIQD14 activity. Our results indicate that OsIQD14 acts as a key factor in regulating MT rearrangements in rice hull cells and hence the grain shape, and allows effective local cell shape manipulation to improve the rice yield trait.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span class="MsoHyperlink">Translated by Iga Kowalewska</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span class="MsoHyperlink">Reviewed by Wang Bingyu</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>Tue, 12 Nov 2019 07:05:12 +0000 Orsay Museum Curator Visited SJTU<p>On the evening of Nov. 1st, the curator of the <a >Orsay Museum</a> Laurence des Cars visited Shanghai Jiao Tong University and became the 9th lecturer of the Wenbo lecture hall.

At regions surrounding grain boundaries, the majority of activated dislocation slip traces were found to form in pairs across grain boundary, and the basal-to-basal (B-B) slip pair is the dominant type. Strain accommodation around the grain boundary interfaces is affected by both Schmid factor in the adjacent grains and the m&rsquo; value between these main slip systems. A mk value was proposed in this paper as the maximum value of the product of the Schmid factor and the m&rsquo; value of the adjacent grains to measure strain accommodation around the grain boundary interface, where a higher mk value would mean a larger local strain. It is suggested that the overall ductility of a Mg alloy could be evaluated by measuring its average mk value. As an evidence, the Mg-Gd-Y alloy tubes with higher mk value generally show higher elongations during tensile tests in this study.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span>&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span>Translated by Zhang Qianqian</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span>Reviewed by Wang Bingyu</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>Sun, 04 Aug 2019 14:00:00 +0000 Otago University Deputy Vice-Chancellor Helen Nicholson Visited SJTU<p>On the afternoon of July 18, Helen Nicholson, Deputy Vice-Chancellor from the University of Otago, New Zealand visited SJTU.

Second, how to stick to management boundaries. In their future work, students should do their best in their own positions and but also learn to be flexible about boundaries: do more than required, cooperate with others and work together as one. Third, how to stick to moral boundaries.

To circumvent the difficulty, a prevalent viewpoint simplifies the neuronal morphology as a point representing the soma, and the excitatory and inhibitory synaptic currents originated from the dendrites are treated as linearly summed at the soma. Despite its extensive applications, the validity of the synaptic current description remains unclear, and the existing point neuron framework fails to characterize the spatiotemporal aspects of dendritic integration supporting specific computations. Using electrophysiological experiments, realistic neuronal simulations, and theoretical analyses, we demonstrate that the traditional assumption of linear summation of synaptic currents is oversimplified and underestimates the inhibition effect. We then derive a form of synaptic integration current within the point neuron framework to capture dendritic effects. In the derived form, the interaction between each pair of synaptic inputs on the dendrites can be reliably parameterized by a single coefficient, suggesting the inherent low-dimensional structure of dendritic integration. We further generalize the form of synaptic integration current to capture the spatiotemporal interactions among multiple synaptic inputs and show that a point neuron model with the synaptic integration current incorporated possesses the computational ability of a spatial neuron with dendrites, including direction selectivity, coincidence detection, logical operation, and a bilinear dendritic integration rule discovered in experiment. Our work amends the modeling of synaptic inputs and improves the computational power of a modeling neuron within the point neuron framework.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Translated by Iga Kowalewska &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Reviewed by Wang Bingyu</p>Thu, 18 Jul 2019 14:15:35 +0000 President of University of Queensland Visited SJTU<p>On the morning of July 3rd, a delegation led by President Peter H&oslash;j from the University of Queensland (UQ), Australia visited SJTU.

In this study, we show that SUMO1/sentrin specific peptidase 1 (SENP1) regulates the development and function of MDSC. SENP1 deficiency in myeloid cells promoted MDSC expansion in bone marrow, spleen, and other organs. Senp1-/- MDSC showed stronger immune-suppressive activity than Senp1+/+ MDSC ; we observed no defects in the differentiation of myeloid precursor cell in Senp1-/- mice. Mechanistically, SENP1-mediated regulation of MDSC was dependent on STAT3 signaling. We identified CD45 as a specific STAT3 phosphatase in MDSC. CD45 was SUMOylated in MDSC and SENP1 could de-conjugate SUMOylated CD45.

The long lifetime and unique spin properties of the dark exciton provide exciting opportunities to explore light-matter interactions beyond electric dipole transitions. Here we demonstrate that the coupling of the dark exciton and an optically silent chiral phonon enables the intrinsic photoluminescence of the dark-exciton replica in monolayer WSe2. Gate and magnetic-field dependent PL measurements unveil a circularly-polarized replica peak located below the dark exciton by 21.6&thinsp;meV, equal to E&Prime; phonon energy from Se vibrations. First-principles calculations show that the exciton-phonon interaction selectively couples the spin-forbidden dark exciton to the intravalley spin-allowed bright exciton, permitting the simultaneous emission of a chiral phonon and a circularly-polarized photon.

In this study, the authors developed the PT-IC-seq technique, based on iodine-induced selective cleavage at PT sites and high-throughput next generation sequencing, as a mean to quantitatively characterizing the genomic landscape of PT modifications. Using PT-IC-seq they foud that most PT sites are partially modified at a lower PT frequency (&lt; 5%) in E. coli B7A and Salmonella enterica serovar Cerro 87, and both show a heterogeneity pattern of PT modification similar to those of the typical methylation modification. Combining the iodine-induced cleavage and absolute quantification by droplet digital PCR, the authors developed the PT-IC-ddPCR technique to further measure the PT modification level. Consistent with the PT-IC-seq measurements, PT-IC-ddPCR analysis confirmed the lower PT frequency in E. coli B7A. These results have demonstrated the heterogeneity of PT modification in the bacterial population, and will open the door to understanding biology of this novel DNA modification.</p> <p>Jinli Li, Yi Chen, Tao Zheng and Lingxin Kong are co-first authors of the paper.

The research finding has been published in the internationally renowned academic journal the <em>Nano Energy</em> (SCI IF13.12) entitled <a ><em>Piezoelectric thin film on glass fiber fabric with structural hierarchy: An approach to high-performance, superflexible,cost-effective, and large-scale nanogenerators</em></a><em>.</em></p> <p><em><img src="/assets/6393/20190320_062707_705_normal.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="346" /></em></p> <p>This work provides a new perspective to fabricate high performance, super-flexible, cost-effective and large-scale nanogenerators and flexible sensors. It also has very promising application in the field of wearable electronic devices. He Sibo, a master student of SJTU, and Dong Wen, a postdoctor research fellow in University of Warwick are the first authors of this paper, Prof. Guo Yiping is the corresponding author and SJTU is the first working unit. Prof. Guo and his intelligent and energy composites research team have long been committed to the research and application of ferroelectric/piezoelectric functional composites, energy and catalytic materials. The research word is funded by the National Science Foundation of China (No. 11474199 and 51332009).</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Abstract</p> <p>Harvesting mechanical energy using piezoelectric nanogenerator (PENG) to power portable/wearable electronic devices is a promising technology in the age of artificial intelligence. However, high-performance PENGs have often reached with either poor durability, or limited flexibility, or high cost. Here, we select glass fiber fabric (GFF) substrate as a new material platform to enable one-step and large-scale fabrication of high-performance, superflexible PENG based on coherently grown Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O3 thin films via a simple dipping method. With &sim;100 nm thick piezoelectric film coated on the 3.5 cm &times; 1.5  cm scale fabric, this new material platform was measured to show efficient energy harvesting (&sim;60 V, &sim;500 nA) and multi-mode (bending and pressing) energy harvesting ability with largest bending angle of 180&deg;. An 8 cm &times; 8  cm scale PENG can simultaneously light up 20 commercial green LEDs successfully. Moreover, the PENG based on the new material platform clearly shows a linear change of current/voltage as a function of strain/load, which is promising to be used as self-powered mechanical sensor as well. This work provides a new perspective to fabricate high performance, superflexible, cost-effective and large-scale nanogenerators and thus may enable rapid application in multi-energy harvesters, sensors, battery-free electronic devices.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Translated by Liu Yixuan</p> <p>Reviewed by Wang Bingyu</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>Mon, 25 Mar 2019 14:57:14 +0000 SJTU’s Discipline of Biology and Biochemistry Ranked top 1‰ in ESI Ranking<p>On March 14<sup>th</sup>, <a >Clarivate Analytics</a> updated ESI ranking of March, which demonstrated that <a href="/">Shanghai Jiao Tong University</a> moved up 1 notch to the 116th, compared to January.

The research titled "Production and Hadronic Decays of Higgs Bosons in Heavy-Ion Collisions"&nbsp; examines Higgs boson production and decay in heavy-ion collisions at the LHC and future colliders. Owing to the long lifetime of the Higgs boson, its hadronic decays may experience little or no screening from the hot and dense quark-gluon plasma, whereas jets from hard scattering processes and from decays of the electroweak gauge bosons and the top quark suffer significant energy loss.

Founded by Prof. ZHOU Bin and inscribed by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the organization dedicates to establish a bridge of communication for the diplomats and their children of the United Nations through calligraphy, whose beauty and artistic expressions can be shared beyond borders and ethnics, thus enhancing the friendship between the people of the world and promoting the peaceful development of the world.&nbsp;</p> <p><img src="/assets/6313/2_normal.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="427" /></p> <p>Yoo Soon-taek, wife of former UN Secretary-General Mr. Ban Ki-moon, unveiled the plaque with Ms. Jane Camblin, the President of the United Nations International School<br />As the Lifetime Chairman of the Junior United Nations of Calligraphy, Prof. Bin ZHOU goes to New York every year to organize activities for students in his spare time . This Spring Festival is the time to recruit new members. Youth from more than 100 countries gathered together and practiced writing the&nbsp; Chinese characters "春"(chun) and "福"(fu) with writing brushes. Prof. ZHOU Bin introduced the Chinese culture through calligraphy, which was a successful culture communication practice. On the spot, the exquisite "fu" calligraphy works by Roy Ye, Executive Chairman of "Junior United Nations of Calligraphy", spread the joy and attracted many Chinese calligraphy lovers.&nbsp;</p> <p><img src="/assets/6314/3_normal.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="427" /></p> <p>Celebrating the Chinese New Year by means of calligraphy has become a unique way for the United Nations International School to celebrate traditional Chinese festivals, which is also a meaningful attempt to share Chinese culture.<br />The United Nations International School is an international school for children of diplomats and United Nations officials from nearly 200 countries. More than 100 students from nearly 200 countries have been involved in Junior United Nations of Calligraphy, which has profound influence in international cultural exchanges in recent years. It acts as an platform, allowing the diplomats and their children to experience the charm of Chinese traditional culture through activities brimmed with Chinese elements. Those activities were well-received by ambassadors from various countries.<br />On the day of the activity, Prof. ZHOU Bin gave the students a lecture on Chinese culture with New Year's wishes in delightful atmosphere. Having been held for several years, the "World Peace Development and Calligraphy International Exchange - writing the character ''福" to welcome the Chinese New Year", is a branded project of the United Nations International School. It brings a beautiful vison of loving and peace expressed by Chinese people through the way of cultural exchanges.<br />&nbsp;<img src="/assets/6315/4_normal.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="427" /></p> <p>Former United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon couple and the students of the Junior United Nations of Calligraphy at the United Nations International School.<br />Ban Ki-moon, chairman of the Boao Forum for Asia, said: "It is meaningful to spread the Chinese calligraphy culture to young people. Prof. ZHOU Bin has been working hard on the significant international stage to spread Chinese culture and tell the story of China. In 2018, the four-volume textbook of Chinese Calligraphy Culture, "风调雨顺", written by Prof. Bin ZHOU, provided a perfect textbook for people around the world studying Chinese calligraphy and culture."<br />&nbsp;<img src="/assets/6316/5_normal.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="427" /><br />The international expression of Chinese cultural elements has always been the main theme of this series of activities. Over the years, Prof. Bin ZHOU has invited guests including Ana Larrea, the UN official from Spain, Arturo Guerrero, and American artist Lucas Perez to impart and spread Chinese calligraphy. By writing the Spring Festival couplets, making lanterns and writing Chinese characters "春" and "福" together, they expressed their personal understandings of Chinese festivals and customs in the form of traditional culture. In addition, the interactive calligraphy-teaching experience, which combined communications and emotions,&nbsp; encouraged people of different nationalities to participate, experience and understand Chinese culture, and feel the charisma of calligraphy and Chinese culture as well. Based on extensive practice, Prof. ZHOU Bin has developed a creative path for spreading the art of calligraphy as well as Chinese culture.</p>Mon, 18 Feb 2019 12:42:12 +0000 Author Profile Column of the Angewandte Chemie Introduced SJTU Professor Li Xinhao’s Work<p><em>The Angewandte Chemie</em> is maintaining its leading position among the General Chemistry journals.

It is to study the mechanical signal sensing and response mechanism of organisms, clarify the relationship between the mechanical and biological processes of organisms, and develop new curative and diagnostic techniques so as to forward the development of biomedicine.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Abstract</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Vascular remodeling is a common pathological process in cardiovascular diseases and includes changes in cell proliferation, apoptosis and differentiation as well as vascular homeostasis. Mechanical stresses, such as shear stress and cyclic stretch, play an important role in vascular remodeling. Vascular cells can sense the mechanical factors through cell membrane proteins, cytoskeletons and nuclear envelope proteins to initiate mechanotransduction, which involves intercellular signaling, gene expression, and protein expression to result in functional regulations. Non-coding RNAs, including microRNAs and long non-coding RNAs, are involved in the regulation of vascular remodeling processes. Mechanotransduction triggers a cascade reaction process through a complicated signaling network in cells. High-throughput technologies in combination with functional studies targeting some key hubs and bridging nodes of the network can enable the prioritization of potential targets for subsequent investigations of clinical translation. Vascular mechanobiology, as a new frontier field of biomechanics, searches for principles of stress-growth in vasculature to elucidate how mechanical factors induce biological effects that lead to vascular remodeling, with the goal of understanding the mechanical basis of the pathological mechanism of cardiovascular diseases at the cellular and molecular levels. Vascular mechanobiology will play a unique role in solving the key scientific problems of human physiology and disease, as well as generating important theoretical and clinical results.</p> <p>Read the article: <a ></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Translated by Iga Kowalewska&nbsp; Reviewed by Wang Bingyu</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>Sat, 26 Jan 2019 03:56:29 +0000 TDLI Held 13th Jiangmen Neutrino Experiment International Conference<p>From January 14<sup>th</sup> to 19<sup>th</sup>, the 13<sup>th</sup> Jiangmen Neutrino Experiment International Conference was held at Minhang Campus, <a href="/">Shanghai Jiao Tong University</a>.

Many new laboratory‐scale materials have been developed for photothermal desalination but the development of low‐cost, easy‐to‐manufacture, and scalable materials and systems that can convert solar irradiation into exploitable thermal energy in this context is still a significant challenge. This paper presents work on a geopolymer-biomass mesoporous carbon composite (GBMCC) device with mesoporous and macroporous structures for harvesting solar energy, which is then used in a device to generate water vapor with high efficiency using negative pressure, wind‐driven, steam generation. The GBMCC device gives water evaporation rates of 1.58 and 2.71 kg m-2 h-1 under 1 and 3 suns illumination, with the solar thermal conversion efficiency up to 84.95% and 67.6%, respectively. A remarkable, record high water vapor generation rate of 7.55 kg m-2 h-1 is achieved under 1 sun solar intensity at the wind speed of 3 m s-1. This is a key step forward todays efficient, sustainable and economical production of clean water from seawater or common wastewater with free solar energy.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Translated by Zhu Fengyan&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Reviewed by Wang Bingyu</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>Thu, 10 Jan 2019 08:16:49 +0000 3rd Young Teachers’ Teaching Competition of SJTU Held<p>On January 3<sup>rd</sup>, the third Young Teachers' Teaching Competition of <a href="/">Shanghai Jiao Tong University</a> was held at Minhang Campus, which was jointly held by Teaching Affairs of Party Committee, <a >Academic Affairs Office</a> and <a >Graduate School</a>.
