Guangdong Key Laboratory of Medical Biomechanics was founded in 1986. It was authorized to be the Key Laboratory of Medical Biomechanics of Chinese People’s Liberation Army in 1993. Since 2000, Trauma care research center of Guangdong was established based on this laboratory, along with 31 clinical scientific research basements, covering the major hospitals in Guangdong. Using basic research as guidance and closely connecting with clinical application, the laboratory has enhanced the entire level of trauma care in Guangdong. It was handed over to Guangdong Province along with the First Military Medical School as a whole. Then Guangdong Province Key Laboratory of Medical Biomechanics was founded, gaining support from the National 863 Project, National Natural Science Foundation of China, and key Research Project of Guangdong Province, etc. It has published nearly 100 high-grade articles including Spine, and developed cooperative relationship with nearly 500 organizations such as medical schools in major cities in mainland and Hongkong as well as many Department of Orthopedics of reputable hospitals, providing a high-level test platform of biomechanics which makes it a laboratory of biomechanics with certain popularity at home and abroad. In 2006, it was rated as "Excellent Key Laboratory of Guangdong” by Guangdong Science Department. At present, based on human anatomy, which is the national key disciplines of Southern Medical University, the laboratory has established the medical clinical anatomy, biomechanics, and digital medical research team.

Exchange and Communication
◆ Open projects and visiting scholar fund
Our laboratory is an open laboratory. Taking the advantage of key discipline special funding, we have set up 10 open funds with 30,000 yuan for each project that mainly focuses on the research of biological materials building, injury repair and so on. With the support of the fund, related researchers have awarded 1 Youth Program of National Natural Scientific Funding, and published 5 SCI papers and 10 papers on domestic core journals.
◆Mutual visit and communication
Researchers in the laboratory communicate a lot and actively participate in the academic events home and abroad. 10 researchers including Ouyang Jun, Li Jianyi etc have made presentations or reports of scientific research results during these international meetings. The laboratory also actively invites famous domestic and national scholars to come to our laboratory for communicate.
◆ Academic conference
National Tissue Engineering and Biomechanics Summit has been successfully held.
