  1st postdoctoral research station set up in Tibet  

The General Hospital of the Tibet Military Command, specialized in research on acute mountain sickness (AMS), set up the region's first postdoctoral research station on May 20.

The Tibetan plateau is known for its harsh natural environments characterized by low pressure, coldness and low oxygen level. The prevention and treatment of various diseases caused by high altitude has been high on the research agenda of the region's medical institutions.

According to Li Suzhi, head of the hospital, the station will focus on the basic and clinical research concerning AMS surgery and the research and development of AMS medicines and hygeian equipment for high altitude environment.

The station will also cooperate with its counterparts in other Chinese regions and recruit medical workers for its research programs, Li said.
