As an innovative platform of female pelvic floor disorders research, the Beijing Key Laboratory of Female Pelvic Floor Disorders is initiated by the Peking University People’s Hospital, focusing on the pathogenesis, individualized evaluation method and new treatment materials of female pelvic floor disorders. The research on pelvic floor disorders has a history of over 10 years in the Peking University People's Hospital. In 2002, the Peking University People’s Hospital was the first to carry out the diagnosis and treatment of female pelvic disorders in China; in 2011, the Center for Pelvic Floor Disorders was established; in 2015, the Peking University People’s Hospital won two achievement awards in the prophylaxis of female pelvic floor disorders; in December 2016, the Beijing Key Laboratory of Female Pelvic Floor Disorders was established; in 2017, the Chinese Female Pelvic Floor Disorders Control Project Quality Control Center was established; and also in 2017, the Peking University Health Science Center Female Pelvic Floor Disorders Research Center was established.
Research Interests and Research Directions:
Research interests: mainly focus on female pelvic floor disorders, including pelvic organ prolapse, lower urinary tract symptoms, intestinal dysfunction, perineal pain, sexual dysfunction and so on. We have studied in multiple aspects such as risk factors, pathogenesis, evaluation methods, and individualized treatment. Meanwhile, we have integrated multiple clinical and basic disciplines, including gynecology, urology, gastrointestinal surgery, gastroenterology, pain management, psychiatry & psychology, magnetic resonance imaging center, materials chemistry, and tissue engineering.
Main research directions: 1. Etiological research; 2. Together with MRI and tissue engineering researches, we are dedicated in investigating the pathogenesis of female pelvic floor disorders and the individualized disease evaluation, so as to provide the foundation for precision medicine; 3. We have developed our own intellectual property right of a pelvic floor tissue engineering mesh which makes up the domestic blank. It aims to solve the problems of costs and complications caused by the current meshes. The manufacturing method of this pelvic floor mesh has obtained the national invention patent.
Undertaking the basic study on pelvic floor disorders, the Beijing Key Laboratory of Female Pelvic Floor Disorders has full-time laboratory staff and graduated students to engage in the scientific research. We have a powerful technical team, including 6 doctoral advisors, 2 researchers, and 13 academic committee members. We have well-equipped laboratories with reasonable lay-out and strong scientific research atmosphere.
Taking the cross-merging advantages of multi-disciplines such as material chemistry, tissue engineering, and 3D imaging, our laboratory has developed our own intellectual property right of a pelvic floor tissue engineering mesh and has explored the pathogenesis of pelvic floor disorders.
2015 Comprehensive evaluation and multidisciplinary diagnosis and treatment of female pelvic floor dysfunction and its application, Science Research Famous Achievement Award in Higher Institution, Second Prize
2015 The experimental and clinical studies of female genital organ plasty based on the functional reconstruction, Chinese Association of Plastics and Aesthetics, Science and Technology Award, Innovation Award
2015 Professor Wang Jianliu won the title of Scientific Chinese “People of the Year”.
2017 The Chinese Female Pelvic Dysfunction Control Project, Chinese Preventive Medicine Association, Advanced Unit Award; Professor Wang Jianliu won the Outstanding Contribution Award; Professor Yang Xin and Professor Sun Xiuli won the Outstanding Individual Award; Physician An Fang won the Outstanding Paper Award.
Achievements and Contributions:
We are supported by the National Health and Family Planning Commission of the People’s Republic of China Key Clinical Project, Capital Foundation of Medical Developments Key Project, Specialized Research Fund for the Doctoral Program of Higher Education, Peking University Advanced Interdisciplinary Research Project, Peking University Project 985 Phase III Clinical Hospital Cooperation Special Project, Chinese Preventive Medicine Association Special Fund, Beijing Municipal Science & Technology Commission Major Research Project, National Natural Science Foundation and so on. In the past three years, we have published 13 books and more than 50 relevant papers; meanwhile, we have achieved 3 Technology Achievement Awards and one invention patent.
Through years of clinical and scientific researches, we have developed the multidisciplinary diagnosis and treatment model of female pelvic disorders and the individualized disease evaluation and prediction model, which significantly improved the post-operative success rate, reduced operative complications, saved medical resources, and improved the quality of medical care. A new type of tissue engineering mesh with our own intellectual property right is expected to be used in the clinical practice.
