In order to financially support our research and experiments, we planned to hold two fundraising events at XuHui Central hospital and Lujiazui. We’ve ordered and made our own products including notebooks, pens, t-shirts and napkins with logo designed by our teammate. We also held a talent show at Lujiazui where every member got the chance to contribute. Our show lasted for 2 hours and we had various performances like singing, guitar and piano playing. At the end of our event we had raised a sum of ¥1.5 K from over 100 individuals. All the money will be donated to Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Sciences, which provided us with laboratory equipment and instructions to help us with producing our enzyme.
The Chinese Academy of Sciences was established in November 1949. It is the highest academic institution in China's natural sciences, the highest scientific and technological advisory body, and the comprehensive research and development center for natural sciences and high technology.
