The Phoenix Center, a National Center for Protein Sciences, is a newly established, publicly funded research center. Located in a new, dedicated building in the Zhongguancun Life Science Park in Beijing, the Phoenix Center will employ up to 500 staff and students dedicated to research in protein biology and chemistry, and ultimately to the improvement of human health and economic welfare.

The Phoenix center combines research space, accommodation for students and visitors, and excellent communication facilities in a single, purpose-built building at the entrance to the Zhongguancun Life Science Park.
