Institute of Population Research, Peking University

The Institute of Population Research, Peking University (IPRPKU), is a research organization with teaching and training functions. It has study programs that trains students leading to the Master's and the PhD degrees.

Formerly a population research unit created in 1979 in the Department of Economics, IPRPKU was established with the approval of the Ministry of Education and began to accept students seeking the Master's degree in population studies in 1984 and the PhD degree in 1991. By 2004, the Institute has trained 138 students receiving the Master's degree including 21 foreign students and 40 students receiving the PhD degree.

In 1992, with financial supports from the United Nations Population Fund and the World Health Organization (WHO), the Institute introduced a program that trained foreign students to obtain the Master degree in population studies. In Asia, only three countries have similar training programs. The Institute is a sub-unit of the Peking University Social Sciences Post-Doctoral Mobile System and accepts post-doctoral fellows to work in the Institute.

In 1991, IPRPKU was named by the World Health Organization as a WHO Collaborating Center on Reproductive Health and Population Science.

In 2000, the Institute became the Principal Scientist Supporting Unit of the China Birth Defects Intervention Program.

In 2002, the Institute became the Principal Scientist Unit of the China Genetic and Environmental Control Studies on Birth Defects of the National Basic Research and Development Project (the "973" Project).

In 2003, the Peking University Institute for Ageing Study was established in the IPRPKU.
