The school is enlisted amongst the first national bases for teaching and research in basic sciences. Its Demonstration Center for Experiment Teaching was ranked No. 1 in the first national assessment of Experiment Teaching Center for Excellence launched in 2005. Five of the foundation chemistry courses were recognized as the Nationally Excellent Courses. Two teaching contingents have been selected as the State Teaching Contingents by the Ministry of Education. The school has received more than 30 national and provincial teaching awards and many other honorary titles. The school recruits about 150 undergraduate and 270 graduate students each year.
Since 2010, the school has received more than 200 grants from the National Natural Science Foundation of China. Among them 1 is a national key project for scientific instruments development, 2 projects for creative research groups, 16 key projects and 1 major project, 4 distinguished young scholar award projects, 5 excellent youth scholar award projects, and 68 grants from the Ministry of Science and Technology of China and Jiangsu Province.
The annual research funds for the school have reached about 140 million yuan. According to the statistics of the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI), the number of papers published by the faculty of the school and their total citation are among the top 1‰ in the global research institutions, respectively ranking at the 16th and 28th. These figures put the school on the top of the list of the universities in mainland China.
Due to its excellent achievements, the school was awarded, in the last decade, 3 second prizes of the National Natural Sciences, 1 second prize of National Science and Technology Progress, 10 first prizes of ministerial and provincial awards.
