Editor’s note: Walking in the Qianhu Campus of Nanchang University, we must have seen the name of “Pan Jiluan”, maybe it is from “Jiluan Shuyuan” on the west of Students Dormitory1, perhaps the inscriptions of “School of Mechatronics Engineering” and “School of Materials Science and Engineering” beside Wusi Middle Avenue, perhaps the “Jiluan Road” right of the Zhengqi Square... ... They are all from the former president and present honorary president of Nanchang University - academician Pan Jiluan. This year he is 90 years old. On December 24, our school held a series of activities to celebrate his birthday.

In the morning of December 24, academic lecture and the 16th session of “Qianhu Forum”, one of the series of activities celebrating the 90th birthday of academician Pan Jiluan, was held on Qianhu campus.

Ninety-year-old Pan Jiluan has been struggling in the scientific research front, he combined with the ongoing research projects, talked from the nuclear power plant content system, introduced the “development and welding of one million kilowatts of nuclear power turbine low-pressure rotor”. During the lecture, Academician Pan repeatedly stressed the importance of careful experiments. In the face of the questions raised by the students, he stuck to stand up to answer questions with smile. Our old president is so amiable.
