A three-dimensional teaching case was constructed using "glucose" to connect the knowledge points in life science. In this case, the metabolic balance associated with glucose was firstly introduced, and then the digestion, absorption and molecular transport of glucose were discussed. Furthermore, the cause of diabetes and the detection principles of blood glucose were explained. In addition, the noninvasive diagnostic technique and new frontier of molecular diagnosis were represented. A series of "glucose" related research topics were integrated from macro to micro, from disease to health, from life application to scientific research frontier. This "glucose" three-dimensional teaching case was built and applied in the teaching of chemistry and life related knowledge, and it might be helpful to the undergraduates' research and innovation thinking training.

Key words: Three-dimensional teaching case, Innovative thinking, Glucose
