For thousands of years, Chinese Medicine was used in the prevention and treatment of diseases, as well as for health maintenance through strengthening and enhancing normal body functions. To develop Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM)-based drugs, international and local researchers from institutions and industry are collaborating on raising the quality of pre-clinical and clinical CHM research, and transforming the results into pharmaceutical products for international markets.
Hong Kong has great potential to serve as a research hub for the modernization of Chinese Medicine, and achieve breakthroughs in disease treatment to benefit patients in the Greater Bay Area and worldwide. A number of new CHM-based drugs have been successfully developed in Hong Kong and used for different treatments of diseases. In the event, the distinguish speakers will talk about their impactful research and share how they translate Chinese medicinal wisdom into pharmaceutical products using cutting-edge technology.
