The Chinese University is a pioneer and leader in the development and research of Chinese medicine in Hong Kong. The University started the research in this field in the 70’s. In gratitude for the substantial donation made by Dr. Li Dak Sum, the Li Dak Sum Yip Yio Chin R&D Centre for Chinese Medicine was established in 2015. The Centre aims to enhance the development, modernization, and application of the industry. In collaboration with other departments and Institutes within and outside the University, the Centre will be an integrated platform for the communication between the academic, government, industrial partners and regulatory agents in the field. The Centre will potentiate multidisciplinary collaboration for the modernization of Chinese Medicine. The Centre will also help to raise the standard of quality control and assurance of Chinese medicinal materials and related commercial products.
