Organisation profile

With thousands of years of history, the development of Chinese medicine has made a tremendous contribution to the proliferation and prosperity of the nations of China and neighboring countries. Owing to the great breadth and profundity of its theories and proven efficacy, Chinese medicine has become a new focus of attention for scientists all over the world. Committed to both inheritance and innovation in Chinese medicine, the School of Chinese Medicine (SCM) of Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) makes full use of modern technologies to conduct innovative research on standardisation of Chinese medicine and integration of Chinese medicine and western medicine, and contributes to the internationalisation of Chinese medicine.

The fundamental research strength of SCM lies in the academic and research experts who comprise the largest research team of Chinese medicine in Hong Kong. Riding on the University's strategy of fostering interdisciplinary research, the experts and researchers of SCM have been conducting innovative research on the traditional discipline of Chinese medicine which aims to discover new knowledge and create novel technologies for translation and application to benefit society, and they have produced very encouraging results on this front. The faculty members of SCM have produced substantial research outputs in international scientific journals and have been granted numerous patent rights from the US, European, the People's Republic of China and Hong Kong. In the results of the Research Assessment Exercise 2014 announced by the University Grants Committee, SCM outshone other institutions in the percentage of four-star rating (world leading) in the field of Chinese medicine. Looking ahead, SCM will continue to work hard and scale new heights in the research field of innovative drug discovery, precision medicine and phenome research based on Chinese medicine.
