Professor Bian Zhaoxiang, Tsang Shiu Tim Endowed Professor in Chinese Medicine Clinical Studies and Associate Vice-President (Chinese Medicine Development) at HKBU, delivered a lecture titled “Traditional Wisdom of Chinese Medicine and its Application: Opportunity and Challenges” on 26 January. It was the first talk of the HKBU Distinguished Lecture Series 2022. More than 140 teachers, students and alumni attended.
Co-organised by the Institute of Creativity (IoC) and the Research Office at HKBU, Professor Guo Yike, Vice-President (Research and Development), said in his welcome address that the HKBU Distinguished Lecture Series invites world-class researchers to share their research and discoveries, and it enhances the research atmosphere on campus.
In the lecture, Professor Bian said that the University aspires to meet the pressing demand for quality Chinese medicine services through the preparation and operation of Hong Kong’s first Chinese Medicine Hospital. He also said he believes that more constructive comments, suggestions, and dedicated research works from multiple disciplines are required so that the traditional wisdom of Chinese medicine can benefit society, especially in terms of addressing ongoing challenges such as ageing.
