Chinese medicine specialist named Qi Huang Young Scholar
18 Jan 2021
Dr Linda Zhong, Assistant Professor of the School of Chinese Medicine, has recently been named a Qi Huang Young Scholar by the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine in recognition of her excellence in clinical practice and studies of Chinese medicine.
Among the 100 emerging Chinese medicine specialists selected from across the country to receive the honourable title and associated grant, Dr Zhong is one of only two from Hong Kong. In the coming three years, she will be funded by the programme to engage in collaborative research and intellectual exchanges with leading scholars and veteran Chinese medicine practitioners, take part in knowledge transfer partnerships with the industry and the community, and develop her own research projects.
The Qi Huang Young Scholar programme aims to support the professional growth and academic pursuits of young scholars who have achieved early success in the field and shown huge potential to carry forward the heritage of Traditional Chinese Medicine and drive its innovative development.
