Aiming to become a modern Chinese medicine development platform in Hong Kong

Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) has received a donation of HK$230 million from the Wu Jieh Yee Charitable Foundation for the establishment of the Wu Jieh Yee Institute of Translational Chinese Medicine Research and support to the University’s Chinese medicine research.

The donation will also drive the standardisation and internationalisation of Chinese medicine, and further advance the international status of Chinese medicine through the application of cutting-edge technology and digitalisation.

The opening ceremony of the Wu Jieh Yee Institute of Translational Chinese Medicine Research was held recently. In 2019, the Foundation made a further contribution of HK$15.2 million to fund the Centre’s research on “The Molecular Characteristics and Interrelationship of Inflammation and Cancer: New Therapeutic Strategy with Traditional Chinese Medicine”, aimed at advancing the development of traditional Chinese medicine in the prevention and treatment of cancer and inflammation, thereby benefiting the community.

The newly established Wu Jieh Yee Institute of Translational Chinese Medicine Research, grounded in traditional Chinese medicine, will integrate scientific principles into its theoretical, diagnostic and treatment protocols, and introduce innovative thinking and methodologies to Chinese medicine.

The primary mission of the Wu Jieh Yee Institute of Translational Chinese Medicine Research is to become a globally recognised innovative research centre in Chinese medicine. The Institute is equipped with advanced research infrastructure and provides a platform for high-quality translational Chinese medicine research, with the aim of generating scientific research outcomes that can be applied to society.
