Research Center for Traditional Chinese Medicine
The Research Center for Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) at China Medical University Hospital (CMUH) was founded by the Departments of Medical Research and Department of Chinese Medicine in September 2013. Dr. Hung-rong Yen, as a physician scientist, takes charge of the Center and aims to bridge basic and clinical research to lead the Center towards the goal of becoming a top international TCM research center.
Meanwhile, the CMUH Research Center for Traditional Chinese Medicine Dr. Hung-rong Yen helped China Medical University, Taiwan to apply for a project grant from the Ministry of Education top TCM research center project. He has also served as the Director of the China Medical University TCM Research Center since February 2017.
The research center focuses on TCM empirical study and immunoregulation study. On the one hand, we extend the research of basic immunoregulation mechanism to TCM clinical immunotherapy and application. On the other hand, we carry out TCM empirical research in phases and promote the clinical research of TCM translation supported by basic research, in an effort to support TCM clinical study based on basic research on cellular and molecular immunology.
The clinical problems can be answered through study, while research work can promote clinical efficacy. Long-term research work aims to apply multidisciplinary approaches, including but not limited to the knowledge of Chinese medicine, Western medicine, epidemiology, biostatistics, cells, biochemistry, molecules, and immunology, as well as scientific experimental data to confirm and find out the TCM that can control the immune response, and to perform TCM empirical translational and clinical research, enabling the immune disease to become a preventable, treatable, and controllable chronic disease.
