The University recently received a generous donation of HK$5 million from Laboratory JaneClare Limited for the establishment of the “JaneClare Transdermal TCM Therapy Laboratory”, in support of product and talent development for the School of Chinese Medicine (SCM).

In recognition of the Company’s generosity, a cheque presentation ceremony was held on 21 November 2017.

Chin, President and Vice-Chancellor; Professor Rick Wong, Vice-President (Research and Development); Professor Lyu Aiping, Dean of SCM; Professor Yu Zhiling, Associate Director of the SCM Technology Development Division.

In his address, Professor Chin expressed his heartfelt gratitude for Ms. Lee’s generous support towards the University and said the collaboration was a significant one. He added that JaneClare and the SCM shared the same vision and goal of exploring and conducting research for the benefit of people’s health. The high-calibre research teams would use state-of-the-art technology to develop new treatments and drugs from Chinese herbs.
