This research project will help Chinese medicine’s development in research that would lead to better understandings of the mechanism of its clinical efficacy in wider public and medical professions internationally, hence to make better contributions to the health care of mankind.

Dr Yu-ling Ma, Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford, the project leader said that the company is preparing a 5 year plan of research collaboration with the University of Oxford.

Professor Richard Vaughan-Jones said that the emergence of systems biology helps the development of the study of Chinese medicine; the University of Oxford was one of the early initiators in the study of systems biology. With much interest he is looking forward to seeing the development of the collaborative research project with Shaanxi Momentum Pharmaceutical.
