On December 17, an R&D team from the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) led by Prof. Bruce Milthorpe, Dean of Science UTS, visited the Chengdu University of TCM to promote mutual cooperation in the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).
“The Chengdu University of TCM is one of the famous universities involving the field of the TCM in China, and it has also attracted the attention of Australia. We’re glad to join hands with the well-known university to start a research subject about improving quality and production of Chinese medical herbs and plants,” said prof. Milthorpe, “I hope our research could produce results in three years.”
Prof. Milthorpe expressed that both universities should increase exchanges between their teachers and students to strengthen the mutual partnership in education. He hoped for mutual recognition of the degrees and diplomas in the future.
Since the early 1990s, the Faculty of Science UTS has set up TCM program at the School of Medical and Molecular Biosciences, in hopes of giving full play to the role of the TCM through the integration of western medicine techniques and TCM theories. “More and more Australian are becoming interested in the TCM, and some of them favor acupuncture and Chinese massage besides herbal medicines,” said Prof. Milthorpe.
