Research Center for Traditional Chinese Medicine
The Research Center for Traditional Chinese Medicine (RCTCM) 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 traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) research center.
Meanwhile, Dr. Hung-Rong Yen at the CMUH Research Center for Traditional Chinese Medicine also helped China Medical University, Taiwan to apply for the "Chinese Medicine Research Center program" grant from the Aim for the Top University Project and the Higher Education Sprout Project by the Ministry of Education in 2014 and 2018, respectively.
The research center focuses on TCM evidence-based study and immunoregulation study. On the one hand, we extend the research of basic immunoregulation mechanism to TCM clinical immunotherapy and application. We carry out TCM evidence-based research 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 research, 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, cellular experiements, biochemistry, molecular biology, 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 evidence-based translational and clinical research, enabling the immune disease to become a preventable, treatable, and controllable chronic disease.
