SCM hosts spring reception and kicks off 20th anniversary celebrations

中醫藥學院舉行新春茶聚暨二十周年院慶啟動儀式

The School of Chinese Medicine (SCM) hosted a spring tea reception-cum-launch ceremony of its 20th anniversary celebration on campus on 25 February (Sunday), bringing together some 160 participants, including government officials, friends and supporters in the industry, partner organisations, University’s senior management, alumni, faculty members and students on this festive occasion.

President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Roland Chin, Vice-President (Research and Development) Professor Rick Wong, Vice-President (Teaching and Learning) Dr Albert Chau, Associate Vice-President (Chinese Medicine Development) Professor Bian Zhaoxiang, Associate Vice-President (Research) Professor Liu Jiming, Associate Vice-President (Engagement) Mr Yeung Chee-kong, and Dean of SCM Professor Lyu Aiping, officiated at a ceremony to launch the SCM 20th anniversary celebration with an array of celebratory activities that will take place between March 2018 and August 2019. Following the launch ceremony, President Chin and Dean Lyu were joined by Senior Manager (Chinese Medicine Hospital) of the Hospital Authority Ms Irene Ho, and Chairman of Chinese Medicine Practitioners Board, Chinese Medicine Council of Hong Kong Ms Wong Yu-yeuk, at the eye-dotting and red ribbon-tying ceremonies preceding the lion dance performance.

Speaking at the reception, Professor Rick Wong said that the School’s efforts and growth in the past 20 years since its modest beginning with only one undergraduate programme have been evident in its wide-ranging accomplishments in Chinese medicine (CM) education, research, clinical services, knowledge transfer and authentication of Chinese medicines as well as contribution to the standardisation and internationalisation of CM and the development of CM in Hong Kong. Professor Wong expressed his hope for the University to embark on the new venture of establishing the first Chinese medicine hospital in Hong Kong and nurturing more CM talent for the community.

In his speech, Professor Lyu said that the School has in recent years been focusing on three areas, namely precision medicine and phenomics, translational medicine and innovative drug discovery, and authentication and testing of Chinese medicines, with the aim of achieving breakthroughs in new drug discovery and modernisation of Chinese medicine. The School will continue to expand the scope of healthcare services offered by the CM clinics, from the treatment of diseases to include also the prevention of diseases and health management, to better serve the needs of the community.

The School has also launched a new website (https://scm.hkbu.edu.hk/anniversary20/en/) to provide details of its milestones, academic/teaching and clinical teams as well as the series of celebratory events. Members of the HKBU community and the general public are welcome to join.
