Educational Objectives

The objective of this program is to identify and develop active components within traditional Chinese prescriptions and medicinal herbs with potent anticancer properties. Selected prescriptions and herbs will be tested through CMU’s technologic platforms which include: experimental animal models, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics studies, safety and effective assessments, pre-clinical testing and ultimately human clinical trials. Hence, the distinguishing feature of integrated traditional Chinese and western medicinal development in this program will greatly enhance the medicinal research ability of CMU and enabling Taiwan to be greatly recognized by the international medical society.
