The School of Chinese Medicine is committed to pursuing innovative research for the development of Chinese medicine, the promotion of human health and the prevention of diseases. To fulfill this mission, the School has identified innovative drug discovery as one of its strategic focuses, and launched in 2012 the International Summit on Innovative Drug Discovery held in Hong Kong. By hosting the biennial Summit with different focuses on new drug discovery in Chinese medicine, the School aims at providing a regular and sustainable platform for exchange and sharing of latest research findings in the field so as to advance the drug discovery process.

The second Summit entitled “Charting the Course of Standardisation of Chinese Materia Medica” to be organised in November 2014 will focus on the standardisation of Chinese medicines, which serves as an important basis for new drug discovery.
