Bridging the Two Worlds:Engaging Traditional Chinese Medicine in Modern Health Care

Please upload your abstracts by January 12, 2024 to:

The SAR / RCMI PolyU 2024 conference will present a platform wherein researchers from various healthcare professionals and disciplines can share, explore, and develop novel research hypotheses and strategies for acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The primary objective of this conference is to construct a robust bridge between the East and West, with the aim of advancing the scientific understanding and evidence-based clinical applications of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Our goal is to enhance patient outcomes and optimize health care delivery through this integration.

We seek to build bridges between basic mechanisms and precision clinical medicine, as well as ancient wisdom (e.g. personalized therapies) and modern technology (e.g. Artificial Intelligence). This fusion will not only honor the rich heritage of TCM but also pave the way for its evolution in the modern health care landscape.

Abstract submission
