4 November 2013


The School of Chinese Medicine (SCM) hosted an Honorary Professorship Conferment Ceremony-cum-Distinguished Scholar Lecture today (4 November) in recognition of national medical master Professor Li Jiren’s outstanding contribution to academics, clinical study and research. Following the ceremony, Professor Li delivered a lecture on impediment syndrome and wilting syndrome to about 300 Chinese medicine practitioners as well as teachers, students and alumni of HKBU.

In the lecture, Professor Li shared his clinical experience and expertise in treating impediment syndrome and wilting syndrome accumulated during his medical career over the past six decades. He also talked about his unique treatment method and the “theory of unity of impediment syndrome and wilting syndrome”.

Among the first batch of national medical masters, Professor Li has made exceptional achievements in various areas of Chinese medicine, including academics, clinical study and research. Professor Lu Aiping, Dean of SCM, commended Professor Li as a leader in the Chinese medicine sector and expressed his hope that the School would be able to scale new heights in the areas of education, research and clinical services in Chinese medicine under the guidance of Professor Li and other Honorary Professors. 

The School also recognised five other outstanding scholars and national medical masters last month. They were Professor Chen Kaixian, President of Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine; Professor Guo Dean, Director of Shanghai Research Centre for TCM Modernization, Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Sciences; Professor Tan Weihong, Director of the State Key Laboratory of Chemo/Biosensing and Chemometrics of Hunan University, and Distinguished Professor of the University of Florida; and two national medical masters from China, Professor Zhu Liangchun and Professor Lu Guangxin.
