30 December 2021


PhD student Sam Yuen has been awarded a scholarship of HK$50,000 under the Dragon Culture Doctoral Scholarships for Medicine in support of his research on the use of integrated medicine in the treatment of Parkinson's disease (PD).  The Scholarships were launched by Dragon Culture Charity Fund Limited in 2021 to support the research endeavors of doctoral students in the fields of Chinese and Western medicine. 

Sam will take an epidemiological approach to examining the Chinese medicine therapeutic strategies for PD and their efficacy.  He will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of Chinese medicine treatments for PD by means of clinical studies.  His proposed research will be the first clinical trial ever conducted for PD medication under the guidelines on clinical practice of integrated medicine.
