Hong Kong Baptist University Joint Centre for Pain Research (JCPR)

Established in 2018, Hong Kong Baptist University Joint Centre for Pain Research (JCPR) is to encourage collaboration and cooperation of multicenter clinical research on pain involving scientists, clinicians and healthcare providers associated with different institute/university. Develop new biomaterials for diagnosis, prevention and treatment of pain, select policy topics and write joint position papers for publication, and also advise local governments on the subject. The Centre aims to conduct joint projects and high-quality pain-related researches, in collaborating with State University of New York at Stony Brook (SBU) and Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (SUTCM). The Centre will serve as an integrated platform not only to support and expand our bench-to-bedside and bedside-to-bench studies on pain-related diseases, but also to promote public education and knowledge of pain and its management.

EQUATOR (Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research) China Centre (EQCC)

Established in 2019, The EQUATOR (Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research) Network is an international initiative that seeks to improve the reliability and value of published health research literature by promoting transparent and accurate reporting and wider use of robust reporting guidelines. The EQUATOR Network now has four centres, including UK, Canada, France and Australasia. However, main centres are located in Europe and North America. This would limit the impact of the EQUATOR around the world. A bridge is needed to spread EQUATOR content throughout China, not just for the medical researchers in China, but for researchers for Chinese medicine over the world. The EQUATOR China Centre would be a platform to fill in this gap.

HKBU and IncreasePharm Joint Centre for Nucleic Acid Drug Discovery (NADD)

Established in 2020, the HKBU & IncreasePharm Joint Centre for Nucleic Acid Drug Discovery (NADD) will be a systemic, standardized and high-throughput platform for molecule-level nucleic acid-based new drug discovery. The fully equipped nucleic acid preparation platform will provide the JCNADD full capability and capacity to perform in vivo efficacy determination and short-term and long-term safety evaluation in the process of new drug discovery and development.
