  Safety and Standardization Group
  The standardization of TCM products and botanicals has been a challenging issue for both scientists and regulatory bodies. In addition to the state-of-the-art analytical testing facilities at HKUST, BRI is developing novel methods for TCM standardization to enhance the acceptance and commercial profitability of TCM. A library of regulatory documents and literature as well as a database of scientific information on traditional medicinal ingredients are also available.

Current Studies
Determine the functional state of the TCM using cDNA expression profiling
Design and develop new bioassay systems to assess safety or to provide means for standardization of TCM products
Analyze ingredients in TCM products
Provide consultancy and technical advice regarding safety and quality issues
Search through literature for scientific data and information on TCM and other botanical preparations
