Scope: Income: Confucius Institute 2017 Faculty Grant-JC

Grants and Contracts Details


The basis of my proposal is that Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), in contrast to Western Medicine, relies upon 600 to 1,000 different plants for the treatment of diseases and health conditions. I would like to pursue a similar strategy with a few other TCM herbs. These include TCM plants indigenous to China: Glycyrrhiza uralensis, Tripterygium wilfordii, Salvia miltiorrhiza, and Prunella species. The goal of my proposed trip is thus to cement some of the technical and legal commitments between myself as a University of Kentucky professor and my colleagues in China to pursue the proposed experimental work. These professors and many members from their work groups will be attending the two meetings I identified in my original application materials.
