Description

A one-day interdisciplinary symposium and workshop entitled “Traditional Herbal Knowledge in the 21st century: Research, Challenges and Future Prospects” is to be held in the School of Pharmacy on September 18th, 2017 (10.00 – 17.00), funded by UCL Grand Challenges of Human Wellbeing initiative. All researchers, practitioners and graduates are welcome to join us.

We will examine the relevance of traditional herbal knowledge and explore future possibilities for its use, following WHO’s strategic goal of ...harnessing the potential contribution of traditional and complementary medicines (T&CM) to health, wellness and people- centred health care and… the safe and effective use of T&CM.

Several top-class researchers from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds will be giving seminars and workshops on natural and social science research methodologies. Also, participants will be able to discuss research challenge and future focus with them during lunch time.

If you are an undergraduate or postgraduate from the United Kingdom, we will also invite you to form a team of three to participate in our debate “Should the restriction of traditional medicinal plant derived products be enforced in Europe?’’. The winning team will be awarded £120. If you are interested in taking part, please send a draft of affirmative or negative arguments to Ka Yui Kum (ucnvkku@ucl.ac.uk) before Sept 1st, 2017 with max 500 words.

We also welcome your poster to be displayed in our event with the topic related to human well-being as well as natural products or anthropology. The abstract should be submitted to Ka Yui Kum (ucnvkku@ucl.ac.uk) before Aug 31st, 2017 with maximum 300 words.
