The MOU was signed by the two Vice-Chancellors, Prof. Joseph J.Y. Sung of CUHK and Dr. Michael Spence (left) of the University of Sydney. The two universities have closely collaborated for many years. Apart from a research programme in integrative medicine, there are ongoing multi-faceted research collaborations in cardiology, diabetes, digital media, and psychology. The first project of ACCLAIM focused on stroke, with the aim of identifying a complementary mechanism of integrative medicine and effective treatment plans to improve patients’ quality of life. Preliminary results hinted that stroke patients with integrative medicine treatment have better clinical outcomes. Studies on other diseases such as dementia, cancer and gastrointestinal disease are in the pipeline. ACCLAIM serves as a platform for scientists and clinicians to share the best of information technology, data analysis, and clinical research for the advancement of evidence-based integrative medicine. The joint laboratory focuses on downstream applied clinical research, with translational deliverables and big-data applications in clinical trials, building on a good international collaboration network, including the China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences, University of Manchester, and Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
