Research Interests

I have been engaged in researches on active components in medicinal plants and quality evaluation system of traditional Chinese medicine for years, and undertaking more than ten research projects of national ministries and commissions. I have studied on active ingredients and the Quality Specification of dozens of TCMs, such as Gingko Folium, Echinacea, Rubiae Radix Et Rhizoma , Magnoliae Officinalis Cortex, Pyrrosiae Folium, Mume Flos, Apocyni Veneti Folium, Polyporus and Gardeniae Fructus. In these traditional Chinese medicines, Mume Flos and Rubiae Radix Et Rhizoma were presented in the 2005 and 2010 edition of ChinesePharmacopeia. I have published more than 70 articles inculeding 30 SCI-collected papers with 4 patents authorized and 3 new drugs licensed for clinical study. Also I have trained more than 20 masters and been an editor for six professional books.
