Programme(s) to which this project applies:

☑ MPhil/PhD ☒ MRes[Med] ☒ URIS

This project aims to understand the treatment principle of Chinese medicine, including the scientific rationale of diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, using artificial intelligence (AI)-assisted big data analysis. We established a series of AI model for the analysis of public-available and in-house clinical patient data, in order to decipher the underlying scientific evidence and connection between modern medical knowledge and the traditional wisdom in Chinese Medicine.
