“The joint laboratory will leverage Increasepharm’s edge in synthetic chemistry and manufacture of new drugs. It will help in the commercialisation of PolyU’s drug development outputs,” said Prof. Wong Man-sau, Associate Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science & Textiles and Director of RCMI.
Prof. Wong added that the joint laboratory will develop novel herbal-based drugs for dementia and cognitive impairment, as well as conducting research on a ground-breaking drug delivery system to open the way for the development of new drugs for eye disease. The laboratory will also serve to nurture talents in new drugs development.
