Call for Papers of "International Symposium on Innovation of Natural Product Resources of Traditional Chinese Medicine in the Asia-Pacific Region"

1. Background

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an important part of Chinese traditional culture and has played a crucial role in the COVID-19 epidemic prevention and control. In 2019, the State Council issued Opinions on Facilitating the Inheritance, Innovation and Development of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which has incorporated TCM into a building a community of shared future for mankind and the international cooperation of Belt and Road Initiative, promoting the inheritance and innovation of TCM as well as the high-quality development of TCM industry. At present, highly attentions have been paid to the technological innovation of TCM resources globally. Artemisinin, ginsenoside, and other functional compositions of TCM were successfully synthesized by synthetic biotechnology which provided new technical routes for TCM resources mining and the sustainable growth of TCM industry.

Supported by the China-APEC Cooperation Fund Project, which is launched by the Ministry of Finance of the People's Republic of China in 2010 to support organizations of China for multilateral science, technology and innovation cooperation under the framework of APEC, Tianjin Institute of Industrial Biotechnology (TIB), Chinese Academy of Sciences is going to organize a conference named “International Symposium on Innovation of Natural Product Resources of Traditional Chinese Medicine in the Asia-Pacific Region” during December, 2022 in Tianjin, China. The symposium will focus on the development and application of TCM resources in the Asia-Pacific region under the epidemic situation, and invite international and domestic experts and scholars in related fields to introduce the latest research progress and discuss the new trends, to accelerate the communication and cooperation in the filed and play an active role in promoting to build a community of common health for mankind.
