In 2003, Yao Xinsheng, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, and Profs. Ye Wencai and Li Yuan jointly established the Institute of TCM and Natural Medicine. In 2016, Profs. Gao Hao and He Rongrong became director and deputy director, respectively. The institute has now formed a teaching and research team of academicians and talents at various levels from national and provincial departments. With achievements in applied basic research and transformation of scientific and technological breakthroughs, this team serves as the core component and key supporting force of JNU’s double-first-class discipline in pharmacy, as well as national key laboratories and projects supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China's Science Fund for Creative Research Groups.
