Outstanding TCM Researchers Awarded

According to World Federation of Chinese Medicine Societies, China bestowed awards upon the researchers dedicated to the development of traditional Chinese medicine on April 10 in Beijing. Tzi-chiang Lin from Australia, Chen Keji from China, and David Molony from the US won the awards.

Lin founded the division of Chinese medicine at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, and composed the first Chinese medicine textbooks that are well accepted by Western countries. Lin promoted the legislation of Chinese medicine in Victoria, and the making of the first international law on Chinese medicine.

David was a government official in the US, who pushed the making of Chinese-medicine-related laws there, to legislate the usage of acupuncture therapy in 46 states, rather than the original 26, and the usage of medicinal herbs in 20 states. He was also the one who introduce Chinese medicine to many other countries. The first acupuncture society in Milan, Italy, was founded by him under the authorization of the WHO.

Chen is a famous doctor in China, who made the TCM diagnostic criteria for blood stasis and coronary disease, which won for him the National Science and Technology Advancement Award.
