|Since 2007, a long-term partnership has been created between Kumning Institute of Botany, Chinese Academy of Science (KIB,CAS) and Institute of Chinese Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (ICM,CUHK). The two Institutes signed an agreement to establish a Joint laboratory on Phytochemistry of Medicinal Plants and Plant Resources in 2007, and submitted the joint application for establishing the Joint State Key Laboratory in the End of 2007.
In mid 2009, the “State Key Laboratory of Phytochemistry and Plant Resources in West China (CUHK)” was approved by the Ministry of Science & Technology to be established. In preparation for this important initiative, collaborations between KIB and ICM, including exchange visits, workshops, scholar and student exchanges as well as the joint research projects etc, have been started.
