The Analytic and Clinical Cooperative Laboratory for Integrative Medicine (ACCLAIM), a laboratory for big-data research, has been recently established by The Chinese University of Hong Kong and the University of Sydney to serve as a platform for scientists and clinicians to share the best of information technology, data analysis, and clinical research for the advancement of evidence-based integrative medicine.
The inaugural symposium was held on 15 and 16 July 2016. Officiating guests of the opening ceremony included Hon. Dr. Helen Sham-ho (4th left), OAM-JP, former Vice President of the Legislative Council of New South Wales, Australia, and Dr. Cheung Wai-lun (3rd right), Director (Cluster Services) of Hospital Authority.
