This weekend in London the 16th International Acupuncture Research Symposium will be taking place. I am looking forward to attending and finding out more about the various different research projects that have been taking place. In particular there is Lily Lai’s talk on her PhD research into the use of Chinese Herbal Medicine for Polycistic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). I am studying Chinese Herbal Medicine at the moment and hope to qualify in March 2015. Lily Lai is a Research Training Fellow, funded by the UK’s National Institute for Health Research, her work developing a pilot study for women with PCOS to have access to Chinese Herbal Medicine sounds really interesting.
People often ask about whether there is good quality research available about Chinese Medicine. Hopefully the conference will give me a chance to find out more and to report back !
