An exciting time for Complementary Medicine research
THE challenges that the Complementary Medicine industry has faced will certainly continue to be highlighted as the industry grows at a phenomenal rate.
This challenge is an opportunity to build and look at how we as an industry can improve – research is one way we can do so as it is a fundamental pillar which validates our traditional systems and medicines.
NICM Health Research Institute based out of Western Sydney University has been pioneering research in the Complementary Medicine industry in various forms for over 20 years.
My role as commercial manager is to bridge the gap between research and industry so we can work together to continue to raise the bar and develop world class research.
There are many ways that NICM can work together with industry through our consulting services, TGA licenced laboratory, clinical research services or IP development of ingredients and products.
With a number of grants available and regulations changing towards evidenced based models it is certainly a great time to invest in research as the benefits and return on investment is at an all-time high.
