An ex­cit­ing time for Com­ple­men­tary Medicine re­search

Pharmacy Daily - - News -

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.
