About the Lab

Our Mission:

Inspired by the concept of neuronal “synapses”, the SYNAPSE Research Program aims to solve clinical and scientific puzzles by connecting innovation and technology, physiology and pathology, gene and environment, health and disease. We also aim to bridge Eastern medicine and Western medicine.
