Prof. LIN Ge (林鴿) is currently working as a full professor at School of Biomedical Sciences, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). She also serves as Director of Joint Research Laboratory for Promoting Globalization of Traditional Chinese Medicines between Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Sciences and CUHK. Prof. Lin has a longstanding interest in pharmaceutical research including: 1) drug metabolism (DM) and pharmacokinetics (PK); 2) pharmacology and mechanisms of drug actions; 3) idiosyncratic adverse effect/toxicity; 4) herb-drug interactions; and 5) globalization of Chinese medicinal (CM) herbs. She is an expert in applying multidisciplinary studies for investigating TCM herbs. Her research in CM herbs integrates chemical analysis, PK, PD, and toxicology studies for the identification of bioactive ingredients with confirmed bioavailability and verified PK fates, safety assessment, and development of quality control of CM herbs and their beneficial interactions with orthodox drugs. Prof. Lin is also working on translational research. One of her on-going research projects is to develop biomarkers for the diagnosis and assessment of hepatotoxicity induced by pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PA)-containing herbs and PA-contaminated foods. Her team is one of the world leading groups in this field and has been well recognized internationally.
- Toxicology, in particular idiosyncratic hepatotoxicity and tumorigenicity.
- Herb-drug interactions, in particular chemopreventive and synergistic anticancer effects of CM herbs in the combinational therapy of anticancer drugs with CM herbs.
- Pharmacokinetics of therapeutic drugs and CM herbs.
- Integrative approach for the study of CM herbs, including chemical analysis, pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, safety and quality control of CM herbs.
