The National Institute of Complementary Medicine (NICM), established in 2007, provides leadership and support for strategically directed research into complementary medicine and translation of evidence into clinical practice and relevant policy to benefit the health of all Australians.
NICM’s researchers, students and collaborators have access to world class research facilities at WSU Campbelltown. Alongside purpose built herbal laboratories and mass spectrometry facilities, substantial university resources such as Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), confocal laser microscopy and small animal facilities support the research programs. NICM continues to invest in new equipment and infrastructure each year.
Under the leadership of Professor Alan Bensoussan (Professor of Chinese Medicine), NICM has forged a broad network of links with other national and international organisations within government and industry, and are currently involved in collaborative projects with institutions in China, Hong Kong, United States and the United Kingdom.
