The Medieval Transmission of Medicine along the Silk Routes
Dr Lo has
worked extensively over the last five years with Professor Wang Yidan,
Head of the Persian Section, Department of Oriental Languages, Peking
University. They work together on late medieval Persian history, and
particularly on the Persia China Silk Road connection. We have lectured
worldwide and have two jointly authored articles in press. Dr Chen Ming
from PKU, whose research focuses on science and culture along the Silk Roads,
has contributed a number of articles to a Wellcome Trust funded project
Dunhuang 2000, and to Dr Lo’s book Medieval Chinese Medicine, and the
journal that she edits, Asian Medicine: Tradition and Modernity.
