‘Set up Sabah herbs centre’ call
Prof. Wiart is also a visiting professor of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ethnomedicine of China’s Hunan University of Chinese Medicine.
Kota Kinabalu: Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) Assoc. Prof Dr Christophe Wiart urged the Sabah Government to set up a Medicinal Plants Research Centre to document all such plants for future generations.

“This also about saving local traditional medicinal culture, with the prospect of producing good quality products from medicinal plants and herbs, besides preserving the rainforest, the environment,” he said.

Prof Wiart said this in his presentation: “Medicinal Plants of Sabah (North Borneo)” to members and guests of Sabah Society recently. 

He is also the General Secretary of the Asian Society of Pharmacology, Associate Editor of Pharmaceutical Biology, and Editor-in-Chief of the Asian Journal of Pharmacognosy.
