The Department of Medicinal Botany and Healthcare had established and belongs to the college of Biotechnology & Bioresources in2007. Our office is located at J201 of the Medicinal Botany and Healthcare department. Our department has four full-time instructors and nine adjunct instructors, whose had specialized inPharmaceutical botany, Chinese medicinal health care, and Biotechnology.
Due to the vigorous development of Biotechnology, people pay more attention on the health care. Traditionally, the medicinal science claims that we should convalesce through care before become ill rather than accept the treatment hastily after we got illness. Nowadays, the medicinal science regards that preventive medicine is still important. Therefore, we can see the importance of the preventive medicine is better than medicinal treatment.

At the same time, the preventive medicine and the life –cultivation had been accepted generally. During this development, the Chinese herbal medicine and healthy products become the important investment of many companies and biological industry.
Therefore, the estimation and election should establish on Taiwan’s climate, and the soil environment.

The goal is to building up the medicinal plant’s industry, and it will be one of the important elements in the Chinese herbal medicine by developing the manufacturing technique. In Taiwan’s Chinese herbal medicine industry, not only to improve the manufacturing technique of the Chinese herbal medicine, and increase the high and stable quality’s ingredients, the Base Source identification, the election of ingredients and the management of quality are also the key point for the Chinese herbal medicine advances to international market.
