Professor De-an Guo, PhD, of Shanghai, China (above right), received the prestigious Norman R. Farnsworth Excellence in Botanical Research Award from Joseph Betz, PhD (above left), from the Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS).
Prof Guo’s research has centered on the quality control, biochemistry and metabolism of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) ingredients. His phytochemical investigations of traditional Chinese herbal medicines have resulted in the identification of 100 new chemical entities.
“Professor Guo is not only an established scientist, he has provided leadership in the modernization of TCM,” said past recipient of ABC’s Farnsworth Award, Professor Ikhlas Khan, PhD, a research professor of pharmacognosy and associate director of the National Center for Natural Products Research at the University of Mississippi.
