Florida Campus Director of Research Liang Zhang, M.D., Ph.D., recently visited the University of South China (USC) “to develop our research capability and to fulfill our current commitment to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) by fostering our collaboration with Chinese scientists,” said Dr. Zhang.

USC is a major university located in the southern Chinese city of Hengyang, Hunan Province, and is comprised of several professional schools with almost 30,000 undergraduate students, and 900 M.S. and Ph.D. graduate students, plus an additional 400 medical students.

Dr. Zhang’s chief collaborator, Duan-Fang Liao, M.D., Ph.D., is the director of USC’s Institute of Pharmacy and Pharmacology, one of the best funded and equipped of USC’s affiliated research institutes. Dr. Zhang has a current NIH grant to study the effects of aging on bone. To accelerate this research, Dr. Zhang helped build a new laboratory on the Florida Campus to study bone cells with an emphasis on testing physical impacts on these cells.

“We plan to perform mechanical impact studies on bone cells, which would mimic chiropractic effects on cells,” said Dr. Zhang. “This will be the first-ever attempt to study chiropractic’s physical impact on cells, which would help us in understanding the beneficial effects of chiropractic therapy.”
