Scientific Research

Our team of highly trained PhDs and Postdoctoral Researchers at Chang Gung Biotechnology work very closely with researchers at both Chang Gung University & Chang Gung Memorial Hospital to continue to explore the numerous benefits and potential applications for our adaptogen fungi.

Take a look at some of our research below:
