APRL:

Advanced Primo Research Laboratory is the worlds first research center to focus on the scientific research on oriental medicine in connection with anatomy. Our team is pursuing innovation in medicine by convergence of oriental and western medicine, based on the leading edge of biotechnology derived from primo vascular system. This lab mainly works on the bio-imaging of the acupuncture meridians and points (primo vessels and nodes), and on finding new fluid flowing paths to the brain from the skin. 

Contents of research:

1) To establish the acupuncture meridian system (primo vascular system (PVS)) as a new circulatory system for scientific foundation of oriental medicine.

2) Finding physiological roles and medical significances of the PVS.

3) Designing a new drug delivery modality through the PVS, especially the one to the brain from acupoints in the skin.

4) To find innovative diagnosis and treatment techniques of incurable brain/nerve diseases such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimers diseases.
