GALLANT BIOTECHNOLOGY LIMITED
A company that develops and sells molecular pharmaceutical products
The founder Dr. Gallant CHAN has been trained as a molecular biologist during his Bachelor and Mphil study 20 years ago. Dr. CHAN is an expert in molecular cloning. He has characterized DNA markers from various types of biomaterials including viruses, bacteria, fungi, fishes, reptiles, mammalian cells, herbal materials, Chinese medicine and even raw materials for cosmetic products. It opens up the gate of BIOTECHNOLOGY.
Since 2006, Dr. Gallant CHAN has started to explore the area of Chinese Medicine. He has participated in the preparation of Hong Kong Chinese Materia Medica Standards (Phase III & IV) and was the one who prepared the monographs for Ginkgo Folium. “Even more professional than the professionists” is the last comment from an international advisory board member to Dr. Chan about his work on Ginkgo Folium before the official endorsement. It opens up the gate of PHARMACEUTICALS.
