Mio is a post-doctoral research fellow in Primary Care and Population Sciences department, Faculty of Medicine. 

Mio joined the department as a NIHR SPCR funded research fellow in the group of Prof George Lewith in 2016. She has been actively involved in leading and delivering a variety of research using quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods methodologies.

She is currently working as the primary researcher on several SPCR funded systematic reviews and clinical trials, to assess clinical effects and safety of herbal interventions in infectious diseases and gynaecological conditions.

I see integrative medicine as the future healthcare model. It is the optimum treatment considering conventional, complementary and alternative interventions. With its goals of health and healing it emphasises an individualised holistic approach, self-management, and the practitioner-patient relationship within multidisciplinary collaborative teams. It is evidence based, effective, safe and low cost.
