Sinoveda was founded in 2006 by Dr. Yun Tam and Dr. Nuzhat Tam-Zaman. Both Doctors are pharmaceutical scientists. Given their Asian backgrounds - Hong Kong and Bangladesh, respectively - Dr. Tam and Dr. Tam-Zaman wanted to combine their past personal use of Traditional Chinese Medicines (TCM) and their respect for the accuracy and precision found in pharmaceuticals. With this goal in mind, Sinoveda was born.
Dr. Tam received his undergraduate degree from the University of Minnesota and then he did his MSc. and graduated from the University of British Columbia with his Ph.D in Pharmacokinetics.
Dr. Tam-Zaman did her B.Pharm and M.Pharm from the University of Dhaka in Bangladesh. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Alberta. During her Masters degree, she studied the medicinal effect of plants and she was very familiar with Pharmacognosy, which is the study of medicinal plants.
The backbone of Sinoveda is the use of our patented technology invented by Dr. Tam in 2007: Pharmaceutical Platform Technology (PPT). PPT consists of in-vitro and in-silico methods that allow our scientists to identify the bioactives that are responsible for the biological activity of any botanical. We are proud to say that PPT is patented worldwide. Using our patented technology, we have been able to develop a host of Rx candidates and natural health supplements.
