13 Aug 2005 - The golden orange flag of NUS was hoisted at the exhibition hall in Bandung, Indonesia, where the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research, Department of Biological Sciences, Faculty of Science (RMBR) was part of the formal opening of a traveling international 'exhibition on Indonesian Jamu and other folk medicinal practices in Southeast Asia'.

This international exhibition was organized by the World Think Tank organization based in Belgium and contributed to by a number of institutions in Indonesia, the University of Leiden (Netherlands), the University of Crete (Greece), and the National University of Singapore.

The other participating partners from NUS besides the Raffles Museum are the Department of Pharmacy, Faculty of Science, and the Museum, NUS Centre for the Arts.

The exhibition is organized to showcase the traditional knowledge of folk medicinal practices in Indonesia and the region as an alternative to the western medicines. It includes two panel contributions from NUS showing traditional Chinese medicine use in Singapore, and other medicinal plants used traditionally in the region.

The exhibition will next travel to Greece, the Netherlands, and finallly to Singapore for public display at the Museum, NUS Centre for the Arts, in March 2006, as part of the year long celebration of the NUS Centennial.
