Dr. Dou joined the Botanical Review Team in FDA/CDER in 2002, and is currently an expert pharmacologist reviewer on botanical drugs.  He has conducted primary reviews on the majority of the botanical Investigational New Drug (IND) applications and the first two botanical New Drug Applications (NDAs).  He has also conducted pharmacology and toxicology reviews on non-botanical, small-molecule INDs and NDAs.  

Prior to FDA, Dr. Dou had worked as a lead natural products scientist for a biopharmaceutical company on anticancer drug discovery and development from medicinal plants.  He had taught pharmacognosy classes at Beijing University of Chinese Medicine for 4 years (1987-1991) before coming to the US for graduate studies.   Dr. Dou enjoys running, playing basketball, and photography of plants.
