European doctors in 18th century Macao

by halikowski Online Now Mar 18, 2010 at 4:28 AM

In Philippe Pons's book popular `Macao' on page 60 he writes: `it was thanks to a French doctor practising in 18th century Macao that the Chinese pharmacopeia and traditional medecines came to Europe'. Can anybody tell me who this doctor was, his name?
Thanks,
Stefan
