Outlines/Features of Research
The mission of National Research Centers for Advanced and Specialized Medical Care, consisting of six National Centers, is to overcome particular diseases with a significant impact on the national health. We are actively working on establishment of a joint biobank, "common platform" for bio-resource collection that facilitates industry-academic-government cooperation through broad joint research.
Differences with Conventional/Competitive Technologies
The National Center Biobank Network (NCBN) is composed of 6 National Centers and plays a key role in a national undertaking of biobank. NCBN has three distinctive features: (1) collection of tissues and body fluids from patients, (2) possession of fine, traceable medical records and (3) collaborative efforts of hospital and research institute on planning and dissemination of medical-care policy.
Expected Applications
In the use of bio-resources and their associated medical records that are collected in NCBN, personalized medicine and genomic drug discovery constitute a principal application field. Research of personalized medicine is undertaken to find a clue linking disease and genetic/genomic information, while that of genomic drug discovery is followed to pursue the underlying mechanisms and therapeutics.
