To speed up the application of experiment result on clinical healthcare, CMUH has established the Department of Medical Research in 1996 to regularly appropriate research and development funding each year and encourage all medical units of CMUH to engage in the research. CMUH now owns many doctors in fundamental medicine who combine the clinical and fundamental medicine for in-depth discussion.
Apart from signing cooperation contract with University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center for involvement in cancer research, other key research fields include genetics and gene therapy, proteome, molecular medicine, Chinese Materia Medica, and stem cells. The research projects carried out throughout the years and the research papers published have rapidly grown in both quantity and quality.
Currently the “Comprehensive Medical Centers” of CMUH not only offers patient oriented medical services, considerable design of medical process, complete and comprehensive medical care to patients but also substantially improve the research quality of CMUH through interdisciplinary clinical and fundamental integration.
The “Comprehensive Medical Centers” of CMUH include: Cancer Center, Cerebral Stroke Center, Cardiovascular Center, Organ Transplantation Center, Trauma and Emergency Center, Preventive Medicine Center, Renal Care Center, and International Medical Service Center.
CMUH has established the “Center for Molecular Medicine” in June, 1996, followed by establishing 9 research centers for local disease since August, 1999, including: Biomedical Technology Research Center, L5 Research Center, Sex Hormone Research Center, Chinese Medicine Translational Research Center, Center for Molecular Medicine, Translational (Brain Science) Medical Research Center, Mind-Body Interface Lab, Center for Psychiatric & Addictive Medicine, and Translational Medicine Research Center. These centers not only improve the research competitiveness of CMUH but also upgrade CMUH research to the international standard
CMUH “Comprehensive Medical Centers,” “Research Centers” and “Integrated Research Projects” all resolve around biomarker discovery, from translational medicine and clinical trial to the process from research to application, and industry innovation and biomedical engineering including portfolio biotech, medicine and equipment product development. The centers aim to activate the exquisite idea of personalized medicine and objective in developing health industry.
