Clinical Research Support

Clinical Research Support

This module aims to promote clinical research carried out in accordance with the Act on the Safety of Regenerative Medicine. The following assistance is provided free of charge:

 

  • Protocol advice for clinical research, etc.
  • Assistance with creation of Regenerative Medicine Provision Plans
  • Administrative advice related to production management and quality management at cell processing facilities
  • Advice for clinical research assistance sections at universities, etc.
  • Providing information related to medical institutions engaged in clinical research and cell processing facilities
  • Advice for Certified Committees for Regenerative Medicine

 

Until now, clinical research in regenerative medicine and related fields was only carried out at a limited number of research institutions. We aim to create a system to utilize the knowledge and experience nationwide in Japan. Management and administration are carried out by the Japanese Society for Regenerative Medicine’s Network Committee.

 

As of February 2018, assistance has been provided to approximately 40 clients (approximately half academia and half industry). The scope of our support covers a broad range of issues, from the technical aspects of establishing iPS cells to administrative tasks such as the creation of Regenerative Medicine Provision Plans.
