09 Center for Biomedical Science

The Center for Biomedical Science is core research center of chronic diseases for preparing the future medicine.

The Center for Biomedical Science conducts research on chronic disease (diseases in the brain and cardiovascular system, diabetes and respiratory/ allergic diseases) prevention and control technologies and rare disease diagnosis. In addition, to support regenerative medicine research and clinical applications, we provide stem cell resources and GMP facility through The National Center for Stem Cell And Regenerative Medicine (NCSR). The Center for Biomedical Science also supports medical expenses for patients suffering from rare diseases.
