Site Introduction

Northern Chang Gung Memorial Hospitals (CGMH) are much honored to be granted since 2009 to establish an excellent Clinical Trials and Center (CTC) in to foster clinical research by means of the highest ethical and scientific standards in a practical and cost-effective manner to promote new therapeutic discovery and validation. We have integrated clinical trials in CGMH at Linkou and Keelung, established space construction, hardware and software acquisition, personnel training, and standard operating procedures (SOPs) submitted for approval. We strived to (1) facilitate routes of communication between industry sponsorship and CGMH investigators; (2) provide the infrastructure for clinical research (personnel and facilities); (3) convene IRB consortium in excellent CTCs as well as the other medical centers; (4) promote key environments for international collaborations with academic institutions and industrial partnership; (5) and well communication of MOHW programs that include “Establishing an excellent cancer research center” and “Establishing an excellent clinical trial center”. 
In the 21st century, Taiwan will impress the world with its vast potential in medicine and biotechnology. Prospectively, national and international pharmaceutical companies, government research agencies and private sectors seeking academic medical centers to test new diagnostics and therapies will find that CGMHs have positioned themselves at the top of this new wave in clinical trials and translational research. We also assist phase III randomized trials of Asian Gynecologic Oncology Group, GCIG, NRG, and other international consortiums. Several young attending physicians will be sent to collaborative international medical centers for training.

Clinicl Trial Expertise

(1) facilitate routes of communication between industry sponsorship and CGMH investigators via "One-stop Shopping" by CTC;
(2) provide the infrastructure for clinical research (personnel and facilities) in all four CGMHs and prepare all CGMHs to pass the Amemrican Accreditation Human Research Protection Program (AAHRPP) accreditation;
(3) carry out molecular imaging, proton therapy (hepatoma trials will carry out gender difference analysis) and cell-base regenerative therapies and facilitate clinical validation of several useful biomarkers;
(4) promote key environments for international collaborations with academic institutions and industrial partnership; worked on harmonization between domestic medical centers and also top-4 medical Centers in China;
(5) set up a supportive system for CTC personals and build up competitive strength for Taiwanese investigators to be principal investigators (PI) of international multicenter trials.
