1. Single administration system to operate IRB, contracting and trial management of multi-center clinical trial.

2. Establish a comprehensive accelerator system for incubation, clinical trial, industrialization and commercialization.

3. TMU Healthcare System had accredited by AAHRPP Full Accreditation twice and followed ICH-GCP guideline.

Site Introduction

To manage clinical trials in 3 affiliated hospitals, TMU launched Joint Clinical Research Center (JCRC) and successfully introduced trials jointly accepted by the 3 affiliated hospitals.

Therefore, JCRC as one of departments of the Office of Human Research (OHR) plays the most important role in clinical research. We used Single-Window system to take all the clinical trial business in which the three affiliated hospitals can conducting trial simultaneously. OHR also incorporated JIRB for the ethical review service. This JIRB can be accepted by 3 hospitals at the same time through a single review process, which reduce many unnecessary times to process redundant application procedure. In addition, TMU JIRB is MOHW accredited central IRB (cIRB) review board. In order to ensure the quality of the clinical trials, we have a Data Safety Management Session (DSMS) to be responsible for data audit and safety monitoring. To conducting clinical research effortlessly, we established Joint Biobank (JBB) to collect clinical specimens from 3 hospitals. These specimens provide resources for clinical research. JBB also deliver high-end precision diagnosis for clinical services.

Taipei Medical University Healthcare system manage the international and national collaboration by providing AI Medicare with big data analysis for the drug development, cell therapy, and precision medicine. We also operate the medical professional as one team to include our scientists, clinical research centers, and clinical trial professionals for the conducting of international clinical trials.
