Hokkaido University Hospital
Clinical Research and
Medical Innovation Center

The operating goal of the Hokkaido University Hospital Clinical Research and Medical Innovation Center is to actualize optimal medical treatments. To this end, we are involved in creating items such as ground breaking pharmacological products and medical equipment developed in Japan and designing treatment methodologies for patients with intractable conditions. We also support research projects for the purpose of ensuring the implementation of optimal clinical research. To achieve these goals, we have assembled a staff of medical technology development and clinical research specialists and operate cutting edge facilities such as the Cell Processing Room and the Biobank.

Together with not only our doctors and researchers, but also employees at partner companies and, most of all, all of the patients and test subjects who participate in our studies, we will keep striving to actualize the creation of innovative medical technologies and the optimal implementation of clinical research.
