Clinical Research Unit

This section is mainly involved in managing clinical trials of newly developed drugs, which aims to gain approval from PMDA and MHLW. Recently, this section has expanded its operation to include support to the clinical intervention trials, which are not necessarily linked to approval. Fourteen clinical research coordinators (CRCs) including 3 full-time staffs (3 pharmacist, 2 clinical laboratory technicians, and 4 nurses) work with the attending doctors to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of new drugs and / or specific treatments, paying close attention to patients' privacy and safety, as well as their human rights.
