Clinial Research Institute of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics

Showa University Clinical Research Center for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics has been established at Karasuyama Hospital (Setagaya, Tokyo) on October 6th 2011. The Center has 44 beds for clinical research. And 3 doctors who have broad experience about clinical development, especially Phase 1 trial, will handle clinical trials here. The activities at our center are conducted as official operations of educational corporation of Showa University. Therefore, we are straining to establish the structure that medical development for candidate drugs can be performed from Phase 1 here to Phase 2 (POC, POM etc) by all clinical departments of 9 Showa University hospitals. And also since Showa University is a general medical university, the center will make a contribution to the educational place for students, teaching staff and researchers in Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmaceutical Sciences, and Nursing and Rehabilitation Sciences. In this way, we hope that the center and Showa University will be established to conduct an early and an exploratory phase of drug development in Japan which will contribute to delivering good medical candidates to patients as soon as possible. In addition to that, we also hope that our center will contribute to the development of all persons of the field of medicine.
