Our institute represents the optimal
environment for developing new and effective treatments
for cancer and diabetes. We have constructed an infrastructure
that maximizes the success of our research on human
metabolic diseases. Our institute is working in conjunction
with Gachon University of Medicine and Science, the
Neuroscience Research Center, the Clinical Research
Center that is currently under construction, as well
as other research institutions in order to fulfill
our designated purpose. We consider taking advantage
of research environments that have proved efficient
in the past a valuable mechanism in the development
of our institution.
Henceforth, our research institute will use this
infrastructure as a foundation for cancer diagnosis,
treatment, and prevention. Through clinical and
basic research we will delve not only into the basic
biology of cancer and diabetes but also into the
cure and prevention of these diseases in order to
develop into this nation’s leading research institute.
The Goals of the Institute
To construct innovative
methods of cancer diagnosis, treatment,
and prevention through clinical and basic
research in order to develop into our
nation’s leading research facility in
cancer prevention and basic cancer biology.
To emphasize research in the five following
domains: tumor immunology, cancer diagnosis
via genetics and clinical proteomics,
cancer development via biology and virology,
cancer prevention by developing new drugs
via medicinal therapy and pediatric cancer.
To develop new treatments for a variety
of recurrent, metastatic cancer.
To contribute to the development of
main research between institutes on a
international level and of science on
the regional level
To meet the needs of local patients
and those abroad through a widespread
system of mutual collaboration between
experts in the field for the development
of cancer treatment, prevention programs
and patient training.
To develop superior prevention, diagnosis
and treatment of cancer as well as industrialization
using basic research results as a basis.
To establish an industrialized
bioengineering system and an industrialized
cancer research and treatment system
To lay a foundation focusing on the
diagnosis, cause, and prevention of diabetes
in addition to accomplishing clinical
To construct a system that emphasizes
personal health consciousness, treatment/prevention
programs and rehabilitation that
meets the needs of local and international
diabetes patients through the collaboration
of field experts.
To create community programs that provide
the most up-to-date and innovative methods
of patient training, support, examinations
and treatments for diabetes patients of
To perform efficient research
and develop new dietary therapies
To match specific treatment programs
for individual patients and his or her
specific physical and mental needs.
To develop new diabetes treatments
as well as a system for the prevention
of long-term complications.
