지역임상시험센터 소장

Since our inception in 2009 as a government-designated Regional Clinical Trial Center in Busan, we have progressed rapidly in scope and vision. In 2013 we were awarded our second government designation as a Global Center of Excellence in Clinical Trials. Our philosophy is built on the idea that progress in clinical science can only occur with a strong foundation of quality assurance, the highest respect for ethical standards and an absolute focus on scientific rigor. To meet these needs, we stress the importance of maintaining international standards and dynamic education programs for our staff.

As one of the major centers for clinical research in an area encompassing seven-million residents, Dong-A University Hospital strives to engage with the local community via patient outreach programs and the latest in web and cell phone technology. Having outgrown our primary facilities,

we are pleased to announce our relocation to a brand new Heart-Brain Center upon completion of construction in June 2012. We attribute our success to an outstanding ability to work as teams that effectively focus on clearly defined goals. Actively seeking partners from throughout the world, our center is rapidly being recognized as an example of excellence in the fast-paced industry of North East Asian clinical trials. The Dong-A University Hospital CTC is an attractive solution for your clinical trial needs for a number of reasons. With FERCAP accreditation achieved in 2010, the latest in cutting-edge technology and ready access to a large patient pool, our key partners can provide expert advice in neurology, cardiology, oncology and other disciplines where a specific focus is required. Our center places a high degree of importance on providing frequent opportunities for education and training by hosting annual seminars and conferences for industry members and the future leaders of medicine.

We invite you to learn more about our center as we rise to meet the challenges of tomorrow. Through careful progress and cautious analysis, together we can aim for new heights in our mission statement:

“To benefit humanity through excellence in clinical research.”
