The Center for Advanced Medicine and Clinical Research (CAMCR) adheres to the basic principle of Nagoya University Hospital “We will contribute to society through medical care, education, and research”, and pioneers next-generation medical technologies and care through harmonization of translational science and regulatory science. The Department of Advanced Medicine was newly established in 2018, and a new start was made with the Data Coordinating Center under that. The CAMCR aims to achieve self-sustainable advanced medical development through virtuous circles of (1) development process, (2) human exchange, (3) funds, (4) intelligence, (5) network, and (6) clinical data.
Under the strong leadership of the president, director of hospital, director of department, and director of center, CAMCR has 2 major divisions: Advanced Medicine Division and Clinical Research Division. Advanced Medicine Division is primarily in charge of the processes ranging from basic research to first-in-human clinical trials. On the other hand, Clinical Research Division is primarily responsible for the processes subsequent to the initiation of clinical studies and endeavors to manage the processes under ICH-GCP wherever possible in an attempt to ensure the reliability of advanced medicine and investigator-initiated clinical trials.
