Theoretical and practical research on commercialization of science and technology of health care products

We are conducting research on the form of open innovation in biotechnology field where confidentiality is relatively high and corporate collaboration is difficult to proceed. For example, similar to custom-made garments that measure and tailor to the height and body shape of customers, it is entering the era of choosing medicines according to the genetic background and constitution of patients even in the medical field.

For example, conventional medicines, for example, if you are diagnosed with stomach cancer or lung cancer in a single dose, it was common to prescribe medications for the cancer, but the effect was unpredictable and there was a side effect problem. On the other hand, tailored medicine is an epoch – making medical means that precisely diagnoses causal genes and molecules of diseases in each patient and prescribes a specific medicine accordingly (Fig. 1).
