Center philosophy

With the main missions of "support for clinical research" and "education related to clinical research," we will accumulate know-how through research support. We aim to improve the quality of clinical research at Teikyo University through education and support.

Head of Center
Professor Tamio Teramoto

It goes without saying that the results of clinical research are needed in society in order to provide better medical care. However, we recognize that there is currently a lack of evidence originating in Japan, or in fact very little evidence. In order to overcome this current situation, I think university research institutions should make more effective use of their own clinical research results.
At our university, we established the Teikyo Teikyo Academic Research Center (TARC) to take advantage of resource consolidation, such as the establishment of Graduate School of Public Health and the relocation of Faculty of Pharma-Science to Itabashi Campus, to engage in clinical research across the university. did. TARC is an official organization that supports clinical research by organically collaborating with internal resources as well as external organizations. We provide a variety of support needed to carry out clinical research, including biostatistical consulting on what kind of research design should be used to test clinical hypotheses. Our university will help researchers who want to conduct clinical research and disseminate evidence that contributes to better medical care to the world.

It was established in February 2012 to bring together the university's resources and engage in clinical research across the university.
We carry out research and education related to clinical research from a global perspective in order to embody the ``Healthy Hospital,'' a circle of security and trust created by patients, medical professionals, and society, which is the basic philosophy of Teikyo University Hospital. Through the development of new pharmaceuticals, medical devices, testing methods, diagnostic methods, and treatments, we will contribute broadly to society through advances in medicine, healthcare, and health.
Specifically, from an academia's perspective, we aim to ``promote university-led clinical research'', ``dissemination of evidence to local communities'', and ``globally deploy practical EBM'', with the aim of serving as a model case in Japan. We aim to build a center that practices world-standard research and education.
