To advance medicine and save more lives.
Every step we take builds the future of healthcare.
It is happening at Asan Institute for Life Sciences.
Asan Foundation was established to help the most underprivileged of the society, by offering the best medical services
The foundation has been building modern hospitals and providing medical care to rural population suffering from various diseases due to the lack of hospitals nearby. Since the opening of Asan Medical Center in 1989, Asan Foundation has been contributing to medical advancement of Korea as well as providing welfare services.
The Asan Institute for Life Sciences was established in 2011 as a global bio-cluster which can lead the sustainable development of future medicine.
Bringing together scientists and physicians to solve the critical problems in human health, we are the nation’s leading center for biomedical research, based on our clinical excellence.
With outstanding basic and clinical research investigators, and an environment tightly linking between research and healthcare to patients, we are making the utmost efforts to advance life science research as well as to improve global healthcare.
With the open innovation platform and global network, our investigators are teaming up and collaborating with other academic institutions and bio-industry. Together we explore new ways to cure, control, and prevent disease.
Biomedical Research Center is running high technology research laboratories and conducting basic and pre-clinical research for new drug discovery. The center also provides genetically engineered animals and environment for testing new surgical techniques.
Core Labs are a group of laboratories dedicated primarily to support a variety of research. Equipped with top notch technology, Core Labs provide specialized analytical platforms to investigators.
Bio-imaging Center offers integrated bio-imaging services for new drug development with its superb imaging infrastructure including animal PET and MR.
Clinical Research Center is fully equipped with the world-class infrastructure and personnel endeavoring to improve clinical research by quality assuring research support and collaborative activities with industry for biomedical innovations to benefit patients.
As the Asia pacific region emerges into the spotlight of drug development, Clinical Trial Center is taking a step from a national accredited Global Center of Excellence to an internationally recognized hub of clinical trial excellence.
Biomedical Engineering Research Center aims to develop advanced medical devices, robotics, bio-materials and automation systems utilizing Asan Medical Center’s clinical platform and by collaborating with innovative global partners including Hyundai Heavy Industry.
Stem Cell Center, established to develop cell therapy products for many diseases,
is leading various research programs in atopic disease, hair loss and organ transplantation based on mesenchymal stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells, and embryonic stem cells.
Bio Resource Center stores and manages human blood, cells, tissues, and body fluids collected from patients, and provides those samples to scientists for their research. Management and distribution protocol is done with ethical and fair manner.
Human Research Protection Center and Institutional Review Board strive to maintain the highest standard in the protection of human research participants and the study itself.
R&D Commercialization Center guides our investigators to commercialize their research outcomes.
Department of Convergence Medicine combines different knowledge and technologies with medical research for comprehensive medical advancement.
For better life, for the future of medicine,
Every member of Asan Institute for Life Sciences does not stop making the utmost efforts by advancing the cure of disease. We will set new standards in healthcare research, and bringing together investigators and clinicians from different disciplines will make us reach our goals faster.
We are determined to make a great success in basic, translational, and clinical research. We shall set the gold standard of bio-cluster in Korea, and bring the future closer.
