Department of Research and Development

By supporting research at multiple levels, the Department of Research & Development promotes a number of projects that will lead to the development of new methods for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of socially significant illnesses such as cancer and lifestyle-related diseases. These projects, which will translate important research results in basic medical science into medical technologies to be applied in clinical practices, are referred to as Translational Research (TR). These TR projects will enable medical providers to promptly provide advanced care, and facilitate local development by introducing new medical care-related life science industry to this region.

Through this work, we are exerting our utmost efforts to help improve the health of the citizens of Yokohama City. We greatly appreciate your understanding and assistance.
