1. Established Research and Technology Platform

    Based on conducting several long-term integrated research projects. The Campus Collaboration Platform of multi-disciplinary and integration studies of Clinical Medicine and Basic Medical Science have been established.

    1. Disease oriented Study Platforms: osteonecrosis (ON), osteoporosis (OP), bone fracture, cartilage damage, osteoarthritis (OA).
    2. Technology Platforms: development of control-release drug carrier, in vitro testing platform for cytotoxicity and function (stem cells, chondrocyte, osteocyte), animal study platforms (osteoarthritis, bone defect, cartilage defect), orthopaedic imaging and mechanics analysis platform.
  2. Potential of Industry-Academy Cooperation and Translational Medicine

    1. ORC team have been executing the Technology Development Program for Academia of Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) for 3 terms and successfully built up the product R&D mechanisms including industry-academy cooperation, intellectual property right application, technology transfer, etc. The experiences would furthermore strengthen the energy of translational medicine.
    2. The target products of our development meet the goal of our national institutes, such as Si2C (Supra Integration and Incubation Center), STSPB (Southern Taiwan Science Park Bureau, Ministry of Science and Technology), as well as MIRDC (Metal Industries Research & Development Centre) have focused on the development of dental, orthopaedic and biomedical materials and equipments.
    3. Institute for Biotechnology and Medicine Industry, Economic Development Bureau, Kaohsiung City Government and The Southern Taiwan Science Park (STSP), Kaohsiung Science Park have preferred the research center to be a bridge of orthopaedic and dental industry , simultaneously the technology cooperative partner of R&D.
    4. Based on the existing cooperative enterprises, there is a good opportunity for the center to develop more potential partners, and furthermore to strengthen the trend development of orthopaedic materials and drugs with the conduction of projects granted from Technology Development Program for Academia of MOEA, as well as STMDIC (Southern Taiwan Medical Device Industry Cluster).
