Research Outline

For an activation of clinical studies, the implementation of translational-research as a bridge from basic research achievement concerning the diseases to clinical research was strongly required. Kampo medicines (crude drugs and kampo formulations) have been used for the treatment of various pathological conditions or diseases based on the experience knowledge. Today when people want to take evidence-based medicine, it is understandably required to replace the experience knowledge with scientific evidence.
The aim of this division is to contribute to medicine through bridging the differences between the promising seeds of basic researches on kampo medicines and clinical applications.
