In addition, Research strategy team has been pursuing to open innovation through internal and external collaboration and technology adoption.

Pharmaceutically Modified Drug Team

We have the capability of evaluation from the drug screening to the selection of new drug candidates including enhanced pharmaceutical, chemical and natural product using in vitro/in vivo efficacy study, safety and ADME study in early stage of new drug development. Also, in late stage, we evaluate the non-clinical study for the human clinical trials of newly selected drug candidates. Based on the above excellent capacity, we will show our ability to contribute to the enhancement of human health and welfare by developing a creative and superior medicine.

Analysis Research Team

We support the efficient analysis research of dosage research with superior personnel, experiment equipments (analytic equipments) and accumulated know-how.
We also provide analytic reviewing methods and standards by medicine types through the development and optimization of completed medical supplies such as new materials and types.

Botanical Drug Research Team

We focus on the development of more standardized, and safe and effective botanical drugs(Herbal medicine) by utilizing a variety of extraction and purification process from natural products such as plant resources, algae, microorganism and those complex, etc. And our goal is to be the leader of botanical drug in global market as well as domestic.

Preclinical Research & Development team

The team identifies the new compounds for the new chemical, herbal and incrementally modified drugs through screening and conducts in vitro/in vivo efficacy and safety study for the selection of promising drug candidates. In addition, with the exceptional capabilities in the new drug development including nonclinical for the active substance, the team is dedicated to contributing to the improvement of human health and welfare through the development of drugs with better efficacy and safety.
