The Best Medical Network in Asia

The basic research of SCHU has been carried out mostly by faculty members of the Asan main campus, whereas clinical researches are being carried out at the 4 university hospitals.
The aim of SIMS is to promote both basic and translational research with special emphasis on multidisciplinary collaboration among clinicians, basic bioscientists, and bioengineers.
