    Launch of Taiwan Integrated Biomedical Industrial Center (2020/11/26)

    A new Integrated Biomedical Industrial Center promises to revolutionize Taiwan's biotech industry and bring cutting edge treatments to the country. The Ministry of Economic Affairs says it wants to bring biotech companies and clinicians into close contact through new innovations, including AI-assisted programs. The center will also carry out medical tests and make it easier for biotech developers to work with hospitals.

    Proportional projection shows where this patient's veins are, making an injection easy for the nurse. As technology progresses, it becomes increasingly crucial in medicine. The advent of 5G and artificial intelligence is a major transition for the biotech industry. Working with the Industrial Technology Research Institute, the economics ministry's Industrial Technology department is creating Taiwan's first "Integrated Biomedical Industrial Center," to develop more precise and efficient treatments.

    Using this data, we can help doctors plan out a safe route before an operation, to reduce the length of time in surgery, and the risk of excessive radiation exposure.

    Peng Yu-min
    ITRI deputy director
    All treatments need the integration of data from medical optics and future AI and so on. So, before surgery, we can ascertain the severity of the disease and make a good surgery plan. During the operation, it can remind the doctor which places are in the safe zone, which must be removed, which must not be touched. It will help our doctors perform their job more completely. Of course the most important thing is that patients will receive better care.

    The ribbons are pulled back with a flourish to symbolize the center's official launch. With its three large-scale certification labs, and four imitation hospital rooms, this is the first cross-disciplinary smart medical lab in Taiwan. It's attracted prestigious international biomedical investors, and aims to integrate supply chains, assisting medical professionals in managing patients' health and providing remote care. It's a turning point for the industry.

    Chiou Chyou-Huey
    MOEA Industrial Tech Dept. head
    In the past, many factories that produced high-level medical products found it hard to work together with hospitals or clinical practitioners. Our first goal is to resolve that. Secondly, hospitals can't provide their own integration, testing and application of high-tech equipment onsite. Thirdly, when individual firms struggle alone, we have less chance of integrating the industry on a high level.

    The biotech industry is valued at over NT$1 billion and is one of the government's six core strategic industries. It's investing heavily in this collaboration between industry, officialdom and academia, hoping Taiwan will continue to blaze a pioneering medical trail.
