The Center for Precision Medicine, which is an integral part of the Seoul National University Bundang Hospital’s Future Innovation Research Department in supporting medical staff with genome education and research support programs, is currently establishing large-scale collections based on the hospital’s human biobank.

At the signing ceremony on November 15thThe tenthJi Soo Kim (Chairman and Chief Research Officer of the Institute of Biomedical Research at Seoul National University Bundang Hospital), Ji Hyun Kim (Chair, Department for Future Innovation Research), Jung Hoon Eun (Director, Center for Precision Medicine), Jinho Kim and Sejeon Lee (Professors At the Center for Precision Medicine), Elsung Lee (CEO of Cipherome), Min Kim (CTO at Cipherome), and others comment on the future direction of personalized medicine using clinic genomic factors.

Given the strong need for tools to organize, screen, and perform genomic and clinical data research and the lack of accessible tools for clinical researchers, Cipherome has commercialized its data analysis development system, the Compass Platform, to enable clinical researchers to conduct complex research. Data science tasks—from statistical analysis to machine learning training—on genomic and clinical data efficiently and quickly. The primary aim is to shorten the time to results of a population-wide extrapolation using UK BioBank data.

Ji-Soo Kim, Head of the Biomedical Research Institute of Seoul National University Bundang Hospital, stated, “Through this MoU with Cipherome, we will actively support research and development in the field of precision medicine based on massive clinical and genomic data. We will continue to strengthen our research capacity to take the lead in the precision medicine market.” Globalism “.

Cipherome CEO Ilsung Lee also said, “Our collaboration with the Biomedical Research Institute of Seoul National University Bundang Hospital is key to achieving the impact and adoption of clinical genomics as the institute plays a key role in advancing the medical industry through research and development of innovative medical technology.” We hope that this MoU will improve the competitiveness of precision medicine research and the capabilities of Seoul National Bundang University Hospital.”
