Kazuki Sudo, M.D., Ph.D.

The International Translational Research (TR) Section makes use of the human resources and infrastructure of the National Cancer Center to promote international translational research.

One of the main activities is to promote research by improving the infrastructure for translational research. We will also monitor the situation of activities and projects researchers are involved and the updates from regulatory authorities in each country and build a strong network with them. In addition, we will contribute to the promotion of international translational research based on the business development strategies of the industry as well as promoting ancillary research on international therapeutic development.
