2018) in November.


More than 30 speakers from industry and government discussed new clinical trial issues, including guests from the U.S., Germany, South Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Vietnam, Hong Kong and China. Top Taiwanese academics in attendance also initiated several clinical trial collaborations.

Deputy Minister of Health and Welfare Syue Ruei-yuan and Taiwan Food and Drug Administration Director Shou-Mei Wu were among REACTA 2018’sspeakers

TMU showcased Taiwan’s clinical trial capabilities and discussed the university’s competitive advantages in this area. As clinical trial development is accelerating globally, university leaders emphasized the advantages of pursuing trials at TMU and its hospitals, particularly its programs to cultivate leaders of internationally initiated trials. The meeting organizers invited principal investigators at TMU to discuss their experiences with such trials. The event resulted in collaborations with Southeast Asian countries also interested in hosting joint trials.
