Our mission: To improve patient care with scientific leadership and high ethical standards through innovative and collaborative clinical research

Our History

Chiba University Hospital, founded in 1874, has a long tradition of excellence in healthcare services with about 500,000 outpatient visits per year, and is recognized as one of Japan’s leading clinical research institutions contributing to the development of medicine.

The Chiba University Clinical Research Center (CCRC) was established at Chiba University Hospital in the year 2000 for the advancement of clinical research. The CCRC has conducted extensive clinical trials with its professional expertise, and in 2022 alone, the CCRC executed over 100 clinical trials.

In 2012, the Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare (MHLW) launched the 5 Year Clinical Trial Activation Plan and designated the top five hospitals showing initiative in developing clinical research in Japan as “core research centers.” The CCRC is one of these centers, and we place a high priority on creating a productive and unique clinical trial environment by strengthening our ARO through collaborations with regulatory agencies and university hospitals in Japan, Asia, the United States, and Europe.
