An international center for regenerative medicine was launched Friday by the Boao International Hospital at the Boao Lecheng International Medical Tourism Pilot Zone.
The center will conduct research in areas such as precision cancer therapy, regenerative medicine, genetic therapy, functional medicine and reproductive medicine, and transform their research results into clinical use.
The center, which is also building a service-sharing platform for large-size medical equipment and technologies, aims to be a major base for regenerative medicine and the training of high-level talent in the country.
Japan’s Oda Harunori, a leading expert worldwide in anti-aging and anti-cancer cell technology, has been named head of the hospital, which is bringing in more top medical talent to engage in medical research and services in Hainan.
Wu Zuze, an academician with the Chinese Academy of Sciences and a leading expert on hematopoietic stem cells, said the opening of the center marks the beginning of a new era of regenerative medicine in Boao and Hainan province as a whole.
