Keio CCR was founded in 2006 as an academic research organization within Keio University School of Medicine under the auspices of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) to assume a role in the national improvement of clinical trial infrastructure. Designated by the MHLW in 2009 as one of two centers of excellence to promote global clinical research, Keio CCR plans and supports investigator-initiated, non-NDA clinical trials and observational clinical research, as well as industry-sponsored translational research, registration trials and post-marketing studies.
“Medidata Rave will be key to supporting our strategy of facilitating high-quality clinical research while looking to deliver optimum treatments and improve patient welfare,” said Keio University Center for Clinical Research Professor Yuji Sato MD., PhD.
Keio CCR is upgrading its EDC solution in order to continue to expand, accelerate and improve the quality of its multinational and multicenter clinical studies. Medidata Rave’s investigator-friendly system, which was originally developed for academic clinical trials, will enable Keio CCR to continue to grow its clinical research capabilities.
