About J-CCRC

J-CCRC stands for Japan Consortium of Clinical Research Core Hospital.

The Clinical Research Core Hospital is a hospital that plays a central role in international standards of clinical research and investigator-initiated clinical trials in order to promote high-quality clinical research and trials required for the development of innovative pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and medical technologies, etc. originating in Japan. The certification system was launched on April 1, 2015 as a clinical research core hospital system based on the Medical Care Act.
Subsequently, in order to promote global clinical research in Japan, Osaka University Hospital and National Cancer Center Hospital have been assigned as the promoting base in the global clinical research development project conducted by Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development (AMED) and have been developing the system for implementing and supporting global clinical research.

J-CCRC was established with the purpose of strengthening collaboration between clinical research core hospitals and promoting efficient research and development.
It consists of 14 medical institutions in Japan that have been approved as clinical research core hospitals.(as of July 1, 2021)


Academic seeds in Japan save the world

J-CCRC has promoted overseas business development of academic projects for pharmaceuticals, medical devices, regenerative medicine products, etc. in Japan through global clinical research. In order to further promote multinational clinical research by Academia, under the mission of "Academic seeds in Japan save the world," we will continue our activities with the following three goals:

  • Actively provide information to researchers abroad
  • Accelerate joint research with foreign countries by releasing registered projects
  • Establish a system that can respond to requests for collaborative research from researchers abroad.


To achieve early practical application of Academic Seeds
through promotion and support of global clinical research.
