The global leading platform of Regenerative Medicine on Cell Technology : The Enterprise Fund for the Cell Technological Research and Regenerative Medicine is based on the advance technology, professional staffing, skill proficiency, resources and management experience of the Medisun Medical Group. Further enhanced by the quality and scientific research platform offered by the Tsinghua University, for the collaboration with the School of Medicine and the Tsinghua Chang Gung Memorial Hospital and other affiliated institutions. To focus on cell technology and cell therapy in the area of education, training, scientific research, clinical transformation and industrial development. Through the combination of the above strong elements, to reinforce the professional leadership of the School of Medicine of Tsinghua University.
The two parties will actively cooperate with the integration of professionals and the high-quality resources, to build the institute as:
* The world’s leading cell technology platform to support the training of professionals
* The world’s leading cell technology platform for research, development and clinical transformation
* The world’s leading platform for international cooperation for development of cell technology
* China as the most influential authority on cell technology and related laws, regulations and operational standards
Cell Technology and Regenerative Medicine Enterprise Investment Fund
At the time of setting up the research institute, Tsinghua University and Medisun Medical Group, National Investment Funds Limited (The Directors of Medisun Medical Group) also co-sponsored the establishment of Tsinghua Medisun Cell Technology and Regenerative Enterprise Investment Fund. The movement will attract more financial ventures to participate and invest the technology for further research, development and clinical transformation. The increase of the social capital can increase the investment in scientific research, and reduce the burden on the government and university’s expenses. This is to ensure the scientific research is carried out normally, to achieve the scientific research objectives. Secondly, the investment from the enterprise can motivate the research staff for better efficiency of the scientific research and to enhance the productivity. Thereby to enhance the brand value and social benefits.
The Enterprise Investment Fund will be included in the Tsinghua University School of Medicine’s overall industrial strategy.

From the early stage of the development of the cell technology and cell therapy has already heading a medical revolution. In compare with the traditional drug therapy and surgery, the cell technology has develop a new means as the third choice of treatment. With advance improvement, it can has a broad market and potential for further expansion. The General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out at the National Science and Technology Innovation Conference that stem cell research, early diagnosis of cancer markers, human genome sequencing and other basic scientific breakthroughs, all these can become an influential factors for China to face the world. Enterprises place an important force for integration of science, technology and economic growth. As the investment on research, development and transformation will become the main drive of the technological innovation.
