      1. Outlines/Features of Research NCBN was formally established in 2011. Each National Center has collected fine bio-resources and their associated medical records in collaboration with affiliated institutions, and has vigorously performed joint research with the academic and private organizations. It copes with not only basic research but also research of drug discovery, and pursues it toward the bed-side, clinical application.
      2. Differences with Conventional/Competitive Technologies The National Center Biobank Network (NCBN) is composed of 6 National Centers and plays a key role in a national undertaking of biobank. NCBN has three distinctive features: (1) collection of tissues and body fluids from patients, (2) possession of fine, traceable medical records and (3) collaborative efforts of hospital and research institute on planning and dissemination of medical-care policy.
      3. Expected Applications In the use of bio-resources and their associated medical records that are collected in NCBN, personalized medicine and genomic drug discovery constitute a principal application field. Research of personalized medicine is undertaken to find a clue linking disease and genetic/genomic information, while that of genomic drug discovery is followed to pursue the underlying mechanisms and therapeutics.
