Organisation profile

MDIC (Medical Device Innovation Center) is a research organization that devotes to help booming the industry environment for those startup companies in the Medical Devices Industry. Under the leadership of Academia Sinica, Dr. Lai and the Director, Dr. Su, MDIC has been working on intergrating our research team, partner enterprises, venture capital firms and NCKU meidcal center to identify the unmet clinical needs and accordingly invent several value-oriented medical device. Especially with our experience and strengths in the fields of teaching, services, research and creation, MDIC believes that our continuous efforts in the medical device industry will eventually bring a great deal of contribution to Taiwan economy in the long run. By cooperating with the Stanford University on the SC-Si2C SPARK TAIWAN project and accordingly adopting their teaching experience in NCKU Bio-design courses, also collaborating with 益安生醫 which is leaded by Yu-Te Chang (張有德), and partnering with several outstanding NCKU alumni , Dr. Cheng (陳勁初, a leader of a Venture Capital company in Silicon Valley), Dr. Yan (楊耀武) and Dr. Gong (龔行憲), MDIC has gathered enough experience to contribute more value-added and innovative technologies in the Taiwan Medical Device industry.
