3. To engage with Taiwan’s academic community in advancing a modern and forward-looking collective scholarly vision;
4. To cultivate an intellectual environment that is conducive to the nurturing of young scholars and the recognition of outstanding scholarship in Taiwan; and,
5. To promote international cooperation and scholarly exchanges that will accelerate the overall development of academic research at Academia Sinica and in the Republic of China.

The Biomedical Translation Research Center (BioTReC) was founded in September 2019 at the National Biotechnology Research Park (NBRP) with the aspiration to support the development of biotechnology in Taiwan. The objectives of BioTReC align with government initiatives to accelerate bio-entrepreneurship from early discovery stages to commercialization.

The BioTReC foster growth among innovative pharmaceutical businesses via networking and joint-venture opportunities and to provide access to invaluable R&D and marketing resources. In addition to startups and small businesses, we welcome the installation of mature firms. We adhere to the ideal that dynamic interactions within a diversified portfolio foster a productive exchange of insights and experiences, and we look forward to fruitful results in this ecosystem.
