Core Protein Resources Center

Core Protein Resources Center

Resources Service Center, Only One Step Away from Business

Many pharmaceutical companies in Korea have tried to develop powerful biomedicines over the last ten years. Recently, the leading conglomerates, mid-sized, and venture companies are achieving magnificent results and exporting large amounts of technology for overseas expansion based on the new medicines. To enter these markets, these small scale companies still have to establish techniques with high level of difficulty. Core Protein Resources Center was established to overcome the technical difficulties, support and strengthen internal competitive power in a short period of time. CPRC has 3 visions, as described below:

1. To support domestic protein bio-pharmaceutical industry, overseas expansion, and market pioneering by maximizing the function of state-of–the-art public research laboratories that has concentrated and upgraded core proteins, facilities, technology and expertise resources

2. To establish innovative supporting system for companies through efficient division of labor. With the system make a better environment that companies focus on their own work and CPRC can provides support many companies at the same time

3. To minimize the risk of research and development of domestic companies following our slogan, “Resources Service Center, Only One Step Away from Business”

Research Goals
  • To provide the best available technology and services to major domestic bio-companies in order to stimulate medical industries based on the four core resources; expertise, facilities, protein, technology resources
  • To create a technology support center that can support companies in an innovative way to minimize the risk through preferential securing of commercially available protein resources and related technologies
