This program aims to develop fundamental research in Japan and transform it into pharmaceutical approvals and create innovative drugs. It promotes nonclinical studies, which properly bridge basic research with clinical trials; high-quality research, such as clinical research based on science and ethics that are highly likely to be sufficiently guaranteed; and research that aims to improve the state of clinical research and clinical trials.
