Development Center for Biotechnology
The Development Center for Biotechnology (DCB) of Taiwan is a non-profit organization supported by the Department of Industrial Technology, Ministry of Economic Affairs. DCB’s objective is to advance Taiwan's biotech-pharma industry by building infrastructure, developing key technologies, and train talented workforces in coordination with government, industry, and academic institutions. In line with Taiwan's current biotech-pharma development policy, which emphasizes value-addition and knowledge-basis, DCB positions itself as a "Preclinical Value-Adding R&D Center for Biopharmaceuticals". This role is to be fulfilled by devoting concerted R&D efforts on protein, small molecule and botanical drug leads in the preclinical stage of development and setting top priorities for attaining Investigational New Drug approvals by domestic and foreign regulatory agencies.
