Tri-Service General Hospital (TSGH) singed memorandum of understand (MOU) on medical research cooperation with Trace Element Institute for UNESCO on November 15th, 2018. After the signing and taking effect of the MOU between Tri-Service General Hospital and Trace Element-Institute for UNESCO, both institutions will kickstart mutually beneficially research cooperation via programs of health/medical information exchange, personnel/research exchange, academic seminars, occupational training workshops, and patient referrals. Going forward, both institutions aim to scale up scope and sphere of exchange and cooperation over time in a bid to jointly construct a platform for both bio-medical testing and treatment that will benefit the MOU signing institutions, researchers, clinicians, patients, and the much broader international stakeholders.
Dr. Skalny Anatoly V., Vice President of Trace Element Institute for UNESCO has stated that the MOU signed with Tri-Service General Hospital will enable the construction of a comprehensive bio-medical testing and treatment platform in the Asia Pacific region. He further said that with the complementarity of research capability and capacity between TSGH and Trace Element Institute, researchers from both institutions can introduce and adopt hair follicle trace element testing technologies developed onto clinical applications and provide physicians solutions of early diagnosis, therapy options, prognosis determination, and ultimately assist patients to identify and best possible courses of treatment.
Via its cooperation and exchange with Trace Element Institute for UNESCO, Tri-Service General Hospital (TSGH) plans to apply test results derived from the joint bio-medical testing center on clinical treatment for patients seeking care in TSGH. In the near term, Tri-Service General Hospital medical teams hope to utilize information gleaned from the joint bio-medical testing research to detect patients with abnormal physiological parameters early on and to intervene accordingly to significantly shorten treatment time and pursue best possible treatment outcome for those patients , in tandem with TSGH’s existing programs of labor occupational screening/health check, newborn screening, and medical fitness screening for military personnel.
