The Development Center for Biotechnology (DCB) of Taiwan is a nonprofit organization founded in 1984, based on government grants and private donations. DCBs mission is to accelerate the development of Taiwans biotech-pharma industry, by accomplishing the main objectives of building infrastructures, developing key technologies, promoting cooperation and industrialization, and training talented workforces, in coordination with governmental, industrial, and academic institutions. DCB is dedicated to realizing the vision of becoming a "Leading Organization for Resource Integration, Value Creation and Biopharmaceutical Development". This is to be achieved by building world-caliber infrastructures, establishing key technologies for preclinical development, and fostering growths of highly-trained technology and business teams. In the long run, these efforts should lead to success stories of new drug development in Taiwan, and result in vigorous growth and prosperity for Taiwans biotech-pharma industry.
DCB adds values through preclinical development efforts ranging from medicinal chemistry and lead optimization to pharmacology and safety studies, which eventually lead to IND-filings and approvals. The resulting drug candidates are then licensed out to the "next-runner" in the relay - companies in the biotech-pharma industry - for clinical trials and the ultimate goal of product commercialization. In response to customer needs, DCB also facilitates technology cooperation and product commercialization processes, by employing suitable business models covering: patent licensing, technology transfer, strategic alliance, research collaboration, contract service, and spin-out venture. The objective is to help create win-win opportunities for partnership stakeholders with optimized coordination and integration of resources in Taiwan, and eventually, to help domestic companies expand business in the global market.
