The Shizuoka Cancer Center Research Institute promotes R&D in the areas of multi-omics research, cancer diagnosis, immunotherapy and proton-beam therapy, in order to develop new technologies via collaboration among the fields of medicine, nursing and medical engineering. In collaboration with the Pharma Valley Center, the Research Institute promotes the Pharma Valley Project, which aims to form healthcare clusters in the eastern part of the prefecture closely working with medical companies and universities on joint researches with them. As a research policy to promote the project, an equal partnership among industry, academia, hospital staff and researchers is shared by all those participating in the project. A world-class platform for clinical research has been established for creating next-generation medicine and diagnostics. The Research Institute also promotes other core activities; the Cancer Survivorship Research Division and the Nursing Care Research Division develop services and products that would help and support cancer patients and their families. In 2002, Shizuoka Prefecture opened a new comprehensive cancer center, consisting of hospital, research institute, disease management center and secretariat. The center also plays an important role for the Mount Fuji Pharma Valley Project as a core facility in collaboration with the Pharma Valley Center located within. Therefore, it should be noted that the Shizuoka Cancer Center functions as a ‘new healthcare and innovation complex’ for cancer treatment, public health and medical innovation. The Hospital, consisting of 39 divisions with 589 beds, aims to be a world leading medical center through patient-oriented cancer treatment. It features medical professionals from all over Japan, the worlds most advanced proton-beam therapy facilities and the latest medical equipment. To pursue the patient-oriented medical care, it takes a multidisciplinary approach that calls for close collaboration among physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dieticians, physical therapists and other employees. All the professionals constantly share information about patients through the most up-to-date integrated information system, which enables the hospital to create a paperless and filmless work environment.
