Opening of state-of-the-art campus in Jeongneung and Anam
Following KU-MAGIC Project ONE, Korea University will launch KU-MAGIC Project Zero (advanced convergence medical center) to strengthen ties between the natural sciences, humanities and social sciences, medical school, health sciences and Anam Hospital. KU-MAGIC will become a global complex for biomedical research innovation and commercialization.
Disease-targeted Multi-core System
Establishment of a disease-targeted multi-core system
Cause, Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment Convergence Research
Systematic research from cause to treatment
Innovative solutions for overcoming diseases
KU-MAGIC will introduce a disease-targeted research system to support R&I across all stages of care - cause, prevention, diagnosis and treatment. The establishment of a multidisciplinary convergence R&I system will blur the existing boundaries of medical divisions and drive advancements in convergence research and innovation. KU-MAGIC will establish a multi-core system that strategically targets specific diseases and engage in intensive R&I focusing on viruses, infectious diseases, cancer, brain diseases, neurological diseases, heart diseases, emergency medicine, disaster trauma and musculoskeletal diseases.
Establishment of a universal medical platform
Global networking and collaboration
Based on its past networking with renowned universities through university associations such as U21 and APRU, Korea University will expand its global network for R&I and commercialization through KU-MAGIC.
Medical development from cooperation
Global networking will not only help build a universal platform for medical services but also contribute to sustainable social development. Through investment and research cooperation with biomedical companies, KU-MAGIC also seeks to enhance the core competitiveness of Korea.
