In a bid to fur­ther ex­pand its global re­search net­work, South Korea’s Dae­woong Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal re­cently in­au­gu­rated a new biotech re­search cen­tre at Univer­si­tas In­done­sia (UI), a state uni­ver­sity in De­pok, In­done­sia. Lo­cated in the Uni­ver­sity of In­done­sia, the

Bio Tech­nol­ogy Re­search Cen­tre will serve as a col­lab­o­ra­tive space where pro­fes­sors and stu­dents will de­velop bi­o­logic drugs in­clud­ing epi­der­mal growth fac­tor and growth hor­mones.

More than 150 ex­ec­u­tives and govern­ment of­fi­cials cel­e­brated the open­ing of the UI-Dae­woong BioTech­nol­ogy Re­search Cen­tre. The par­tic­i­pants in­cluded Jeon Se­ung-ho, CEO of Dae­woong Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal, Maura Linda Si­tang­gang, di­rec­tor gen­eral of Health Min­istry of In­done­sia, Kim Chang-beom, Korean Am­bas­sador to In­done­sia, and Muham­mad Anies, Rec­tor of UI. The cen­tre aims to sup­port the lo­cal in­dus­try and col­lab­o­rate with In­done­sian pro­fes­sors for stud­ies and re­search. The cen­tre will also team up with UI’s Col­lege of Pharmacy to of­fer schol­ar­ships and train­ing pro­grammes for bio­phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal ex­per­tise. Dae­woong would pro­vide wellper­form­ing stu­dents with a train­ing op­por­tu­nity at the com­pany’s main re­search in­sti­tute in Yon­gin, Gyeonggi Prov­ince, to deepen their knowl­edge.
