“The key to developing biomedical models and future strategies to lead the Fourth Industrial Revolution is a cooperation between medical institutions, which are fundamental in clinical and research fields,”

Helixrus CEO Jason Kang also said. “We are happy to build a health platform that can protect the health of patients through cooperation with Myongji Hospital, a representative hospital that is conducting open innovation.
