New Hope for Patients. . .


With centers located in the United States, Spain, China and Taiwan, START conducts the world’s largest Phase I medical oncology program. Today, more than 50 percent of cancer patients can be cured with conventional treatments – that is, therapies with a proven response rate. However, there are many patients who do not respond to standard treatment and may be eligible for participation in our Phase I clinical trials program.


START Taipei consists of a team of highly trained physicians and staff with extensive experience in Phase I clinical trials research and who are nationally recognized as thought leaders in cancer research and drug development.

Innovative Technology

START Taipei directs clinical trials of novel anticancer agents using a high quality and innovative information technology infrastructure to ensure accurate and rapid clinical trials in a setting that emphasizes personalized and compassionate clinical care.
