The Engineering Research Center of Digital Medicine (ERCDM) of Shanghai Jiao Tong University is the first engineering research center of the Ministry of Education, which focuses on the innovative research and the development of Digital Medicine. Approved by the Ministry of Education for construction in 2006, ERCDM aims at the innovation and technology development with independent right of intellectual property, researching on the key and core technology in digital medicine, playing the role as the bridge between clinic research and industrial applications, and serving to promote the development of the high ranking medical technology industry in China.
There are three major R&D platforms in the ERCDM: the Platform of R&D of Digital Technology of Medical Implants, the Platform of Digital Clinical Technology, and the Platform of Digital Medical Equipment. The headquarters of the ERCDM, occupying a space of 1,500 square meters, is based at the Med-X Institute at SJTU Xuhui Campus. The headquarters, together with the ERCDM laboratories at SJTU Minhang Campus and the ERCDM clinical research groups in the affiliated hospitals of SJTU School of Medicine, constitutes an integrated platform. Based on this large platform, resources can be efficiently shared, while the research and education of digital medicine as well as the industrial production of digital medical products also can be integrated.
