Our vision

From Kyoto to the World, and to the Next Generation

We will create breakthroughs in medicine by developing the world’s most advanced basic science,
medical technologies and regenerative medicine with iPS cells originated from Kyoto University.

To those who participate in clinical trials

We respond to you who want to do something for patients waiting for new medicines and for the next-generation medical care.

To development personnel

We can conduct early clinical trials in a variety of disease areas with the support of many clinical departments at Kyoto University Hospital, and provide a strict and high-quality clinical trial settings that is unique to Academia.

To researchers in medical and research institutions

We facilitate speedy and stress-free implementation of early clinical trials through resolving the bothersome tasks.
