Idea: Lecturer Masato NAKAGAWA
Design: Graphic Designer Akio OKUMURA
The logo uses the letters C, i, R and an A to form a human figure representing the CiRA philosophy: "To realize research for people and the ideal of regenerative medicine." The four colors - blue, green, red and black - applied in the logo also symbolize the four defined factors used when first inducing iPS cells, as well as interaction among patients, researchers, clinicians and iPS cells.
Lecturer Masato NAKAGAWA roughed out the idea, and then graphic designer Akio OKUMURA designed the logo.
