iPS Cell Research Fund

2016 Financial Report

The success of CiRA in fiscal 2016 has resulted in one of the most successful years yet for the iPS Cell Research Fund, as the fund collected nearly 2.4 billion yen (approximately U.S $21 million) from approximately 13,000 donations.

As of March 31, 2017, the iPS Cell Research Fund had a balance of over 7 billion yen. The costs of a research institute like CiRA are immense, so this money has gone a long way to helping us both expand the number of labs devoted to iPS cell research and provide stable funding to run them. Yet the majority of CiRA’s staff remains on fixed-term contracts. The iPS Cell Research Fund is critical to keeping these talented people at CiRA and to continue our progress in iPS cell research.

Your support is key to our goal of taking iPS cells to the clinic.
