iPS Cell Research Fund FY 2020 Financial Report

Last fiscal year the iPS Cell Research Fund collected nearly 4.9 billion yen from approximately 30,000 donations. In addition, the fund received many recurring gifts and bequests.

Considering the transfer of some funds to the CiRA Foundation in April 2020, the iPS Cell Research Fund had a balance of over 13.2 billion yen as of the end of FY 2020 (March 31, 2021).

This money is being used to convert iPS cell research into innovative treatments. The total expenditure from the fund is 530 million yen, which is 170 million yen less than last year.

The iPS Cell Research Fund is critical to keep talented staff at CiRA and to continue our progress in iPS cell research. Your support is a key to our goal of bringing iPS cell technology to the bedside.
