The Dept. of Reprogramming Science changed to the Dept. of Life Science Frontiers

On June 1, the Department of Reprogramming Science has been changed to the Department of Life Science Frontiers.

CiRA announced its vsion for  2030 on April 1 in order to further develop iPS cell research. The department name was changed in consideration of the 3rd goal.   

CiRA's Vision for 2030

1.    Promote iPS Cell Stock and Regenerative Medicine

2.    Develop Drugs for Rare Diseases and Realize Personalized Medicine Using Patient iPS Cells

3.    Create New Frontiers in Life and Medical Sciences with iPS Cell Technology

4.    Build Japan's Best Support Team and Environment for Excellent Research and Develoment

The Dept. of Life Science Frontiers will conduct research to create new fields of life science at the molecular level by utilizing iPS cell technology. For instance, researchers at the department will work on elucidating the pathogenesis of cancer and mechanisms of the immune system and development. In addition, creating new research tools is a goal of this department.
