CiRA 10th anniversary special exhibit at Kyoto University Museum

This year, CiRA is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its foundation. To commemorate, the Kyoto University Museum is exhibiting "The Journey of iPS Cell Research - The World of CiRA -" from April to June 2020.

In these 10 years, CiRA has grown from an institute of approximately 150 staff members to one of 600. It has also pushed forward research toward clinical applications from iPS cell research, which is a testament to the hard work done by its staff.

This special exhibit will give an overview of the institute's history and future challenges. By highlighting the people who work at CiRA, the exhibit gives visitors a chance to learn about the different experts and equipment needed for iPS cell research. The exhibit also allows visitors the chance to experience what it is like being a researcher and the opportunity to share their comments about CiRA and iPS cells.

We look forward to your visit.
