Kazuki Ide, RPh, PhD
Uehiro Research Division for iPS Cell of Ethics Center for iPS Cell Research and Application(CiRA)

I have broad research experiences in 1) experimental research (e.g. neurosciences and behavioral pharmacology), 2) clinical research (e.g. interventional and observation studies using real-world databases), and 3) health policy science mainly focusing on Ethical, Legal, and Social Issues (ELSI). In the Uehiro Research Division for iPS Cell Ethics, I plan to conduct empirical research focused on applied ethical issues related to iPS cell technologies and regenerative medicine.
