Division of Stem Cell Therapy

Head:Hiromitsu Nakauchi | Amgen Hall

Our goal is to "Establish a New Frontier of Stem Cell Therapy by Connecting the Basic Science and Clinical Medicine." We are working to uncover new diseases, elucidating the causes of disease and developing therapeutic modalities by connecting the knowledge and methodology of basic science such as immunology, molecular biology, cell biology and developmental engineering with clinical medicine. We are also actively collaborating with international institutes including Stanford University in the US and Canadian Institutes of Health Research in Canada.
