Center for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine

Director:Hideki Taniguchi Organization/Researchers

Stem cell research has been a focus of attention as medicine of the 21st century replacing artificial organs and organ transplantation therapy, and also has a strong impact on the research field of cancer and other diseases. Center for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine was launched as a core research center for stem cell-based medicine. The Center aims to translate research outcomes of stem cell biology into pre-clinical and clinical studies, and also to innovation of therapeutic approaches to cancer and various diseases.

Division of Stem Cell and Molecular Medicine

Head:Atsushi Iwama | First Building 3F


Stem cells have self-renewal ability and multipotency, and they are responsible for embryonic development and tissue homeostasis. Our laboratory aims at unraveling the molecular basis for their self-renewal ability, exploring the essence behind stem cell biology, and performing cutting-edge research that contributes to establishment of state-of-the-art therapy. We are also working to understand pathogenesis and develop a new treatment of hematological malignancy that arises from stem cell deregulation.

FACS Core Laboratory

First Building Basement


This core laboratory was launched in April 2004 to facilitate stem cell analysis and isolation, as a part of the project supported by Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) "The project for realization of regenerative medicine, the research field for establishment of stem cell bank". Now as one of the core laboratories that supports techniques in International Joint Usage/Research Center, we are supporting cell sorting and analysis using flow cytometry (FCM). We provide user-friendly services with the goal of contributing to progress in cell biology, medical science and stem cell research.
