Aiming to create new “seeds” of healthcare for a healthier and longer-lived society
Today, Japan is at a crossroads, confronted with a rapidly aging population, diminishing birth rates, a shrinking labor force, and increasing medical and nursing expenses for the elderly. Many Japanese are affected by cancer, senile dementia, diabetes, heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, and age-related functional disorders.
At the Institute of Biomedical Research and Innovation (IBRI), we consider that the way to overcome these challenges and open up a bright future for Japan is through realization of a society where people live longer while remaining healthy. Toward this goal, the IBRI carries out fundamental research mainly in three domains, clinical immunology, aging, and regenerative medicine; with research oriented toward the development of diagnostic and therapeutic methods.
