    [Heart failure monitoring system]
    Heart failure progresses with repeated hospitalizations. By RST, we aim to detect the exacerbation of heart failure at home at an early stage, prevent hospitalization by early treatment, and suppress the progression of heart failure.

    [Sleep measurement]
    RST is linked to brain waves and can measure the depth of sleep, so we aim to use it for health management.

    [The others]
    HeartLab Inc is also developing the other patent application technologies also.

Inner Resource .Inc

Major field:Assisting businesses, Rental Laboratories and offices

Miner field:Distributer

Miner field:IT

We help scientists devote themselves to their works, with simplifying research-involved tasks by develoring project-management system “reprua


We started with the mission of ‘’creating the world that enable scientists devoting themselves to their works’’.
We are developing the specialized project-managing system ‘’reprua’’ to optimize operating efficiencies of researching projects such as purchase and inventory management.

Product / Service / PR

    We, Inner Resource, Inc. aim to create the ideal atmosphere for researchers to be more concentrated within their research projects by the means of upgrading their surroundings. One of the most time-consuming tasks is from requirement from science research grants (such as KAKENHI) and it costs much against researchers. Purchase and inventory control, for example, require annoying procedures such as the requirement of several competitive quotes from suppliers and approval of purchase by the superior, which can be solved with our reprua system. Our reprua system enables management of deals within less time-consumption on cloud, as well as cumbersome vouchers are no longer needed, hence the audit of research expenses is far more easily made with reprua. Not only functional, but it is user-friendly because it is made with reference to the very researchers who suffer from annoying procedures. Until now the number of customers grow up to a hundred with many of them high satisfaction, among wide field of research; academics, hospitals, bio-ventures and drug manufacturer.

MiCAN Technologies Inc.

Major field:Drug discovery

Miner field:Regenerative medicine

Miner field:Contract research

We contribute to infectious disease research and safety evaluation through provision of special blood cells produced using regenerative medicine technology.


Our technology allows us to induce differentiation of iPS and ES cells into immature blood cells, and we provide them as young red blood cell-like cells (Mpv), useful for drug discovery research of Vivax malaria, and as immature dendritic cells (Mylc), useful for virus research such as dengue and zika fever. In 2020 we developed a new cell product specialized for research on the new coronavirus (COVID-19) and started providing it to researchers all over the world.

Nexuspiral Inc.

Major field:Drug discovery

Miner field:Regenerative medicine

Research and development of oligonucleotides therapeutics using precise PODiR genome editing technology.


Nexuspiral is a venture company established to socially implement the results of academic research. We aim to transform the discovery of cutting-edge science and technology into social value. The PODiR system enables precise genome editing without the use of proteins. It is expected that direct editing of the targeted gene will enable in-vivo editing without using viral vectors or exogenous proteins.

Product / Service / PR

    From the mechanism study of drug resistance in Pseudomonas aeruginosa, it was found that a gene is created by a specific deletion in an overlapping sequence (PODiR sequence). These phenomena are universal regardless of the species and cell type, and it was shown that genome editing is possible with a completely different system from the conventional genome editing. Applying PODiR technology, we are developing oligonucleotide therapeutics for genome editing without exogenous proteins.
