The laboratory solely dedicated to the Tissue/Organ Fabrication has been
opened since 22nd of May 2015 at Keio University School of Medicine, Tokyo
- The development of clone pigs and focus on an”in vivo bioreactor”, where human stem cells can transdifferentiate in their organogenesis.
The scafforld-based organ regeneration, where human progenitor cells can
develop in vitro. Using these technologies, we are aiming at making the
transplantable organ without donors based on bioehics (here).
- Academic-industrial collaboration projects are supported by the society. Medical treatments cannot become widely used unless pharmaceuticals and
medical equipment are supplied by companies. For a company to conduct research
with extremely high obstacles from an exploratory stage is likely to pose
great risks. Nevertheless, we are apt to advance projects in a transparent
manner with companies that fully understand how research on fabricating
transplantable organs would contribute to medical science and healthcare
across the nations.
- Prof. Kobayashi has been in collaboration with various centers for research
in order to further expand cross-border academic research activities (here). He has been also applying many patents to protect the right of the co-operated

to accelerate our researches with the aim to contribute to the society.
