The Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) has released a video interview with our CEO.
JETRO has released a promotional video to introduce the innovation ecosystem in the life science field at the center of western Japan, Kansai region to the world. Together with Bayer in Kobe and AstraZeneca in Osaka, SCAD (Stem Cell & Device Laboratory, Inc.) in Kyoto was introduced in the promotional video.
Kensuke Kato, PhD, CEO of SCAD, is interviewed and explains an overview of the company's activities, development of iPS cell-based disease model cells for rare diseases, and drug discovery using these cells.

The paper is about a study by Japanese researchers including Associate Professor Ikuo Suzuki of Tohoku Institute of Technology, our technical advisor, and ETH Zurich. It stated that by culturing iPS-derived neurons in three dimensions on oriented fibers using our cell device, the functionality is enhanced compared to two-dimensional culture, and that it is extremely effective in functional analysis of nerve cell populations.
