Message from the Misao Fujita Lab.

Research on creating human organs in animal bodies or artificially creating germ cells by using iPSCs is now going on.
How far can the community allow such research to go on? If such research is allowed, what kind of regulations are necessary?
We are only division for humanities and social sciences in CiRA and challenging ethical issues to which solutions cannot be found only through science.
Several faculty members with diverse academic backgrounds will kindly guide and lead you in a good environment where advanced scientific research is conducted and regulations are formulated.


Message from the Jusaku Minari Lab. 

Let’s think together about the “social meaning and values ​​surrounding cutting-edge life science research.”
