MESSAGE

Message from the CEO

Kento Hatase
FOUNDER / CEO
With the advancement of science and technology, people have enriched their lives. I believe researchers have developed science and technology driven by strong and pure desires such as "wanting to save that dear person" or "wanting to create an interesting future." I have been captivated by the infinite possibilities of research and have spent years conducting basic research on diseases such as Alzheimer's and cerebral palsy. However, there are still many challenges in the medical field that current science cannot solve. Furthermore, when we look at the world, global social issues threaten our future. However, it is precisely in such times that I believe in the power of research. We will use the power of technology to accelerate research and turn the future 50 years from now into the future 10 years from now. Let's all—corporations, universities, countries—join forces to solve societal challenges.
