Company Description

Peace of mind with iPSCs


I Peace(アイ・ピース)はiPS細胞技術を通じて、人生をより幸せにすることに貢献します。健康な方がより安心してより質の良い人生をおくれるように、また病に悩み苦しむ患者の方々を一日も早くその病苦から解放するために努力してまいります。そのためにはビジョンを言葉として飾るのではなく、I Peace(アイ・ピース)のメンバーは日夜真剣に考え、一つ一つの歩みを一日も早く実現するため着実に努力を重ねています。iPS細胞に関する様々な革新的技術を開発してきましたが、単に「革新的且つ役立つ技術だ」と唱えるだけでなく、その技術を具体的に活用するにはどのような問題点があるのか、どうすればその問題点を克服し人々の幸せにつなげていくことができるのか。高い理念をもちながら、地に足のついた事業として実現していくのがI Peace(アイ・ピース)です。どの様にすればiPS細胞技術が社会に実装されていくのか、道筋を見つけてまいります。現在、iPS細胞をはじめ様々なクリニカルグレード(医療用)細胞の作製には手間がかかり、製造コストも高く量産することが非常に難しいのが現実です。クリニカルグレードの細胞ラインの十分な確保や、個人用の細胞がある未来のため、I Peace(アイ・ピース)はiPS細胞の量産と低価格化

I Peaceには、iPS研究に開発当初から長年携わってきた日米の開発担当者を中心に、細胞培養士、バイオメディカル設備設計施工技術者、ロボティクス技術者、弁護士、投資銀行バンカー等日米の多彩な人材が集結しており、ビジョンの一日も早い実現に向け日々切琢磨しています。
