Associate Professor, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, Tokai University School of Medicine
As a spine surgeon who treats back pain and other conditions, I was often frustrated by the lack of real solutions. The possibility of finding effective treatments has prompted me to continue research into regenerative medicine. I grew up in America, and I think that the emphasis which the American education system puts on practical thinking has certainly been behind some of my research achievements.
With Japanese medical research starting to fall behind internationally, TUNZ Pharma’s raison d’être definitely lies in engaging in regenerative medicine research and developing real solutions such as drugs and biomaterials that respond to the needs of medical practitioners and, above all, the needs of patients.
