About K Pharma
Accelerating the development of effective new treatment drugs through targeted R&D in regenerative medicine and drug discovery
K Pharma is dedicated to developing new drugs and treatments as quickly as possible for patients around the world who are suffering due to lack of effective treatments. Our innovative approach harnesses the combined expertise of industry and academia, drawing on the groundbreaking results of years of painstaking R&D in the academic sector as well as our own technical development prowess.
Our current focus is on two areas: iPS drug discovery, using iPS cells for pharmaceutical research; and regenerative medicine, which involves transplanting neural cells obtained through differentiation induction from iPS cells.
K Pharma is a bio-venture originating from Keio University. The K denotes Keio, and also references the ideals of kindness and knowledge, while Pharma is a contraction of pharmaceuticals, signifying our mission of drug discovery for regenerative medicine and other medical products.
