Feasibility study on clinical application of newly obtained findings in
basic research was categorized by a US scientist, Dr. Pinedo, as translational
study, known as a phrase " from bench to bed". This concept of
translational research became widespread also in Japan, where three sectors,
academia- government-industry, are collaborating each other mainly by governmental
funds. However, it seems evident that ongoing organizational reform in
universities and reinforced financial and legal support by the government
are necessary but not sufficient for generation of numerous promising projects
without involvement of an enough number of industries with a high quality
of translational research taskforce. Furthermore the concept is applied
not only to development of new therapeutics but to other biotechnology
fields. We are convinced of the important role of ventures as a supplier
of innovative technologies in the framework of the above mentioned three
Through our broad network we intend to introduce such new, innovative and superior Bio-Technology from USA and Europe to Japanese industries. Also through our network we would introduce only screened one.
In the field of pharmaceutical and medical device/equipment, the development
of novel and innovative technology by ventures in USA and Europe is active.
The history of venture derived from academia, the existance of big sponsors
including fund, shorter period in the process of commercialization and
so on are the reasons, we think. As far as such situation remain unchanged,
such tendency may continue and importation of foreign technology in this
field will be still vital.
Under the above observation, we are sometimes required by Japanese Bio-Industries to introduce new, innovative and superior foreign Bio-Technology.
Though our activity is very limited, we have decided to organize new company in this field in order to support Japanese Bio-Industries more speedy and in a specialized manner.
In this respect your kind consideration and further support will be appreciated.
