Drug Discovery Using iPSCs

The iPSC research created two innovative treatment methods, one is a regenerative medicine by cell transplantation using iPSCs, and the other is a new and innovative drug discovery method using iPSCs derived from patients. Time Therapeutics, Inc. was founded as a start-up based on research carried out at Kyoto University. The company’s mission is to advance and implement the innovative drug discovery method named “iPSC-based Drug Discovery: from dish to bedside” into socially beneficial results.

Innovative drug discovery with iPSCs derived from patients realizes:

  • (1)Accurate prediction of efficacy of medicinal compounds,
  • (2)Precise classification of targeted patients of medicinal compounds, and
  • (3)Appropriate pricing of medicinal compounds.
