The newly founded Department of Cellular Regenerative Medicine has developed the world’s first methods of direct conversion from human fibroblasts to neural cells using chemical compounds only (CiN cells: chemical compound-induced neuronal cells). We are now focusing on the five research projects listed below. CiN cells are epoch-making because gene transfection is not needed in any steps.
