Foundation: 2011

Mission: The mission of our institute is to pursue research that will lead to the development of solutions for health-related problems commonly observed in large urban areas and developed countries. Utilizing results from the forefront basic research on molecular and cellular mechanisms of biological pathways and disease pathology, we will collaborate with municipal hospitals and clinics to predict, prevent, and treat health problems. We will also identify causes of unsolved diseas-es and develop drugs and therapies for them. Our mission is also to provide help and care with those suffering from serious diseases such as ALS to better the patients’ quality of life. It is also our mission to analyze the mental disturbances of the public and provide care and treatment.
