Orizuru Therapeutics Inc. was established in 2021 as a spinout from Takeda Pharmaceuticals and Kyoto University. The underlying technology is based on innovations from induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) research. Our company is research and development-driven, aiming to develop iPSCs for the treatment of life-threatening diseases with substantial unmet needs. Our current focus areas include: 1. Developing regenerative medical products through cell therapy. 2. Providing iPSC-related expertise as a service to support drug discovery research.
