On April 1, 2015, SCA concluded a contract for commissioned research and development with the Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development (AMED), which was established on the same day. The research plans for projects based on the commissioning contract with the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) in fiscal 2014 will basically be carried over. Projects in the medical field for the ministries of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology; Health, Labour and Welfare; and Economy, Trade and Industry will be seamlessly promoted in all phases from basic research to work for practical utilization. There are high hopes that this will add impetus to attainment of the goal of industrializing regenerative medicine in this project.
