Design Concept

Based on the four colors - blue, green, red, and black - used in the logo for the Center for iPS Cell Research and Application (CiRA), Kyoto University, the lower line expresses the goal to widen and bridge iPS cell research to other research fields and organizations, which is the foundation's philosophy. The design concept intends to illustrate how cell manufacturing and quality evaluation connect basic iPS cell research to the industrial world for medical treatment.
