Who we are

Innovative Scientists

Our institute seeks to illuminate precisely such a chemical basis of cells, creating compounds to control processes in cells such as stem cells (materials for cell control), and further down the road spark cellular processes to create chemical materials (cell-inspired materials).


Scientists running to go beyond their own wildest dreams
and be the one to find the future.
