Objectives

The Forum for Innovative Regenerative Medicine (FIRM) was incorporated to quickly establish social systems to ensure safe and stable access to the benefits of research into regenerative medicine. Here at FIRM, not only do we seek complete cures for the ills that many medical patients suffer from, but we also strive to safeguard the national interest and contribute to international society.
Our mission is to pave the way for real, practical breakthroughs in regenerative medicine by pursuing broad, industry-led partnerships with governments, universities, and the private sector, by engaging with the media, for the purpose of building a great consensus on the commercialization process and the application of new regenerative medicine techniques in the community. More specifically, taking a big-picture view of the process of clinical research, approval, and worldwide promotion of regenerative medicine, we identify problems based on the scenario for the business development and industrialization of regenerative medicine, offer ongoing advice on relevant solutions without compromising the economy of healthcare. Above all, we see our role as a think tank for practical ideas aimed at innovation in the field of regenerative medicine.

Activities

Here at FIRM, our objective is to establish systems to ensure that the community has safe and stable access to the benefits of research into regenerative medicine. Not only do we seek complete cures for the ills that many medical patients suffer from, but we also strive to safeguard the national interest, contribute to international society, and pave the way for the commercialization of new regenerative medicine techniques with the purpose of building a social consensus on the application of such techniques. To that end, we engage in the following activities:
Advice from an international standpoint on commercialization strategies and issues regarding regenerative medicine;
Exchanges and tie-ups in Japan and internationally related to regenerative medicine;
Regenerative medicine surveys, publication of results and statistics;
Hosting and organizing research workshops and open lectures on regenerative medicine;
All activities incidental or related to the foregoing.
