HOME >> About JST-CIRM Collaborative Research Program

Program Outline

Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) and California Institute for Regenerative medicine (CIRM) work together to establish and support a Japan-California collaborative research program in order to advance iPS cell research, develop therapies and conduct clinical trials. JST and CIRM provide research funding to the research teams in Japan and California respectively, according to their own rules and regulations in other words, JST provides support to Japanese researchers as part of JST’s Basic Research Program and CIRM provides support to California researchers utilizing its own program. Under this scheme, JST and CIRM each follows its own application call and evaluation process, with only those research proposals approved by both agencies funded.
