Contract agreement of collaboration between Riken and Regience; derivation and cultivation of hair follicle-related stem cells maintaining high potency to reconstruct the hair follicle

Regience K.K. (hereafter, Regience) and RIKEN, Institute of Physical and Chemical Research (hereafter, RIKEN) made an agreement of collaboration to study toward “derivation and cultivation of hair follicle-related stem cells maintaining high potency to reconstruct the hair follicle”. In this collaboration, the expertise of RIKEN (the profound knowledge of Extracellular Matrix; ECM, accumulated by Dr. Hironobu Fujiwara, Team Leader of Tissue Microenvironment, Center for Developmental Biology; CDB, RIKEN) and of Regience (the technology of 3D cultivation system in which a biological environment suitable for the proliferation of mammalian cells is reproduced) will be combined to create stem cell niche* in vitro.This project is expected to leads to the final goal of the successive reconstruction of hair follicle in vitro.
