- AlzMed, Inc. was established in 2019.
We aim to implement the research results of the memory control function of the protein molecule "Drebrin" discovered by Tomoaki Shirao (President, Special Professor of Gunma University) in order to overcome Alzheimer's disease.
For the first year after its establishment, we mainly worked to support the patenting of Drebrin research results.
After Shirao became the representative director in 2020, he has been engaged in full-scale research and development activities in the diagnostic and drug discovery businesses at the Entrepreneur Lab, Division of University Corporate Relations, The University of Tokyo.
